CRICKET SOUTH AFRICA (CSA) today announced a brand new Proteas player milestone program that will recognize players for their achievements across all three formats of the game.

The milestone program is inclusive of both Proteas men and women players and will honour players dating back to the Proteas re-admission into international cricket in 1991.

“With CSA currently celebrating it’s 25-year anniversary, the milestone program has been conceived as an ideal way to highlight the excellent achievements of our men and women national players,” explained CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat.

“Depending on the individual landmark reached, players will receive either a quarter, half or full ounce of gold in the form of specially packaged 25-year anniversary Kruger coin.

“This is a small token of appreciation from CSA and our fans to thank our international cricket heroes for the great memories and excitement provided over the past 25 years. We look forward to establishing this program as a tradition to recognize the contribution of our players,” concluded Lorgat.

The following tables illustrate the various milestones that will be recognised.
