Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) has accepted veteran sports journalist Dan Retief for an insensitive tweet he posted on Twitter.

Retief took to social media on Sunday after the Proteas’ series-clinching ODI win over England at Newlands, tweeting:

CSA took strong exception to the tweet, but confirmed that Retief had apologised.
