Proteas cricket fans slam `moron` CSA for `cowardly pandering` to BCCI over India tour

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 03:48 PM

Johannesburg, Oct 31 : South African cricket fans have reportedly slammed the country''s cricket board over the confirmation of the itinerary for India''s shortened tour to South Africa in December.


After negotiations between Cricket South Africa (CSA) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), a three-ODI and two-Test tour was agreed upon and confirmed in a cautiously worded statement on Wednesday.


According to Sport24, Johannesburg and Durban will each host one ODI and a Test, while the third ODI will be played in Centurion, adding that Newlands in Cape Town, one of the best-supported ground in the country, will miss out completely from the tour.


Angry over CSA''s ''bowing'' attitude to the ''bullying'' of the powerful BCCI, fans have slammed BCCI as ''bullies, cowards and criminals'' while calling CSA ''cowardly spineless a**holes''.


Many have adamantly refused to partake in any cricket viewing where India is concerned, while others have called for a boycott of South African cricket over the ''stupidity'' and ''moron-like'' attitude of the CSA in pandering to BCCI''s desires.
