Johannesburg - The disciplinary hearing into Cricket SA's (CSA) suspended chief executive Gerald Majola is underway, but it is likely to take longer than expected.
"As far as we're concerned, the hearing got underway the moment we were advised that an advocate had been appointed to chair the disciplinary hearing," CSA spokesperson Michael Owen-Smith said on Thursday.
"Counsel for both sides were served with papers and the hearing is in progress and being conducted in private. It is now in their hands."
John Myburgh was appointed by the Bar Council as the independent chairperson to head the disciplinary hearing while the time frame for completion was initially set for May 31.
"We cannot put a time frame on it but, frankly, that's not going to happen as the process has only just got going," Owen-Smith said.
"It will be done as quickly as possible but it will take considerably longer than initially anticipated."
