Cricket correspondent Neil Manthorp says his media accreditation tag was confiscated on Sunday when he arrived at Newlands Stadium.

Cricket South Africa (CSA) has admitted to revoking the media accreditation of several journalists who have been critical of the dire state of cricket in the country.

Cricket correspondent Neil Manthorp discovered that his accreditation was pulled when he arrived at Newlands Stadium to cover the Mzansi Super League match on Sunday.

Manthorp is one of five journalists whose accreditation was revoked by the CSA in a move that has been condemned by various interest groups.

Five journalists had their accreditation revoked, I didn't know anything about it until I arrived at Newlands yesterday to commentate.
