London, September 11
Former England captain Kevin Pietersen has likened the disaster in South African cricket to a “horror show” that’s ending the game in that nation.

The SASCOC’s motion, which implies that there isn’t a one to run every day affairs of CSA, is one other setback to the board which is in the midst of administrative chaos and dealing with allegations of corruption and racial discrimination.
Taking to Twitter, the South African-born Pietersen wrote, “Goodness me! What’s happening to cricket in SA is catastrophic.”
