Cricket South Africa (CSA) has taken heed the call by President Cyril Ramaphosa to act against the scourge of violence against women and children in the country by launching the Black Day One-Day International in Durban.
The cause-driven Black Day ODI game is set for Saturday, 23 January, 2021 at Kingsmead and will see the Proteas women, donned in their black kit, take on Pakistan women.
The Black Day ODI will be the very first for the Proteas women and the team aims for it to be the catalyst in the fight against GBV in South Africa.
CSA, along with Hilton Moreeng’s charges, have taken the lead in creating an event draws attention to these injustices that depletes the very fabric of our society.
“The Black Day ODI is one event in our calendar that will allow us as a federation and the Proteas women’s players to become servants of the community,” says CSA Acting Chief Executive Pholetsi Moseki.
“This is an opportunity for us to raise awareness and encourage our society to be intolerant of all forms of violence against women and girls. The Black Day ODI is an opportune platform to galvanise, educate, mobilise, create awareness, and agitate towards the eradication of GBV.” concluded Moseki.
