Books damage South African unity

If I was an England administrator I would be looking at the wording of central contracts in an attempt to stop books coming out while players or coaches are involved with the national team, unless they are approved by the ECB. And ideally that requirement to get ECB approval would exist a couple of years past when they end their contract.

South Africa seem to be suffering from two books that are imminent or out already. Mickey Arthur is suggesting that when Makhaya Ntini was dropped from the ODI team he immediately claimed racism and had to be reinstated. And Herschelle Gibbs is claiming that Graeme Smith has too much hold over the national team and that they live a debauched lifestyle of womanizing and boozing. Not ideal!
