Cricket in South Africa is in shambles following Sports minister Nathi Mthethwa’s decision to ban Cricket South Africa. According to Newsflash, this will reportedly mean that the governing body will lose government funding and recognition as a result. The invoking of the ministerial powers also means that the national teams are stripped of their status. Mthethwa’s decision follows in-fighting within CSA and a worn-out restructuring process during which a permanent new board couldn’t be established.
