On the back of last year's introduction of international cricket in South Africa in August, Durban - the warmest place to be - is set to host Faf du Plessis' Standard Bank Proteas for their clash with Kane Williamson's Blackcaps from 19-23 August. ?
While the on-field action promises to be red-hot throughout the five day affair, Sunday's third day is set to see the home of the Sunfoil Dolphins become a sea of blue as host Union, KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union (KZNCU) and Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) team up to raise funds and awareness for men's cancer. ?
"Cancer is a very real problem the world over and has touched the lives of so many," says Sunfoil Dolphins Acting CEO, Rajesh Behari. ?
An awareness table will provide information regarding cancer and CANSA's services, receive sign-ups for patient care and support, volunteers, cancer survivors and support groups as well as issue free sunscreen to all patrons. ?
A sprayathon will also take place in the stadium with participants charged a nominal fee to have their hair sprayed decorative colours to show their support of the Proteas while bandanas will also be for sale. ?
A private onsite facility will also offer prostate (PSA) screenings with Women's Health vouchers also being sold here for clinical breast examinations and pap smears. ?
