Durban - Friday’s double header of international T20 cricket action at Kingsmead - home of the Dolphins - has officially been declared a sell out as cricket enthusiasts the province over scramble to be a part of the action when South Africa take on Australia in the first of three T20 encounters.

‘Sold out’ signs went up as early as Monday morning ahead of the much anticipated encounter with many looking forward to being a part of the electric atmosphere on Friday.

“With the Proteas gearing up for the upcoming ICC World Twenty20 in India, it is great to see Durban and the rest of KZN getting behind our national heroes,” said Dolphins CEO, Pete de Wet.

“We have been treated to a wealth of international cricket at Kingsmead this season, with Durban showing on each occasion just why it is such a great location for international matches.

“We can’t wait to play host to Friday’s exciting encounter between two of the world’s top cricket nations,” he added.

With local lads David Miller, Imran Tahir and Kyle Abbott all part of the Proteas mix, many will be hoping the hometown heroes will be given the opportunity to wow the Durban crowd while global superstars such as AB de Villiers, Dale Steyn, David Warner and Glen Maxwell will bring even more to the mouth-watering mix.

Durbanites are also expected to extend their support of their national teams when the Proteas women take on the West Indies women in a T20 international earlier in the day.

The Proteas’ first of three T20 clashes with Australia takes place at Kingsmead on Friday, March 4 at 18:00 while the Proteas women's match against West Indies women gets underway at 13:15.
