Maiden overs could take on a whole new meaning.

If a black male spin bowler burst on to the scene with the talent of Shane Warne, he would be fast-tracked straight into the Proteas. If a woman arrived with the same talent (and there is absolutely no reason why a woman couldn’t spin the ball as far or have as much control) she would face a barrage of litigation, red tape, disdain, and outright verbal abuse – and that would be before she’d even be allowed to play in a lowly domestic franchise team.

Great Article. When the politicians start realising that we want to be winners & stop playing the race game so much better for South Africa. Soccer will never be successful because it is run by incompetent administrators who are usually political appointees. Get one of the English caoches to run our soccer acacdemy & then Bafana may have a chance. Cricket & Rugby is successful because the Academies are run by Sportsmen who have the sport at heart & do not make political decisions.
