In Durban, a South African lawyer has sued his son’s school cricket coach for R2.1 million, alleging his son was not allowed to become the captain of any age group side till he was in the under-15 category because of his Indian origin. Pranesh Indrajith served legal papers on Dave Karlsen, the coach of the first X1 team at St Charles College, an elite private school, claiming he had deliberately hampered his son’s cricket career.  The son, who is now 17, is not named because of a South African law protecting children aged under 18 years. Indrajith accused Karlsen of being “uncomfortable with an Indian boy as captain.” pti
