Cape Town - Gary Kirsten has announced that Fairtree Capital will be the new partner and headline sponsor for Gary Kirsten Cricket at an event last week.

Former South African opening batsman, Kirsten represented his country in 101 Tests and 185 One Day Internationals, before coaching the Proteas, the Indian national team, while he these days coaches both the Hobart Hurricanes as part of the Australian Big Bash League and the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL.

Gary Kirsten Cricket is committed to the creation of sporting ecosystems and healthy alternatives for township communities by providing quality infrastructure that is safe and accessible to people in the townships.

“I had a vision to develop an internationally recognised cricket academy that would be based at a state-of-the art facility. This vision became a reality when the academy was launched, providing high-performance cricket coaching that not only caters for South African cricketers, but also for cricketers from around the world,” said Kirsten.
