Former Cricket South Africa (CSA) chief executive Haroon Lorgat was included Friday in a nine-man interim board tasked with restoring the image of the scandal-tainted organisation.

The 60-year-old ex-International Cricket Council (ICC) chief executive led South African cricket for four years from 2013 before departing after a breakdown in his relationship with the national body. Recent administrative crises led to the entire board resigning by Monday this week and the nine replacements headed by a judge, Zak Yaqoob, have been given a three-month tenure.

Former chief executive Thabang Moroe was blamed for much of the CSA mismanagement and, after being suspended last December, was sacked two months ago.
