In honour of anti-apartheid icon Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who died on Sunday, the South African and Indian teams held a moment of silence before the first Test. As a symbol of respect, the South African players wore black armbands into the stadium. “The Proteas cricket team, as well as the entire country of South Africa, grieve the death of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, a world-renowned statesman who passed away this morning.”

“Before the start of the inaugural Betway Test match against India, the teams observed a moment of silence. In honour of Mr Tutu, the Proteas are donning black armbands,” the Indian team’s media wing remarked.

Tutu, the retired Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town and a Nobel Peace Prize winner for racial justice and LGBT rights, died at the age of 90. Tutu had been in and out of hospitals since 1997 when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer.
