Cronje lawyers threaten legal action


CAPE TOWN, Reuters

Lawyers for disgraced South African cricket captain Hansie Cronje said on Tuesday they would sue the United Cricket Board (UCB) if there was no response later in the day to their demand for withdrawal of a life ban against him.

Cronje’s attorney, Les Sackstein, told Reuters legal action would be taken if the UCB had not backtracked by 4 p.m. (1400 GMT) on an October 4 resolution by its general council banning Cronje for life from all cricket under the auspices of the UCB and its affiliates.
