Majola said: “First up, CSA would like to thank both President Zuma and the public for making Sunday’s match at Moses Mabhida Stadium such a spectacular success, heralding a new era for South African cricket and adding much value to the nation’s tourism profile.

“President Zuma’s suggestion for an annual event of this kind at this great stadium is an excellent one. CSA’s home international tours are governed by the International Cricket Council’s future tours programme and so we would have to have a close look at how we can repeat Sunday’s experience as an extra tour match in the future. We would also need the ICC’s permission to hold an extra match with international status, as happened for Sunday’s contest between South Africa and India.

“CSA would also need the co-operation of the Department of Arts and Culture, the Department of Sport and Recreation and the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund Agency to make the event an annual one.

“The event was such a resounding success that CSA is confident that it can persuade all stakeholders to consider President Zuma’s suggestion most favourably.

“Once again, we thank him for his patronage and look forward to working with the Presidency in the future again on similar projects.”
