First T20I sold out


Tickets for South Africa’s 1st T20 International against Sri Lanka at SuperSport Park on Friday were sold out, two days ahead of the match. 

Sri Lanka’s visit to SuperSport Park will be their first T20 International encounter against the Proteas on South African soil.

The last 20-over encounter at SuperSport Park saw the Titans successfully defend their domestic T20 title with a dramatic win over the Warriors, with new Protea squad member Lungi Ngidi taking two match-winning wickets.

Jacques Faul, SuperSport Park CEO, said: “To have secured a sellout demonstrates the passion of the people of Tshwane for cricket and the SuperSport Park experience.

“Over the years the stadium has captured the family essence of cricket through its vibrant atmosphere.

“After successfully hosting last month’s CSA T20 Challenge Final, we are now looking forward to an exhibition of international cricket on Friday night.

“We encourage anyone wishing to attend the fifth Momentum One-Day International between South Africa and Sri Lanka on 10 February to purchase their tickets well in advance to avoid disappointment.”

The 1st KFC T20 International gets underway at 18:00, following a curtain-raiser between the Proteas and the KFC Mini-Cricket Kids from Fleur Primary School at 15h30.
