Nov 10th Down the years Welcome back to South Africa

South Africa return to international cricket in 1991

It was an emotional return to global cricket for the Proteas, who performed their first match in 21 years, following the cricket team’s suspension due to the South African govt’s apartheid coverage.

The suit, which was also South Africa’s first appearance in ODIs, took position on the Eden Gardens in Calcutta. Eleven gamers were making their debut in this sport – it included ten South African players (Kepler Wessels had already played an ODI for Australia). Put in to bat, South Africa might most effective control a whole of 177/eight with Wessels (50) and Adrian Kuiper prime-scoring. Allan Donald then ripped via the Indian top-order and even finished with a 5-wicket haul. However, that was once now not enough for South Africa as Sachin Tendulkar scored a great sixty two while Pravin Amre hit 55 on debut earlier than Manoj Prabhakar helped the hosts past the line. Tendulkar and Donald had been collectively named the mom.
