Latest Cricket News: In breaking news for the South African cricket squad, it has been revealed that Proteas star Quinton de Kock has withdrawn from consideration owing to his stance on the Black Lives Matter movement. While Cricket South Africa (CSA) had issued a guideline before this match that the South African team must collectively take a knee before the game, De Kock had previously failed to do so.

After the toss, South Africa captain Temba Bavuma claimed that De Kock was unavailable for selection owing to personal reasons. The Black Lives Matter movement seeks to educate and raise awareness about the ways in which racism continues to have a negative impact on black lives around the world.

Broadcasters Pommie Mbangwa and Darren Sammy, who both represent the black community, spoke out on the subject on television.

“Lack of support for the programme fundamentally means a lack of support for people of colour inside the team, in South Africa, and globally. Excuse me if this seems political, but I can’t get rid of my skin “Pommie stated during the remark.

“You’ve got to stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything,” Sammy replied in response to the same occurrences.

De Kock’s decision is confirmed by the CSA

Cricket South Africa has confirmed De Kock’s decision in the most recent update. They have agreed that the wicketkeeper-batsman made himself unavailable because he refused to take a knee in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. Notably, he did not take the knee versus Australia in the team’s first match.

Concerning the current match, South Africa chose to bowl first and has kept the West Indies score in check, but not taking as many wickets in the first half of the innings as they would have hoped. This is a crucial game for both sides because they are coming off losses in their previous encounters.

A loss here would make it two losses in a row for the losing team, making semifinal qualifying very difficult from here.
