Maybe because cricket was for decades the embodiment of a racist colonial regime?
And the longer you let that bitterness embody you, the more you will never progress.

If Mandela could do it, why can we not follow suit. Cricket is now a majority black sport, ruled by blacks. How much longer are they going to live in the colonial past.
I don't disagree with what you say as you can see from the rest of my post.

My post was not personally directed at you. It was a general response to the idea of sports that held colonial ties.

Like, yes cricket, and pretty much every sport, has colonial ties. That does not mean you destroy it out of spite.

See the full picture, I understand better than anyone.

Cricket, a game, a hobby, a pastime, is played by people who invented it and created it ands theres nothing wrong with that. Its not racist. Leave them the f*ck alone.

If some black people view the sport as a colonial symbol, and they dont like the colonial past (remember, alot of black people do), then dont play it? Dont enrol your kids.

The rest are more than welcome to play.

Its as ridiculous as people saying the German Stein is a symbol of nazism and ownership of the factories should go to Syrian refugees.
