CSA apologises to CA

CSA apologises to CA

Cricket Australia (CA) could seek to bring charges under the International Cricket Council (ICC) code of conduct after South African officials were photographed posing with spectators wearing Sonny Bill Williams masks aimed at taunting David Warner during the second Test in Port Elizabeth. Warner was fined 75% of his match fee and earned three demerit points for the incident, later claiming de Kock had made a "vile and disgusting comment", about his wife Candice.

Warner's wife, Candice Warner, had a sexual encounter with Williams in a hotel toilet in Australia in 2007 before her relationship with the cricketer began.

Warner has already been at the centre of controversy in this Test series after a run in with wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock, who allegedly taunted the Australian vice-captain about his wife, was released via CCTV. We let people in with Hashim Amla beards.

Eksteen is CSA's head of commercial and marketing, while Kazi is the body's head of communications.

"I don't see fans turning up at All Blacks games with Candice Falzon masks, so how dare they turn up at a South African cricket game in masks of someone who the wife of one of the cricketers was formerly involved with".

CSA president Chris Nenzani apologised to the board of Cricket Australia and its officials, team management, players and their families.

CSA said it would follow its "normal internal processes", with regards to Eksteen and Kazi, which will likely begin with an internal investigation.

According to Fairfax Media, the Australian camp were aware of the masks going into the first day of the Test, and asked that they be banned. Kazi and Eksteen were then contacted by the fans and met them at the gates, where it was decided that they would be allowed in.

CSA President Chris Nenzani also weighed in on the matter: "On behalf of CSA I extend my honest apologies to the Board of Cricket Australia (CA), its officials, team management, players and their families".

Both South African officials must be sacked for this, it is bewildering that they would both stoop so low as this. Australia's Nathan Lyon also was punished for an over-zealous celebration of a wicket in that first test.
