MEDIA STATEMENT ON FRAUDULENT DOCUMENT

Tuesday, 23 June 2020

Cricket South Africa (CSA) has established the existence of and are in the possession of a fraudulent document claiming that Mark Boucher is a shareholder of 3TC Cricket.  This information is incorrect, and it is emphatically pointed out that Mark Boucher is not a Director of this company.  This document was maliciously sent to journalists to discredit Cricket South Africa, its employees, and, in particular, Mark Boucher.  We will launch an internal investigation into the origin of this false and fraudulent document and will also lay criminal charges.  

It is very important that the person/s who act with the intent of harming cricket are exposed and rooted out of the game.  We will leave no stone unturned to make sure that the malicious perpetrators face the full might of the law.

Francois Pienaar, CEO of 3TC Cricket has confirmed that Mark is not a Director and that no other CSA employee is in any way associated with 3TC.  Pienaar welcomes any forensic investigation into this initiative, should there be a need for anyone to look into and test this.  

Pienaar concluded that all profits raised for the once-off event will be donated to the hardship fund helping cricket people who have been affected by the pandemic. 

Members of the media are welcome to contact Francois Pienaar for any further inquiries.
