New Proteas T20 Jersey 2020-2021 | South Africa T20 Kit 20-21 New Balance

Here is the new Proteas T20 jersey, the uniform for the South African national T20 team for the 2020/21 cricket season. The new kit, made by technical partners New Balance, was officially released on August 13, 2020.

The Proteas haven’t played cricket for a while due to the Coronavirus pandemic- they toured India in March but left without playing a game, and the next one to the Windies, scheduled for last month, was cancelled. Some key South African cricketers were involved in a special 3TC game on Mandela Day, won by AB de Villiers’ Eagles side.

As is the case with T20 shirts, New Balance have experimented a bit with the jersey. It also carries the words “Protea Fire” inside the neck of the shirt, as can be seen in the pics below.

Six Talking Points- Eagles vs Kites vs Kingfishers- 3TC Solidarity Cup 2020 Mandela Day

AB’s Eagles won the inaugural 3TC Solidarity Cup by beating Quinny’s Kites and KG’s Kingfishers at Supersport Park on Mandela Day.

Here are our talking points from the game.

1.Glenton Stuurman the find of the game

The ball of the day came from young pacer Glenton Stuurman, who sent Rassie van der Dussen’s stumps flying. Stuurman built up some good pace and proved difficult for the batsmen to get away. A player we definitely hope to see more of in the near future.

2.Dropped catches give De Villiers lifeline

De Villiers scored a fine 61 (24) on his return to cricket in the Republic, but was given a lifeline twice in his innings. He was dropped by keeper Heinrich Klaassen off the bowling of Tabraiz Shamsi on 1, and Thando Ntini then dropped a return catch when the Eagles captain was on 8. You don’t give a batsman like De Villiers one chance, much less two, and he made his opponents pay for the drops.
