The disciplinary hearing of suspended Cricket South Africa (CSA) chief executive Gerald Majola will go ahead next week, despite a special plea not to go ahead with it by his legal team.

Advocate Karel Tip, the independent chairperson of Majola's hearing, on Friday dismissed the special plea, saying the hearing would commence on Tuesday.

Majola was suspended in March after a long-running bonus scandal following the 2009 Indian Premier League T20 tournament, which South Africa hosted, Sport24 reports.

The Nicholson Inquiry, instituted after Sport Minister Fikile Mbalula called for an independent probe, found that 4.7 million rand in bonuses had been paid to CSA staff without clearance from the board or the remuneration committee. (ANI)
