Monday - the 26th day of Cricket South Africa's (CSA) Social Justice and Nation-Building (SJN) hearings - represented the first day of two weeks of rebuttals.

It featured Free State Cricket and KwaZulu-Natal Cricket CEOs, Johan van Heerden and Heinrich Strydom, with the latter admitting that he didn't effectively deal with an assault matter involving Ayavuya Myoli.

Van Heerden spent most of his testimony rebutting claims by former Proteas spinners Thandi Tshabalala and Eddie Leie that there was sub-standard accommodation in place for black academy cricketers. Legal assistants Fumisa Ngqele and Sandile July battled to hide their incredulity at how casual Van Heerden was when he explained the conditions.
