Dalmiya was Instrumental in Bringing South Africa Back to International Cricket
Ahead of their country’s historic 72-day tour to India, Cricket South Africa condoled the sudden demise of BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya, who passed away in Kolkata on Sunday night. “We knew that he was not in good health in the last while but it has nevertheless come as a shock to all of us and I extend the sympathy of the CSA community to his family, friends and cricketing colleagues and indeed to the entire Indian cricket community,” said CSA president Chris Nenzani.
“The fact that he served two terms as president of the BCCI and was also president of the ICC speaks volumes both about his love for the game and the strong leadership he was able to provide. Mr. Dalmiya was the man who proposed our re-entry as a Full Member of the ICC and he played a major role right to the end to ensure our relationship with the BCCI will remain strong and steadfast,” he added.
