AB de Villiers slammed a 64 off 48 balls as South Africa clinched the ODI series versus New Zealand. The Proteas were boosted by their rugby team embarking on its World Cup campaign.
The South African cricket team, also known as The “Proteas”, is administrated by Cricket South Africa. South Africa is a full member of the International Cricket Council with Test and one-day international status. Cricket in South Africa was established by the British, and the first tour by a side from England took place in 1888-89. South Africa played its first Test match (against a touring England side at Port Elizabeth), becoming the third Test nation.
