Graeme Smith the would be Director of South Africa Cricket Board
Cricket South Africa on Saturday is suspended its chief executive Thabang Moroe and named Jacques Faul in an acting capacity. They hope to confirm Graeme Smith as their director of cricket on Wednesday.
Faf Du Plessis said in a statement, “There’s too much negative stuff that has happened over the last four, five weeks. Our cricket is too strong to have so many issues all the time. We are too proud cricketing nation to be talking about this stuff all the time. The attention needs to be on the cricket and making sure we will build ourselves as a team and ourselves as an organisation to be great again.”
Faf continued- “For me it’s important to separate that from a player’s point of view, and if it needs me to be dealing with some of these things, then that’s OK. It’s about getting focus on what’s really important now, which is a Test series against England. As I said before, it’s already a little bit and things haven’t happened as they should have. But now we can start getting things on the right track.”
