After the first ball had been bowled the players all walked off and issued a statement to the South African Board of Control and then returned to the field to resule the match. The statement read as follows "We cricketers feel that the time has come for an expression of our views. We fully support the South African Cricket Association's application to invite non-whites to tour Australia, if they are good enough, and further subscribe to merit being the only criterion on the cricket field."
