Proteas to donate match fees

2011-10-13 00:00

CAPE TOWN — The Proteas team will donate their match fees from the first MAD T20 International against Australia to the Make a Difference (MAD) charity.

This was announced by stand-in captain Hashim Amla at a press conference in Cape Town yesterday, ahead of the opening encounter of the two-match series at Sahara Park Newlands today.

Amla said, “The Protea players have decided to donate their match fees for Thursday’s match to the Make a Difference Foundation …”

Amla’s announcement came after Cricket SA granted MAD naming rights to the T20 International Series, at no cost, in a bid to raise awareness for the foundation’s work in promoting educational opportunities among the youth.
