Cricket South Africa's (CSA) entire board has now resigned.

On Sunday, a total of six board members including acting president Beresford Williams had stepped down as the troubled organisation began adhering to the requests from its Members Council that, in line with requests coming out of government, the board step aside.

Then, on Monday morning, the rest followed.

In a series of tweets, CSA confirmed that the rest of the board - non-independent director Zola Thamae and the three remaining independents, Eugenia Kula-Ameyaw, Vuyokazi Memani-Sedile and Marius Schoeman - had also quit following a meeting of the Members' Council on Sunday.

the statement from CSA read.

With the annual CSA AGM expected to take place next month or in December, a task team will now be assembled - in line with requests from government and SASCOC - that will run CSA in the interim.

At the suggestion of the South African Cricketers' Association (SACA), a former player is expected to sit on the interim 'board' that is also expected to be made up of government and Sascoc representatives.

Sports minister Nathi Mthethwa had earlier this month confirmed his intentions to intervene in the running of CSA and given the organisation until the close of business this Tuesday to submit written reasons as to why that should not happen.

The hope from CSA's side will be that this latest development satisfies Mthethwa.

The Proteas are due to host England in three ODIs and three T20s next month.
