    Kwa-Zulu Natal - disturbing trend

    Their team :-

    KwaZulu-Natal Player Pages: R Gobind, WL Madsen, MD Sanders, K Smit, Y Singh, KC Africa, D Smit, N Dladla, W Fynn, WP Lombard, S Mhlongo, ZA Abrahim, U Govender, TD Pillay.

    http://www.cricinfo.com/db/NEW/LIVE/...29JAN2005.html

    Players of Indian origin :-
    R.Gobind, Y.Singh, U.Govender, TD.Pillay

    Black players :- quite a lot from the looks of it.

    This team makes me very apprehensive about the South African selection policies. Tsolilike selection was just the tip of the ice berg. From what I have heard, the school and younger teams have this much more evident and sadly its precipitating in the FC teams as well.

    Just because they have a lot of black players, doesn't mean they are in there because of the colour of skin...

    The worst problem of the quota system, is that any succesful black person in South Africa is now looked on as if they shouldn't really be doing their job... By those still wishing they were behind the walls of apartheid anyway..

    Top statement.

    You can't assume that because the black players are outnumbered in the FC game they're not as good or even better than their white counterparts.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Even nicer to see KZN fielding a guy who has had the pleasure of bowling at yours truly

    Final scorecard as opposed to the live version... KZN won by one wicket following a 32-run last wicket stand between Govender and Ahmed Amla

    But theyve produced test players such as Pollock and Klusener, so theyre just a teamw ithout their stars. Look at NSW in the ING cup - they're a long way behind, but it's becuase players such as Katich, Clarke, McGrath, Haddin are all too busy playing for Austarlia.

    In South Africa, colour may be a factor (but not in FC cricket, seriosuly), but I dont think it has anything to do with performances.
    USA Today finds that 3 out of 4 people make 75% of the population.

    From a distance, it appears to be a good thing there are so many black and coloured players in the team. Isn't that the whole idea of growing the sport in South Africa?

    I really don't see the problem here.

    When you have players like Tsolilike coming over, you cant help butwonder. Also, its no secret that the quote system is running rampant.

    I dont have a problem with black or coloured lpayers but they should be the best.

    I only always wish the best team plays always. With the quotas starting right from the school teams, that is sadly not the case.

    Tsolekille definitely has set the wrong precendent. For people like us, looking at things from a distance, once we see a RSA FC team with a lot of blacks and asians, we always tend to think "There goes the quota system again." I mean, that Natal side could be the best they have, but it is hard to not have our brains thinking about the quota system at some level.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    It is present right from the lowest levels. As a white young school boy, I would be frustrated if a coloured young player gets into the team ahead of me even he is worse.

    Be fair. Tsolekile is good enough to average 30 in FC cricket and is a very good wicketkeeper. Why shouldn't he be playing FC cricket?
