The South African Cricketers Association has filed a court application in the Johannesburg High Court to get Cricket South Africa (CSA) to review and set aside its decision to restructure domestic cricket.

He says with England touring South Africa, there is no plan as to how the South African team is going to be selected.

Who is going to be in charge and that is not acceptable for players. There are unknown selectors selecting players, therefore, no accountability for selections.

The association has gone on record regarding the financial issues of CSA and the problems in the organisation have an impact on how the game is played by women cricketers and lower leagues, he explains.

You need good structures around the Proteas, credible selectors and proper management without that the team is starting on the back foot.
