Transformation not the cause of Kyle Abbott's resignation - sports journalist

Cricket South Africa (CSA) announced that Proteas fas bowler Kyle Abbott and batsman Rilee Rossouw are leaving the team to play for English team Hampshire Cricket.

Sports journalist, Antoinette Muller, says money and job security are two main reasons for Abbott's resignation.

Muller says transformation was never a problem for Abbott even when he was not selected to play in the national squad.

It's too much of an easy excuse for people who don't know what they are talking about.
