Classify the colonial flavour of world cricket during the 1950s and 1960s.
1950s and 1960s was a time when many Asian and African countries had become independent. However many imperialist countries still considered themselves as superior. One of the examples of the colonial temperament of the nations can be seen from the fact that during this period England with other Commonwealth countries was still playing matches with South Africa.
South Africa was a country which was following a policy of apartheid. Apartheid is a policy which is based on the basis of racial discrimination. Test playing nations like India, Pakistan and West Indies were boycotting South Africa but they lacked adequate majority to debar South Africa from test cricket. It was only in late 1970s that South Africa began to be boycotted by England and other white member countries of Commonwealth when political pressure on them to isolate South Africa increased.
