Karachi: Along with the cricketing world, the federation of international cricketers’ associations (FICA) has also expressed great concern over the situation in South Africa.

Talking to this correspondent, the FICA executive chairman Tony Irish said that the situation in South Africa was “very worrying”.

“Extremely poor administration is threatening the survival and sustainability of professional cricket in that country [South Africa]. This is a major concern for the global game”, Irish said.

The cricket website earlier reported that South African cricket had hit rock bottom after the CSA board and the chief executive were instructed to step aside by the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) following nine months of administrative implosion.

“Cricket needs to be put into the hands of people who know how to run the game and who cares about the game as well. At the moment CSA has neither”, the FICA executive chairman lamented.
