Johannesburg - The Proteas have distanced themselves from boardroom issues between CSA and the International Cricket Council (ICC), Test captain Graeme Smith has said in Johannesburg on Monday.

The ICC said it had received unanimous support from members, including CSA.

CSA, however, later said the unanimous support was subject to approval, following a board meeting on Sunday.

"We've got to find it in ourselves to trust the administrators that they're going to make decisions in the best interests of the game.

On that occasion, CSA and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) clashed on the scheduling of the tour.

"We've found ways to be successful and not get caught up in those things.

"Our motivation in doing well is always very high.

"One of our great abilities has been to be humble and focus on ourselves and get ourselves ready.

"Internal strength is important, and we don't really feel the need to get caught up in that sort of stuff.

"We know that this series is going to be decided by the cricket that's played over the 15 days."
