There’s an atmosphere building at the Wanderers ahead of the start of the Nelson Manadela Legacy Cup match between the Proteas and the Springboks this evening.

UPDATE: Nelson Mandela Legacy Cup – first innings


 

 With the grass embankment and the wooden stand in particular filling up nicely, Protea skipper Hashim Amla elected to bat after winning the toss.

The match, which is being played to commemorate a year since the passing of iconic leader Nelson Mandela, bring together two sporting codes for an evening of entertainment and camaraderie between two of South Africa’s national sides.

A quick survey of the crowd filing into the Wanderers revealed that there’s a slight preference for Protea jerseys as opposed to the green and gold of the Springboks but ultimately there’s one national flag.
