Cricket South Africa (CSA) Chief Executive Officer Gerald Majola has been dismissed from his post after a disciplinary hearnig found him guilty of nine charges that were laid against him.

The hearing was commissioned following receipt of the Nicholson report into the internal affairs of CSA, and headed by Advocate Karel Tip SC.

The charges include non-disclosure of bonuses from CSA's hosting of the 2009 Indian Premier League.

In a statement posted on CSA's website, they revealed that they had sacked Majola as per the recommendation of the hearing:

"On 19 October 2012, the disciplinary chairman issued his findings on sanction which CSA will implement with immediate effect. The sanction handed down by Advocate Tip SC was that Mr Majola is dismissed from his service with CSA with immediate effect.

"The Disciplinary Hearing was an internal matter but it is a matter of broad public interest and, therefore, the findings made by Advocate Tip SC and the ruling on sanction is set out in full detail in the attached finding for public consumption."

The statement also added that Majola's legal team had requested an adjournment and subsequently withdrew from the hearing.

Majola was suspended in March when the Nicholson report was produced.
