JOHANNESBURG - Cricket South Africa have made parts of the Fundudzi Report public.

The embattled organisation has done this following the backlash from the Sports Minister, Sascoc, sponsors and employees.

While it's the move has been welcomed, there are still many unanswered questions.

CSA Board member John Mogodi said, "at the outset, I would like to dispel any misconceptions of insolence and defiance in matters relating to the release of the complete Forensic Report and reaffirm CSA's commitment to transparency."

The report released is a summarised version, with some details redacted.

The blame for the governance crisis at CSA is being placed at dismissed CEO Thabang Moroe's feet.

Eleven of twenty areas of concern were under Moroe's watch, according to the report.

The organisation did not take questions following the briefing.

Sascoc, who had requested the full report, was also not informed of the media engagement and the decision to release parts of the report.

Acting Sascoc CEO Ravi Govender said, "it's a redacted summary, I believe, as well, it's actually irrelevant until we have the full document."

"We don't want to be misinformed or have a misperception of issues unless we read the full un-summarised and unredacted version of the report."

Sascoc maintains its resolution to appoint an independent task team to look into CSA's affairs remains.
