Leading sponsor drops CSA

The pressure on South African cricket’s leading administrators increased on Friday when a major sponsor announced it would not renew its agreement with Cricket South Africa.

A spokesman for Standard Bank, which sponsors the national team, made it clear the move was linked directly to recent controversies, which have led to calls for CSA president Chris Nenzani and chief executive Thabang Moroe to resign.

“In light of recent developments at CSA, which are a culmination of long-standing problems which have damaged Standard Bank’s reputation, it has decided not to renew its partnership,” said Thulani Sibeko, the bank’s chief marketing and communications officer.

The bank will continue to sponsor the team until its agreement with CSA ends on April 30 next year, effectively the end of the current season.
