I do agree with what you say Paul. In this article (and in my previous one on racism in cricket) I am trying to encourage a positive approach to change rather than a more apathetic, indifferent or passive approach. That is to say, instigate change rather than hope change will occur.

Could a rescheduled Australia-Afghanistan Test be a positive instrument for change?

Whilst I can’t comment on the logistics of this, this is another positive suggestion to promote change and show support – thank you.

Micko, I’m not across the South Africa selection position and so not qualified to provide you with an informed answer. I abhor all discrimination, which I do see as being distinct from the idea of quotas (used to help where people are disadvantaged).
You will be aware that most of Africa was carved up by the colonial powers and not within tribal boundaries, thus creating ethnic conflict that became more apparent when those powers left. Migration (be it on economic or conflict grounds) will have exasperated the situation.

Thanks for your feedback Targa.

There’s an ABC article which reports that it was an Auckland man that was the guilty party in the Archer incident:

It doesn’t advise who he supported, though I guess we know it was not Archer!

Get up, stand up and let's fight against racism in cricket
