Quinton de Kock can be blamed! may be out of the tournament, soon the cricket board will make a decision

South Africa’s star hitter Quinton de Kock may be in trouble. The South Africa Cricket Board (CSA) has learned of De Kock’s decision to withdraw from the game for “personal reasons”. Following this decision by De Kock, there are reports of tension in the team. On Tuesday, the board had ordered its players to kneel down and express their support for the anti-racism movement ahead of T20 World Cup matches. In a shocking move, de Kock was unavailable for selection for the match against the West Indies at the ICC T20 World Cup in Dubai on Tuesday. The board said it will await the team’s management report before deciding the next course of action on the matter.

Cricket South Africa issued a statement in this regard. According to him, “The Board has learned of the personal decision of South African goalkeeper Quinton de Kock not to participate in the ‘kneel’ before the game against the West Indies on Tuesday.” De Kock had also hinted that he would not be part of the initiative in the past, saying: “It should be everyone’s decision, no one should be forced to do anything in life. This is how I see things.” Earlier Monday night, CSA unanimously agreed that all South African players will kneel before the start of the rest of the matches. The board ordered the players to show solidarity, citing the country’s apartheid past.

The board said: “According to the CSA board directive issued Monday night, it is necessary for all players to ‘kneel’ continuously (before each T20 World Cup match) showing solidarity against him. racism. It is also a global campaign against racism, adopted by players under the Sports Code, because they recognize the power of sport to bring people together. ” CSA said on the unlock: “Before the board takes the next step. The team will wait for another management report. All players are expected to follow these instructions for the remainder of the World Cup.”

South African cricketers appear to be divided on the issue, with some players standing with their fists rather than “kneeling” before the opening match of the T20 World Cup against Australia, while others keep their hands behind their back. Fast pitcher Enrich Norkia and goalkeeper Heinrich Klaasen stood with their hands behind their back, even as their teammates used different methods to express their support for the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement. On Tuesday, however, both players were ‘sitting on their knees’ with the rest of the team.

Supporting De Kock, former England captain Michael Vaughan tweeted: “Surely it is up to the individual to decide whether they want to join any movement or not. A cricket board has to ask players to do so.” But if the player does not. he wants to do it, so he shouldn’t stop playing cricket. ”Previously, the Indian team had also protested against racism by kneeling under the global ‘Black Lives Matter’ campaign before the first match against Pakistan on Sunday.
