Cricbuzz South Africa correspondent Telford Vice discuses the state of CSA and the challenges they have been facing.

Cricket South Africa (CSA) has been hit with another blow. Standard Bank has confirmed that they will end their sponsorship of the Proteas in 2020.

Standard Bank says it considers it appropriate and fair to give CSA adequate notice so that it may explore alternative sponsorships to replace the banking group.

Meanwhile, CSA has also confirmed to Eyewitness News it has suspended former acting chief financial officer Ziyanda Nkuta along with procurement manager Lundi Maja and administrator Dalene Nolan.

Africa Melane speaks to Cricbuzz South Africa correspondent Telford Vice about the state of SA cricket.

RELATED: 'Cricket SA is going through challenges, but its not in shambolic affair at all'

If you are looking for good news in South African Cricket at the moment, there isn't.

Telford Vice, Correspondent - Cricbuzz South Africa

Vice says the board has been weak for a very long time and its independence has been ineffectual.

He adds that Cricket SA is on a good path when it comes to transformation but there are still racial issues.

The game is still caught up in whiteness to the largest degree, it is played in the better schools.

Telford Vice, Correspondent - Cricbuzz South Africa

I know there has been a lot of transformation but it is still the case that cricket is too white a game in the public perception and how it locates itself in our society, it is still too white a game and that is obviously a problem.
