Acting CEO Kugandrie Govender said in a statement that in the future only black, brown and Indian consultants will be involved at Cricket South Africa.
Kugandrie Govender, the acting CEO of Cricket South Africa told several websites on Tuesday that they will no longer use white consultants unless there is “no one else with that white consultant’s relevant knowledge, skills, or experience. She says the undertaking, at a meeting with Minister Nathi Mthethwa on Monday, is a way for CSA to emphasize its commitment to transformation.
This could mean that someone like Jacques Kallis will not be involved as a batting consultant.
Every player, white or black, who spoke about Kallis’ involvement said how much his experience in the locker room benefited them.
CSA’s effort to rectify this, and to respond to the chorus of criticism that has resounded with the BLM movement in cricket, could now cause the governing body more trouble.
The IRR said in a statement on Wednesday that it would write to the ICC because “years of mismanagement and political and government interference” had shattered the values that the ICC pursued at CSA.
The IRR writes that it has now reached a point where “blatant racism is CSA policy”. He argues that CSA violates the ICC’s anti – discrimination policy.
