Back the Boys at the 2018 Sunfoil Test Cricket Series

Cricket season is in full swing – catch the Proteas as they clash with Australia in the 2018 Sunfoil Test  Series

Summer means cricket season and what better way to get you into the swing of things (quite literally) than with the Sunfoil Series. To kick things off for the New Year and before provincial teams head to the crease, South Africa will play India for a 5-day Sunfoil Test Match taking place from Friday 5 to Monday 9 January at Newlands.

PROTEAS TO THE RESCUE

Prepare for a day of relaxation as you kick off the New Year with some fine cricket. The Proteas will be out in full force, allowing you the opportunity to sit back and cheer them on their journey to beat rivals India, and then later, Australia too. The test series will be played throughout January so you have ample time to get tickets, they are available from Ticketpro.co.za and range from R80/p to R550/p.

The Sunfoil Series is the domestic cricket series on anyone’s calendar who knows their Shaun Pollock from their Herschelle Gibbs. The Cape Cobras are coached by Ashwill Prince, a former South African cricketer who has played all formats of the game, as well as being a former captain of the Proteas. This season, fans can look forward to seeing the Cape Cobras face Pretoria’s Multiply Titans who are coached by Mark Boucher, as well as the Eastern Cape’s Warriors, KwaZulu-Natal’s Dolphins and more.
