09 Sep CSA SENDS CONDOLENCES TO ECB FOLLOWING PASSING OF HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN
JOHANNESBURG – Cricket South Africa (CSA) joins the global community in mourning the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II aged 96.
The longest reigning monarch in British history was an avid sport enthusiast and an ardent cricket fan. She had occasion to meet with some of the Proteas players over the years.
Queen Elizabeth II was an iconic figure who always inspired hope and resilience. The celebrations earlier this year of her Platinum Jubilee marked 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, Realms and the Commonwealth.
CSA send its sincerest condolences and sympathies to the England and Wales Cricket Board.
As a mark of respect for the Queen’s passing, no play in the deciding third Test between England and South Africa will take place on what was meant to be the second day of the Test. Further announcements regarding the Test will be made in due course.
