Cricket South Africa CEO Haroon Lorgat 'Distressed' To Face Int'l Cricket Council Probe
Faced with an Int'l Cricket Council inquiry for "his alleged role in a dispute with India," Cricket South Africa CEO Haroon Lorgat said that he was "distressed" by the turn of events, according to the PTI. Lorgat said that he "was distressed on being asked to face a probe." Lorgat: "It is personally very distressing. But I had offered to be investigated because there was an allegation (against me). The less I say about this matter the better because its sub judice." Matters "came to a head recently" when CSA legal officer David Becker, who was an ICC legal adviser when David Becker was "at the helm of affairs of the world body," accused the Board of Control for Cricket in India of flouting the Future Tours Programme and BCCI President N. Srinivasan of "being manipulative." The ICC "agreed to investigate the matter, including Lorgat's reported role, even though Becker has maintained that the views expressed were completely his own" (PTI, 11/9).
