South African cricket was plunged back into crisis on Sunday when the country's sports minister said he had "no option" other than to become directly involved in Cricket South Africa's (CSA) affairs.

This could result in the withdrawing of government recognition of CSA and jeopardise South Africa's standing in the International Cricket Council.

Minister Nathi Mthethwa said in a statement that CSA's members' council had acted in bad faith in failing to agree to a new governance structure for cricket administration.
