MEDIA RELEASE


WELL DONE! SA CRICKET TEAM

MEDIA STATEMENT ISSUED BY CEDRIC FROLICK
UDM SPORT SPOKESPERSON

The UDM congratulates the South African cricket team on their morale-boosting victory over Australia. The magnitude of this victory, especially in the light of the controversy of the past few days involving Hansie Cronjé, should be appreciated as such.

Our cricketers have once again shown that not only are we one of the best teams in the world, but they possess the pride and passion to represent our country.

The new captain, Shaun Pollock, and the management of the team deserve recognition for effectively preparing and focussing an outstanding team of professionals under adverse circumstances.

The performance of the team confirms that the United Cricket Board under the guidance of Dr. Ali Bacher is succeeding in the transformation process in cricket and is ready to deal with any form of crisis which could arise in making cricket the peoples' sport.

The Nation salutes you.
