Faf du Plessis, South Africa's captain, has called for all administrators and stakeholders to put their heads together and shift their focus away from the current crisis and help rebuild South African cricket as they prepare for a home series against England. "Obviously a lot has happened but now it's a new start," du Plessis said. "There's not much time before the English series so now it's about putting our focus back on to the team, making sure that the Test team gets all the things that are required for us to be successful."

The most immediate concerns are the appointment of a selection panel to pick the squad that will face England, who named their touring party on Saturday.
