In 1968 Basil D'Oliveira, a brilliant 'Coloured' cricketer from South Africa who had made his home in the UK, found himself at the centre of a row that rocked the English political and sporting establishment.
This Foundations goal is to honour this great mans part in not only his exceptional cricketing skills, but how he was instrumental in the role that cricketing played in the bringing about the fall of Apartheid in South Africa.
