JOHANNESBURG: Former South Africa skipper Bacher Ali believes that young black players cannot make it to the country’s cricket if they continue to stay in the township culture.

The 73-year-old called on the black players to opt for one of the traditional cricketing schools in the country in order to reach at the highest level of the game, Sport24 reported.

Bacher, who admitted that his schooling at King Edward School (KES) had helped in laying foundation for his future, asserted that all black players who had been successful in his country went to the traditional cricket schools.

South Africa’s two black stars, fast bowler Kagiso Rabada and batsman Temba Bavuma had gone to traditional private cricket schools in the country.
