NO TRANSFORMATION IN GAUTENG CRICKET?

STATEMENT ISSUED BY CEDRIC FROLICK, MP
 UDM SPOKESPERSON ON SPORT

The Gauteng/ Northern Titans cricket team, playing against England on Friday is lily white.

The UDM would have thought that such a team could be fertile ground from which to launch potential new players into our national team.  More so, since the Gauteng cricket authorities boast about spending the most money on development programmes aimed at transformation in cricket.  Is this a futile exercise- or a mere smoke screen?

The Gauteng cricket outfit is affiliated with the United Cricket Board and subscribes to its transformation policy and programmes.  Is the United Cricket Board satisfied with the progress in Gauteng-or lack of it?
