South Africa remove captain David Teeger a week before U19 World Cup in wake of potential protests, violence

South Africa in precautionary move, have removed captain David Teeger from his post, a week before the start of the Under-19 World Cup in the wake of the threat of potential protests and violence in relation to the 18-year-old’s pro-Israel speech last year. Teeger, a Jewish, dedicated his Rising Star Award to Israeli soldiers amid the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict. Since then, Teeger’s stand has not been received well and the signs of it were on display outside the Newlands in Cape Town during the second South Africa-India Test in Cape Town.
