Meet Gerald Majola, Cricket South Africa's Main Man With African Business Review

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - May 24, 2011) - In post-apartheid South Africa, cricket is more than just a game. The national team has come to symbolise a modern day, unified Rainbow Nation.

The man at the helm of Cricket South Africa (CSA), Gerald Majola, now in his 11th year, has become the most experienced Chief Executive Officer in world cricket.

Born in the Eastern Cape in 1959, it was perhaps destiny that Mongezi Gerald "Gailer" Majola would fulfil a life in sport.

Majola's father, Eric, was a legendary Black Springbok in both rugby and cricket in the '50s and '60s, while his mother Jumartha dedicated her life to helping the local community of New Brighton in Port Elizabeth.

As CEO, he has experienced mega highs and heartbreaking lows overseeing the Proteas.

South Africa reached number one in the world in both the Test and One Day forms of the game, but have also crashed out of three World Cups, including the most recent held in the Indian sub-continent, prematurely.

African Business Review captured an exclusive interview with Majola to discuss what being the man in charge of a sporting body that carries the hopes of a nation is like.
