“What remained key in the ticket pricing was feedback from the general public,” said Cricket South Africa’s chief executive Thabang Moroe. “We want to keep the fans coming through to our cricket stadiums around the country and to maintain the momentum of a sold-out final, like last year.”Thabang Moroe
