“Faf has decided to appeal the match referee’s decision after he and his legal team had studied the written reasons provided by the match referee.” commented CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat.

“In his mind Faf is clear that he did not alter the condition of the ball nor did he intend to do so and that the match referee was not correct to find him guilty. He is understandably feeling aggrieved.”

“CSA will support him to appeal the decision before an independent Judicial Commissioner as there are issues relating to fair and just process, interpretation of the rules, science and performance that needs to be considered,” concluded Mr Lorgat.

As the matter will be subject to further legal process, neither Faf du Plessis nor CSA will make further comment on this matter.
