CSA and its chief executive Haroon Lorgat part ways

Cricket South Africa (CSA) and its chief executive Haroon Lorgat have parted ways with immediate effect.

CSA president Chris Nenzani confirmed the news on Thursday.

Nenzani said the reason was due to a breakdown in the relationship between the board and Lorgat.
