Following on from the OfficialCSA debacle, let's talk about African cricket's decade of mismanagement and missed opportunities CSACrisis

In a decade bookended by African sporting accomplishment, from the continent hosting its first soccer World Cup to South Africa's remarkable Rugby World Cup triumph, the game of cricket finds itself without a comparable crowning achievement to boost its profile in the region and generate much-needed revenue.

Domestic legal battles, debt-busting austerity measures and the steady departure of top-class players to take up overseas contracts leaves CSA on an uneven footing at a time when on-field results are also under scrutiny. Consecutive test whitewashes suffered against Sri Lanka and India signal that life beyond iconic players such as AB de Villiers, Hashim Amla and Dale Steyn will prove difficult, while a seventh-placed finish in the one-day international World Cup in England this year fell below expectations for a team expected to be a title contender.
