Bye bye Duanne. The player drain in SA continues. This is a major major shock. Like Kyle Abbot he probably realised that players like Ngidi, Andile and other players of colour would invariably get the nod ahead of him if he has a couple of bad games. He'd only need to go wicketless in a game and then the spotlight would be back on him.
I think he's made the right move
When in doubt, listen to Oasis chaps....

I think it’s not just about the cricket, South Africa is quickly going down the shitter and as a white personnel I doubt you’d feel very welcome there.

I wonder if CSA will carry on about how they’ve been hard done by again like they did when Abbot and Rissouw left? Or will they finally see what the real effects of the Quota system is doing

They were absolutely furious with Rassouw weren't they. Abbot I got the impression they partially understood, but even i thought the timing from the former was poor, and his comments didn't help

Include Claude Henderson in there in place of one of the fast bowlers and you're on for a winner

That’s just the guys who have gone since the quota system started, 40 South Africans have gone Kolpak with Claude being the first
