Received with open arms 13 January 2011 Many dignitaries were in attendance too, including President Jacob Zuma, who has suggested that an international cricket fixture should become an annual event at the stadium. Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium, with its iconic arch, painted a spectacular picture during the 2010 Fifa World Cup. More recently, the venue showed that it’s not just a one-sport wonder when the South African and Indian cricket teams met there in a Twenty20 international. His suggestion has been received with open arms by Cricket South Africa (CSA). On Wednesday, CSA CEO Gerald Majola said Zuma’s call for an annual event at the stadium was an excellent one. “First up, CSA would like to thank both President Zuma and the public for making Sunday’s match at Moses Mabhida Stadium such a spectacular success, heralding a new era for South African cricket and adding much value to the nation’s tourism profile,” Majola said. “We would also need the ICC’s permission to hold an extra match with international status, as happened for Sunday’s contest between South Africa and India.”center_img “Therefore, we [CSA] would have to have a close look at how we can repeat Sunday’s experience as an extra tour match in the future.

The Department of Sport and Recreation, Arts and Culture and the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund Agency would also have to join forces with CSA to make the event an annual one.
