Cricket South Africa (CSA) chairperson Lawson Naidoo is set to meet transformation ombudsman advocate Dumisa Ntsebeza ahead of the transformation hearings' restart next week following their postponement in May.

The hearings, part of CSA's Social Justice and Nation-building (SJN) project, were delayed at the 11th hour after director of cricket Graeme Smith and Anti-Corruption Unit chief Louis Cole's lawyers sent letters to raise legal concerns over the process.

Dumisa Ntsebeza, at the time, took issue with the last-minute handling of things before the hearings were postponed, but he was steadfast that the project needed to go ahead.
