Cricket South Africa’s (CSA) decision to suspend their supportive relationship with Zimbabwean cricket has been a long time coming. No longer can Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) take part in domestic competitions, send students to the Academy or rely on CSA to watch their back.

Politics is about whether you vote Labour or Liberal, ANC or IFP, Republican or Democrat, MDC or (heaven forfend) Zanu-PF. It is about the eternal debate between right, left and centre.
