STATEMENT ISSUED BY CEDRIC FROLICK
UDM SPORT SPOKESPERSON
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.
Nation salutes you.
