CSA: Transformation must be sustainable

CSA held its Annual General Meeting this weekend where a number of decisions were taken, perhaps most importantly, the setting of official transformation targets for the national men's team.
The targets require the national team to play an average minimum of 54 percent Black players and an average minimum of 18% Black African players over the season.
Nenzani says whatever plans they put in place, need to be sustainable: "It could've been easy for us to be ambitious and say we want 80%, but are we going to be able to sustain this? We want to sustain it continuously.
"In 2015 we set targets in the provincial and franchise setup so that you build a pool to sustain yourself at national level."
The Test starting XI that played in the recent Test against New Zealand contained six players of colour and two Black Africans, while the ODI starting XI had eight players of colour in their most recent series against the West Indies and Australia.
Nenzani says that bodes well for the future: "We want those positive signs to be the norm, not the exception. This is not something new, it's happening in the system.
"The team that we will have on any particular day is going to talk to the nation. We are making sure that we are not going back, instead we're going forward."
