Haroon Lorgat, the former ICC CEO, has been appointed Cricket South Africa's new chief executive.

The position has been vacant since October last year, when Gerald Majola was fired in the aftermath of the bonus-payments scandal.

Although CSA refused to confirm the other candidates, Lorgat is believed to have seen off challenges from at least three other hopefuls.

He was previously a treasurer of CSA and convenor of selectors, and he spent four years as CEO of the ICC.
