- Decock says he’s ready to kneel down and protest
- More games to be played for South Africa
- Did not play in the game against the Windies
This will end the controversy that seemed to end the star’s career. Controversy erupted just before South Africa’s T20 World Cup match against the West Indies. South African players were instructed to kneel down and protest racism in all World Cup matches.
It was during the game draw that Decock was informed that he was not playing. The first report was that the withdrawal was due to personal reasons. However, it was later reported that Decock had resigned without approving the decision of the South African Cricket Board. Later, the star was criticized from many quarters.
Cricket South Africa has decided to kneel down and show solidarity as part of the Black Lives Matter protests around the world. Quinton Decock, the goalie-hitter, is also the former team captain. Strict action will be taken against the player who did not accept the Cricket Board’s decision. The board was reportedly considering banning him from cricket. Decock, who plays for the Mumbai Indians in the IPL, would have even been banned from participating in foreign tournaments.
However, the cricket board has expressed satisfaction with the explanation given by Decock. With this, the player will be able to play in more games. Decock said in a statement that he was grateful for the support of team members, including Captain Tempa Bavu.
Will the Indian cricket team change before the next match?
