"Then there was the storm that followed South Africa’s flop, after it was revealed De Villiers, who retired from international cricket in May last year, had spoken to captain Faf du Plessis the day before the squad was announced and offered to play.“It was two mates chatting over a beer. It should never have got further than that. I don’t know who leaked it – I wish I did!’"
8. AB was bietjie getrek en het kak gepraat met sy maaitjie.
"We would have had a better chance with AB in the team, but we would have set a dangerous president for the future. CSA were right in not selecting. Principals are still important and a winning at all cost mentality leads to compromised ideals....not worth it in the long-run."
I agree that it's not principled but the principle should be based on all things being equal as practiced in free societies .
The question is how principled is CSA after the Jaques Rudolph/Justin Ontong and the Philander/ Kyle Abbot debacles.
How principled is a policy mandating the selection of 3 black and 3 others of colour.
You cannot have normal selections in an abnormal society, CSA under the control of the ANC have succeeded in normalizing the abnormal and in the process have the most unprincipled selection criteria of any nation on our planet.
As for the leakage? .....that is anyone's guess and I doubt if it came from AB.
Howzit Owen!...Ja 'n paar biere kan die tong 'n bietjie losmaak.
Denny, agreed, ethics seems to be a problem in all institutions in SA at the moment.
I've always believed ethics to be a problem in SA....not just "at the moment."
