True, the fact that there is resistance towards the inclusion of indigenous players in SA is holding back the teams' progress.lilDeath said:I must admit he did bowl well this season.
BTW, I noticed there are quite a couple of new faces in Int cricket which does not appear to be indigenous to the specific country.
Patel in NZ cricket, Mahmood and Panesar in Eng teams.
Just an interesting observation I made.
It will be outrageous to compare our soccer team to the cricket and rugby teams given the history of the country.DigitalSoldier said:Angelo thats not fair if you say that I can say look how many indigenous players are in the soccer team and they are all "rocking" the soccer world
Look when it comes to the soccer team, there's never been a color issue, whites have been representing South Africa since readmission into the national team, and representation in the team has never been so contradictory of the demographics as it is with Cricket and Rugby.Its a non-starter.DigitalSoldier said:Please explain angelo
Conversely, the fact that Mtini is black is irrelevant.Angelo said:There is more where he came from and I think fully utilising that talent is our only chance of ever dominating sides like Australia.
No, there is only resistence in including 'indigenous' players in the team BECAUSE they are indigenous. That's got nothing to do with tapping the talent of the country. It's reverse-apartheid, nothing more.Angelo said:
So then you agree that the colour issue is irrelevant to what makes a team good?Angelo said:Look when it comes to the soccer team, there's never been a color issue, whites have been representing South Africa since readmission into the national team, and representation in the team has never been so contradictory of the demographics as it is with Cricket and Rugby.Its a non-starter.
I didn't hear of any criticism about black players being in the cricket or rugby teams. I heard people complaining because players were getting in because of the colour of their skin.graviti said:However, when racial quotas was introduced, people roared at the idea, because you were going to be upsetting a winning formula, and yes, there was racist tension about it.
Shooo, we do I start...BTTB said:I have always wondered about AA in sport as the Nations pride and joy, Bafana Bafana is made up of all black players, but nobody says a thing about that?
Yet when it comes to Rugby AA is strictly imposed?
Double Standards IMO.
