Bumpers for Arendse

Finweek English Edition - - Front Page -

WHAT HAP­PENED NOR­MAN ARENDSE’S res­ig­na­tion from Cricket SA and the In­ter­na­tional Cricket Coun­cil was re­ceived un­sym­pa­thet­i­cally by the me­dia. Arendse’s rea­son for his res­ig­na­tion, that his “en­e­mies” in SA cricket are in­volved in un­der­hand schemes be­cause they’re sup­pos­edly op­posed to trans­for­ma­tion – was taken with a pinch of salt. He was bet­ter known for his con­tro­ver­sial uni­lat­eral de­ci­sions than his man­age­rial abil­ity, it was re­ported. RAP­PORT said Arendse’s res­ig­na­tion wasn’t at all as earthshak­ing as he seemed to think. Be­ing an of­fi­cial in SA sport is no pic­nic and Arendse was weighed and found too light. The Ci­ti­zen said: “Good rid­dance is the un­spo­ken con­sen­sus. It was a case of jump­ing be­fore he was pushed.”
