South African cricket is currently embroiled in a deep crisis with the burgeoning tensions between the board and the players. Meanwhile, tensions within the administration are also creeping up by the day as the second independent director recently stepped down from his role.
Calls for the resignation of Cricket South Africa (CSA) head Thabang Moroe have risen with even former board president Ali Bacher joining in the protests.
The off-field tensions have only been compounded by the declining standards of performances of the Proteas in international cricket.
South Africa crashed to a defeat in their opening game of the World Cup against Bangladesh and finished seventh in the mega-event.
They later faced thumping defeats in the away Test series in India. All of the CSA politics within and the effect on their results on the field do not bode well for South Africa cricket as they try to navigate through the myriad of problems.
