South African team in their newly designed Jersey :- The Proteas under the leadership of AB De Villiers have got all their eyes on the glittering Champions Trophy and will be dreaming to hold it in their hands and kiss it on 18 June at The Oval.
ICC tournaments and South Africa have not gone hand in hand as the inaugural Champions Trophy in 1998 is the only trophy they have in their cabinet.
Ahead of Champions Trophy 2017, they have got a new ODI kit from New Balance. They would be hoping the change in kit brings change in their fortunes.

Some fans were given chance to show why they were the ultimate Protea fans and after New Balance was convinced 11 of such fans were gifted a replica kit which were delivered to their homes personally by cricketers including Dale Steyn, Temba Bavuma, Tabraiz Shamsi etc.
