SOUTH AFRICA. The South African cricket team has a danger of getting banned from international cricket after recent revelations of misconduct by senior authorities from the South African government.

Tension between government and Cricket South Africa

The laws and norms of the International Cricket Council (ICC) forbid interference by the government on issues related to cricket. If a government of any country tries to interfere, then they risk face punishment by the ICC.

Punishment usually includes a complete ban from international outings until the cricket body of the country starts to function independently. According to the reports, the tension between the SA government and Cricket South Africa (CSA) has been going on for a long time.

The statement from SA sports minister, Nathi Mthethwa, clearly stated that he had informed about the same matter to the International Council of Cricket (ICC).

Meanwhile, the South African team is likely to miss their England Tour.

Two officials charged for misconduct and corruption

After a long-running investigation, Thabang Moroe, the CEO of CSA, was fired for alleged misconduct in August. However, CSA refused to comply with reports by the independent investigators.

In addition to that, CSA had released a public summary with the report of the forensic investigation’s findings this month. The cricket body was also asked to submit their report to the South African law bodies for further investigation.

Moroe and former chief operating officer of CSA, Nassei Appiah, were found guilty of misconduct as per the reports.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, lawmakers had questioned why the other executives and board members were exempted from the investigation. The report was labelled as one-sided as lawmakers accused the CSA of hiding wrong-doing.
