DURBAN — Spectators are flocking to Test match cricket this summer to see the world’s number one and two-ranked Test teams battle it out during the three-match Castle Test series.

Over 50 000 tickets have been sold for the Boxing Day Test match at Kingsmead in Durban, as fans rush to be part of the action.

Cricket South Africa (CSA) CEO Gerald Majola said: “Test match cricket is the purest form of the game and CSA is delighted at the response from cricket fans. The first Castle Test match was a brilliant advert for Test cricket and we look forward to another enthralling encounter in Durban.”
