Cape Town - The South Africa Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) has set Cricket South Africa (CSA) an ultimatum to remove the national flag from the emblem of the national cricket team.

Sascoc president Gideon Sam told Beeld that the King Protea is the "only symbol for national sports teams" and "no other combination is allowed".

Sam said he doesn't care where the flag moves on the Proteas kit, as long as it moves.

"If they don't do it, then we'll act against them," said Sam.

According to Sascoc regulations, CSA could be kicked out as a federation, which would mean that the Proteas won't be allowed to compete internationally.

Sam said they have given CSA time until after the Proteas' current tour of Sri Lanka to sort the issue out.

The Proteas made history over the weekend when they won the ODI series 2-1 against the Sri Lankans - the first one-day series a South African team had ever won in that country.

The two-Test series starts in Galle on Wednesday.
