Makhaya Ntini raised some eyebrows in a statement when he said that Thami would have been playing for the Proteas had he been white.
Thami countered in the media brinlliantly, and alot of respect to the "old man" :) for his statements.
His words where:
"I played most of my early cricket in the township and obviously Makhaya was my icon"
"He has done very, very well for South African cricket and played for 12 or 13 years. He is a Hero."
"But what he said was quite disturbing, for me personally. I wouldn't know why he said that."
I haven't been involved for eight years, I've come back from the wilderness so to speak, but this set-up at the moment is amazing, it is a great group."
"Makhaya was speaking on behalf of himself, not me. I haven't experienced anything like that. Maybe he has his own reasons for saying that, but I haven't seen or experienced anything different in this set-up."
"The atmosphere has been great and I am very comfortable after all the hard work has been recognised"
