“These discussions need to continue because we still have some way to go to get all our people to fully appreciate the injustices of the past”

Overall, Pakistan managed to beat 11 sixes as South Africa produced an average bowling show with the exception of Maharaj, Rabada, and Lungi Ngidi.

Tabraiz Shamsi only threw four balls before skipping the rest of the game due to a tight groin. South African medical staff said they will examine him overnight and that necessary action will be taken.

“Unfortunately, some current players appear to be misinformed and believe taking the knee is supporting the notion that black lives matter more,” he said.

“They need to be educated so that they appreciate that taking the knee is all about a stand against racism and discrimination and supporting the notion that Black lives matter as much.

“It is a pity that the Proteas Team has not adopted a unified approach to the issue and highlights that even though we have been having discussions for a number of years already, these discussions need to continue because we still have some way to go to get all our people to fully appreciate the injustices of the past. I would like to see a recommendation from the Ombudsman [Dumisa Ntsebeza] urging the Proteas to adopt a unified approach.”

Dr. Mohammed Moosajee worked for 16 years in various roles on the national team until 2019. First as a doctor, then combined with the role of team manager.
