Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) will be seeking clarity to determine where they have failed in their quest to transform. 

This comes after sports ministers Fikile Mbalula on Monday punished the cricket, rugby, netball and athletics bodies in the country for not meeting the required rate of transformation in their sports. 

Mbalula has banned the federations in charge of all of those sports from bidding and hosting major sporting events until the decision is reviewed next year. 

South Africa are not scheduled to host any major tournaments during the current Future Tours Programme (FTP), which runs until the end of June 2019. 

That cycle ends with the next 50-over Cricket World Cup, which will be hosted in England. 

CSA has also not signalled any intention to bid for any other major events. 

"We need to review the contents of the report and understand where Transformation Targets were not met before making any further comments," CSA communications manager Altaaf Kazi told Sport24.
