The board of Cricket SA (CSA) has taken a drastic but welcome stance and ordered all Proteas team members to take the knee in their remaining T20 World Cup matches in the United Arab Emirates.

CSA was left embarrassed after the team displayed different postures in support of the Black Lives Matter movement with some team members taking the knee, while others remained on their feet and raised their fists before the Proteas were clobbered by Australia in their opening World Cup assignment.

The team posture, according to the CSA board, created an unintended perception of disparity or lack of support for the BLM movement. The board said it met on Monday evening and unanimously agreed to issue a directive requiring all Proteas players to adopt a consistent and united stance against racism by taking the knee before the start of their remaining World Cup matches.

It won't help them win

I see that SA never learned from the fake forced RAINBOW NATION you can't force racists to kneel what are you trying to achieve 🤷‍♂️ to look good in front the world while our skeletons are way too much to hide fcuk it SA is the most RACIST and the most UNEQUAL country in the world

Politics in sport. Way to go. Well done qdk

Welcomed by who its a joke 🤬

…..‘drastic but welcome stance….’ Bullshit! Politics have no place in sport, especially when you have a minister of sport and culture who has no clue of sport or culture.

White cricketers are being treated like fair game - whites seldom murder. How does forcing white cricketers to take the knee compensate for the 57 black people murdering each other daily in SA?

Politics interfering with sports again.

This is pointless, taking a knee has become nothing else but a performance at this point. I'd much rather prefer actual initiatives on combating racism as opposed to this. Whether a player takes a knee or not isn't doing anything to address the issues at hand.

Fuck South African cricket… Welldone to Quinten de Kock for refusing to take the knee for Marxist BLM movement. To the journalist who wrote this article… please can you inform us of the good BLM has done for black people. I just wanna see something….

Pathetic stance

take the knee for what?

Can they take a knee against anc's looting ?

Will it not be more sincere If someone does something because they want to, and not being forced

Ayi soon we will all be forces to take the knee for a movement no one understands

We’re held hostage by anarchist

If they can be forced to wear pink , they can be forced the take the knee

More and more, free will is being demolished and people are being forced to do what they are not willing to do ... sad AND scary!

Well done on you QDK👏. I salute you for stance on the matter! Keep politics out of the sport you love so much!

Good on you Qdk.
