JOHANNESBURG: Cricket South Africa (CSA) has set up a project - Cricket for Social Justice and Nation Building (SJN) to address the allegations of racial discrimination in the sport. Former speedster Makhaya Ntini had recently alleged that he was feeling 'forever lonely' as a result of the racial discrimination within the national side during his playing days.
"The Cricket South Africa (CSA) Board of Directors has noted the latest developments in the country, with the Black Lives Matter (#BLM) campaign lead taken by Proteas fast bowler Lungisani Ngidi," CSA said in a statement.
"This triggered many allegations of racial discrimination in cricket from former cricket players like Makhaya Ntini and others.
"The national outcry by cricket fans, the greater South African public and broad stakeholder groups could not be ignored. The Transformation Committee of the Board developed a sustainable response strategy, under its Project: Cricket for Social Justice and Nation Building (SJN)," it added. IANS
