A bad week just got worse for Cricket SA as its forced to apologise for Tweet
9 days ago
It's been a tough week for Cricket South Africa (CSA).
On Tuesday it was dealt a blow with the announcement that its leading sponsor Momentum will cut ties with the organisation when its current contract comes to an end next year.
Then on Wednesday, it was forced to apologise on behalf of board member Dr Eugenia Kula-Ameyaw who took to Twitter to voice her feelings on the decision.
Cricket writer Stuart Hess says comments like Dr Kula-Ameyaw's have the potential to negatively impact the sporting body in the future.

Hess says the decision by Momentum doesn't bode well for the sport.
