im no expert either Felix, but these guys are professional sportsmen
To me, and fully happy to be corrected here, this is the exact situation Kevin Pieterson described as he reasons for moving to England, except he was blatantly lying, I can't even think of a black player in his era who came thru for the National side(in that period).
Slightly later Ntini came along to be the significant black player in the team-prior to that......boucher,smith,kallis,the list goes on.
Pieterson pulled the race card......now years later, the race card is actually real.
that's how I see it, but as I said, happy to be corrected if facts are wrong.
both these current players have had meetings with their board very recently.
