When Labuschagne's father spoke about playing cricket he siad that his son will never make it into the SA team because of pigmentation problems - that is why he chose to play for Australia. The same applies to Dawid Malan playing for England. Now it is Conway - who could not get into the provincial team when playing cricket in SA.
Bedingham is on his way to play for England and there are a number of youngsters going the same way. Yet Mozart is celebrating about that one and obviously lost the plot completely. A number of other younger players will soon be in the same boat.
I am afraid the 1970'ss situation is back again and SA players will not stay to play for SA because of the same scenario.
You don't want to take Pompous Piles seriously, laugh at him....hy weet fokol. Blind Freddie can see our best is plying their trade in other countries......he can't.
Yes politics has ruined many sporting careers for SA born players because of color and resulted in the players seeking fame and fortune elsewhere.
Every good player would love to represent their country of birth but alas Politics over everything and just look at the mess.
Does that mean that the colour of ones skin is again the determining factor in South African life?
For god sake are we going through that bullshit 2 year old behaviour again.
We are more than happy that Devon, Neil, BJ and a fee others have come to NZ.
It has strengthened NZ Cricket.
They have all delivered for NZ.
These guys are admired and very much appreciated in NZ.
Wagner is a real fighter.
Thank you South Africa
I am afraid we are now in the new apartheid era in SA with Whjtes, Coloreds and Indians being discriminated against.

‘Our best is (sic) plying their trade in other countries’. Okay….so who are the bowlers who are better than Ngidi, Rabada and Nortje? The floor is your’s Quisling, if you are not too afraid. And do get ‘is’ and ‘are’ right. It makes you look like such a fool.
People who once played for SA cannot go to other countries to play international rugby and youc commented only on three of those. That is not very clever - fact is we are beginning to lose young talent - especially in the batting Department.
There is just one issue to be cleared up and that is about Brevis - when are you going to start your attack on him?
Look it’s a very simple question not addressed to you. Quisling said that our best players are ‘plying their trade overseas’….I simply want him to name the bowlers who are better than Rabada, Ngidi and Nortje. Given his statement that should be easy ….so I await his answer, no need for you to involve yourself.
Some top bats have played for England Aus and NZ over the last few decades...KP, Trot, Labuschangne, Malan, someone playing for NZ, slipped my mind at present...we export way more than we import...same goes for doctors and engineers.
But oddly no top bowlers and even among the batsmen Amla and AB were better than the likes of KP. We have exported more rugby talent than cricket talent.
That doesn't make KP not good enough to play for SA...at that time SA had a stellar side, but KP should have gotten a look at least. He had no hope.
