International cricket returned to South Africa following decades of boycott due to apartheid. The Indian team, in 1992-93, became the first recognised non-white national side to tour South Africa.
The tour – labelled the Friendship Series – was South Africa’s way of reciprocating India’s efforts in ending the country’s sporting isolation in 1991. It was no surprise that Durban, with its large diaspora and ties with the motherland, put on a huge reception and staged the first Test.
