THE SUNFOIL FREEDOM SERIES
Watch what the Sunfoil Freedom Series means to Virat Kohli, Faf Du Plessis and their two nations. Witness the making of a ceremonial podium that keeps the trophy behind 22 bars until the victorious captain releases it. #StandingForFreedom #SAvIND #FreedomSeries
Only a few nations have demonstrated an indomitable will to overthrow their oppressors through nonviolent resistance. South Africa and India are two such nations. Their leaders and their people showed the will, the infinite patience and the character to stand up to the test and win freedom.
To honour these two nations and what they stood for, the Test series between South Africa and India will forever be named, The Freedom Series. Only time, tenacity and bravery will tell who will lift the Trophy. A ceremonial stand has been crafted to symbolically tell the country’s shared story. For the duration of the series, the trophy will sit behind 22 bars, representing the two teams on the field. Only the winning captain will get to release the trophy.
