We need yet another commission.

Yes, that is the sad reality after the unsurprising defeat to a Mickey Arthur led Pakistan and CWC elimination.

I believe this commission needs to comprise of Jacques Kallis, Ashwin Prince and Makhaya Ntini, modern day Protea legends who will conduct a thorough analysis of SA Cricket and context.

This commission will make harsh findings that stretch beyond the sporting realm. Brutal honesty is what is required now to put CSA on a new course because we have witnessed a catastrophe of our own making.

Those modern day legends will make their own findings but for the cricketing layman like myself, I find it unfathomable that there was no attempt to shore up our batting order a la England when it became obvious that was the primary diagnosis.

I would like to think that a Protea wilts in the English summer but it is definitely not as simple as that and the myriad of problems that presented themselves whether manifestations of a deeper malaise or not need to be analysed and made public so that this does not happen again in four years time.
