Cape Town - Those spectators who bought tickets to days four and five of the recent Wanderers Test between South Africa and England will be refunded. 

Cricket South Africa (CSA) confirmed to Sport24 on Thursday that 17 260 tickets were sold for Sunday and Monday's last two days on which no cricket took place after the Proteas were skittled for 83 in their second innings, losing the match by seven wickets inside three days. 

12 150 tickets were sold for day four (Sunday) while 5 110 tickets were sold for Monday's final day. 

Spectators will be given full refunds if they follow the processes that will be communicated to them in due course. 

Both CSA and the Gauteng Cricket Board (GCB) will feel the financial burden of the refunding process, but exactly how much money in total will be given back to the public is not clear. 

In addition the GCB also lost out on two days of food and beverage sales at the stadium. 

The biggest crowd of the three-day Test match saw 19 338 people stream through the gates on Saturday to witness South Africa's demise.
