South Africa cricket is in major crisis after the country’s cricket board Cricket South Africa was suspended by the Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee, a government body overlooking the broader sports in the country. This means that Cricket South Africa has ceased daily operations and it throws into doubt the future of the team in international cricket. International Cricket Council rules does not allow government interference and this could mean that the national team’s participation in international tournaments could be in trouble. This unprecedented development comes after months of turmoil in the Cricket South Africa administration. CSA does not agree with the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee instruction that the entire board and executive leadership be sidelined. SASCOC's action, which means that there is no one to run daily affairs of CSA, is another setback to the board which is in the middle of administrative chaos and facing allegations of corruption and racial discrimination.
