Suné Luus: “It Validates All the Hard Work Throughout the Years”

Momentum Proteas captain Suné Luus shared her excitement, as the team was honoured in a special gathering organized by the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture in Melrose, Johannesburg on Tuesday, 28 March 2023.

The ICC Women’s T20 World Cup runners-up were awarded a cash prize of R7,5 million, along with medals for their outstanding efforts throughout the global showpiece.

To add to the incentive, the Sports Ministry further amplified their intentions to develop women’s cricket, granting Cricket South Africa R15 million towards the growth of the women’s game.

Speaking at the event, Luus said: “It’s absolutely great to be here and to be recognized for something that we love to do, and just to represent our country. All the girls here woke up one day and decided that cricket is their dream, and they wanted to pursue it – and these are the moments that we live for.

“Being a young girl, dreaming of being in a World Cup final – a home World Cup final – I don’t think that we ever thought that would be possible. So, thank you to Cricket South Africa, to SASCOC, Momentum, to each and every person, and the Department for making this possible for us,” she added.

“Just to get the incentive from the Deputy Minister, I think it just validates all the hard work throughout the years and I know each and every person who has been on this journey with us is truly grateful. And, I hope that even with the incentive (to CSA) will be put to good use and be put to the development of women’s cricket in South Africa and get us to more World Cups.”
