The Proteas’ 2023 ODI World Cup shirt features a new sponsor on the leading sleeve.
Amul, India’s largest fast-moving consumer goods brand, has become the Proteas’ first shirt sponsor since Standard Bank opted not to renew its title sponsorship deal in April 2020 due to Cricket South Africa’s (CSA) boardroom battles.
CSA is reportedly set to earn $3m (about R56m) from the Amul deal.
