CSA CEO Thabang Moroe also voiced his excitement: "I would like to thank the Board of England whose players and team management have wholeheartedly supported the spirit of our Pink Day ODIs.

"They gave us similar support when they played in the memorable match in 2016 when Joe Root scored a century for England before the Proteas got home by one wicket in a thrilling finish. This is truly what sport can do."
