IS THERE SOME­THING ‘FISHY’ IN DOL­PHINS CRICKET?

Finweek English Edition - - LIFESTYLE -

THE KWAZULU-NATAL Cricket Union (KZNCU) will not re­new the con­tract of CEO Jesse Chel­lan when it ex­pires in Septem­ber.

It wasn’t too long ago that Chel­lan was praised for the work he was do­ing, and the Dol­phins fran­chise seemed to be head­ing in the right di­rec­tion.

The Dol­phins won the RAM SLAM Twenty20 last sea­son and the board said that un­der Chel­lan, the union was on an “up­ward rev­enue curve”.

What amazes me though is the num­ber of cur­rent job ti­tles of the KZNCU chair­man Gra­ham Abra­hams. Abra­hams is also pres­i­dent of Bas­ket­ball SA, an ex­ec­u­tive board mem­ber of the SA In­sti­tute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS), in a full-time po­si­tion as Su­perS­port’s direc­tor of Le­gal Af­fairs and En­ter­prise and a trus­tee of the Sports Trust.

De­spite sev­eral emails to find out when Bas­ket­ball SA had its last elec­tions or AGM, the re­sponse is a deadly si­lence. In fact, the last re­sponse I got from Abra­hams was: “Please do not send me emails.”
