Former South Africa captain and director of cricket, Graeme Smith, has been cleared of racism allegations by two independent arbitrators.
Smith, aged 41, was among several Cricket South Africa (CSA) employees implicated in “tentative findings” made by the social justice nation building (SNJ) ombudsman last year.
The report claimed Smith had engaged in racially biased and discriminatory behavior on three counts as Proteas captain and CSA’s director of cricket.
However, Smith was cleared of all allegations by two independent advocates, who found “no evidentiary basis” the former opener had engaged in racial discrimination
According to reports, CSA has been ordered to pay Smith’s costs for the arbitration process.
