Cricket South Africa suspends new race requirements after being whitewashed by England



The Interim Board of Cricket South Africa (CSA) has suspended for the time being the new transformation targets that the national team must meet.

This means that the Proteas can, in the future, aim to select six black players, two of whom are ethnically black.

Judith February, the spokesperson for the interim council, confirmed to Netwerk24 on Friday that these targets have been suspended for the time being until the council can discuss the matter.

According to Netwerk24, “Former judge Zak Yacoob (chairman of the interim council) said the council had not yet had the opportunity to discuss the issue of transformation and the policy around it,” February said.

“We understand transformation is very important and we will address it. In the meantime, the document submitted by the previous council will be suspended until the interim council can discuss it. ”

The Proteas recently lost the T20 series against England by 3-0.

The Proteas’ first one-day international against England was postponed until Sunday due to a positive coronavirus case in the South African cricket camp.

Cricket South Africa (CSA) says one of the Proteas was tested positive for the virus in the last round of tests, which was done on Thursday before the one-day series.
