The politics of race in South African cricket

I urge you to read this article, from a Malay blogger, that I’ve stumbled across. Although I can’t yet fully understand or appreciate the problems of race in South African cricket, England’s tour there has certainly brought it to the forefront of my mind and I’m trying to absorb as much info on it as possible.

He also highlights a story that had completely passed me by:

Steve Bucknor has revealed that both he and Aleem Dar received death threats on the last day of England’s final Test against South Africa at Centurion…”I was told that the words the caller used were ‘We are going to get rid of Aleem Dar and Steve Bucknor, we are going to shoot them’,” Bucknor said.
