Johannesburg - Cricket South Africa (CSA) says the 'unanimous support' the International Cricket Council (ICC) had received from South Africa was subject to approval.

On Tuesday the ICC announced in Dubai plans relating to the future structure, governing of the game and financial models of the organisation.

It said it had received unanimous support from members including CSA.

"CSA wishes to clarify the statement released by the ICC earlier today (Tuesday) with regard to the "unanimous support at the ICC board meeting for key principles," Cricket SA said in a statement.

It said its support was subject to the approval of the respective boards of the member countries, after which a final decision would be taken at a follow-up ICC board meeting on 8 February.

"We will be convening a joint session of our CSA board and certain key stakeholders as soon as is practically possible to consider the principles," said CSA president and board chairperson Chris Nenzani.

"One of the hallmarks of our new administration has been an absolute adherence to the principles of good corporate governance and we do not intend to deviate from this.

"Our position will be subject to full consideration by our board and other stakeholders."

The South African cricketing body said it would make no further comment until the CSA board meeting.
