Both the boards have gone ahead and named the Test series between the two countries as the ‘Freedom Trophy.’
“The struggle for freedom has been the common thread between our countries. Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela liberated our nations with non-violence and non-co-operation as their weapons which have inspired the world, to adopt and achieve their goals in a peaceful manner. We dedicate this trophy to Mahatma and Madiba, the guiding souls of our nations.” BCCI President, Mr. Jagmohan Dalmiya was quoted as saying.
South Africa are scheduled to tour India from October 2 onwards and will play 3 T20Is, 5 ODIs and 4 Test matches during the tour.
