In the latest episodes of Eusebius on TimesLIVE, our host Eusebius McKaiser is joined by Cricket SA (CSA) board chairperson Lawson Naidoo.

During the controversial conversations Naidoo tries to explain CSA’s decision to make it compulsory for the Proteas to take a knee before their matches in a show of antiracism solidarity.

Naidoo also confirmed this new policy directive had been taken without consulting the players.
