Congratulatory message from President Nelson Mandela to Hansie Cronje and the South African Cricket Team on winning the test series in Pakistan and the Jubilee Quadrangular Tournament

9 November 1997

Dear Hansie,

Congratulations to you and your team on having completed a successful tour of the subcontinent.

We watched with admiration as you won the Test series against Pakistan and came through undefeated in the Jubilee Quadrangular Tournament to a stunning victory.

We would also ask you to extend our congratulations to the Pakistani Cricket Board for having mounted such a successful sporting commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of Pakistan's independence.

You and the team have done South Africa proud!

Groete en beste wense!
