I’ll be the first to admit that i’m not a massive follower of either cricket or rugby – but i’m obviously fiercely patriotic and will always support our boys in green. No matter the sport!
It hink it’s pretty hilarious/genius that the rugby team is willing to hang its pride up and play a completely different sport against guys who are paid to play for a living. It’s worth mentioning though, that i would pay a significant amount of money to see the cricket team play rugby against the Springboks!
This T20 game – The Nelson Mandela Legacy Cup – is a celebration of Madiba’s legacy the best way South Africans know how…through sport. Something which Madiba was adamant about using to unite our very broken country.
Most of the household names will be there, led by their respective captains: AB and Jean de Villiers. A signing session with selected members of both teams will also take place as well as the popular Hit-a-Six competition.
It takes place on the 5th of December at Bidvest Wanderers. Tickets for the match are available from www.ticketpro.co.za and range from R90-R200. The fun starts at 3pm and the game is at 6.30pm.
