Proteas fans slam quota for black players in domestic cricket teams

Johannesburg, Oct 4 (ANI): South African cricket fans have expressed outrage at a new quota system for black players proposed by Cricket South Africa for domestic franchise cricket.

According to Sport24, the new ruling would force franchise teams to field at least two black African players in their starting teams.

73 percent of fans in a poll said that they were against a system that does not pick players purely on merit.

However, one fan said that he welcomed the view because even the Australian team looked more diverse than the current South African team.

Another fan said that it was downright illegal and racist, and it was a new injustice in the process of addressing an old one. (ANI)
