Cape Town - Several of the heroes of the Proteas seven successive victories over Australia in the ODI and Test formats will headline the South African cricket team in their Nelson Mandela Legacy Cup match against the Springboks at Newlands next Thursday.

The match will start at 18:00.

The Proteas have concentrated on T20 specialists such as David Miller, Imran Tahir and Aaron Phangiso with the only uncapped player being wicketkeeper Mangaliso Mosehle who was the Player of the Match in last season’s franchise T20 final.

With the restrictions placed on the run-ups of the quick bowlers in the Proteas squad they are expected to make extensive use of their spin bowling options.

All six franchises have at least one representative in the Proteas line-up.

This is the third edition of this match that honours the country’s founding president and has the aim of raising funds for the Nelson Mandela Foundation.

Fans are encouraged to make their donations to the Nelson Mandela Foundation via a dedicated SMS line on match day.

Tickets prices range from R120 to R180 and can be purchased through or at the Newlands ticket office.

The match will be televised live on SuperSport.

There will be various activities in stadium on match day for fans to get involved and as well as the opportunity to meet some of their cricket and rugby heroes.

Proteas squad:

Hashim Amla (Cape Cobras), Mangaliso Mosehle (Highveld Lions), Faf du Plessis (Titans), JP Duminy (Cape Cobras), David Miller (Knights), Farhaan Behardien (Titans), Wayne Parnell (Cape Cobras), Dwaine Pretorius (Highveld Lions), Aaron Phangiso (Highveld Lions), Imran Tahir (Dolphins), Kyle Abbott (Warriors)
