South African cricket has been embroiled in controversy ahead of India’s first international friendly trial, but captain Dean Elgar said his team was “looking for” the best “in the world depending on the team’s performance. South African cricket has faced a management crisis in the last 24 months and the consequences are so great that Elgar cannot remember who runs the country’s cricket. Not only that, the game also faces anti-discrimination issues.
Last month, the Social Justice and Nation Building Commission (SJN), in a statement, criticized former South African captain and Director of Cricket South Africa (CSA) Graeme Smith, current head coach Mark Boucher and former fighter AB de Villiers for intimidation. racism. He was accused of ‘racism’. SJN also criticized the CSA for selecting players based on race. In an interview with reporters during the Boxing Day Test against India, Elgar was asked a question about the current controversy over South African cricket as expected, but said the team was not too concerned about it.
He said, “No, it’s not hard enough for us. As players, last year and a half, we used to hear bad news. We try to change. Of course, making topics like this is not appropriate. ” Elgar says: “We just want to focus on our cricket. We want to focus more on playing tough games against India. It is better to return to South Africa. ” The left-hander said, “For us it is all about focusing on cricket, planning for the next few days, improving our cricketing skills.
Elgar, however, argued that tackling the instability in the CSA system was not easy. “There is not much stability in the vision of the supervisors. There are many administrators we do not know who are currently working. We hope the CSA will soon be calm. ” Elgar said he was disappointed that the coach and team managers were not getting enough support. “I think we support our coach based on the players’ attitude, we have to love him very much. I think he sometimes works very hard. It’s a very (very unknown) thing because I know what they do behind the scenes. “The teacher deserves to be criticized.
