    Hoping someone can help - 1982 Springboks Squad

    Hi.

    This is my first post here and, looking at the other posts I'm pretty sure I came to the right spot. I've recently come across a cricket bat in my parents home that I won in a raffle back in the early 80's (which I always knew was there but which I had kindof forgotten). It's a Clive Rice bat and is personally signed by the Springbok (South Africa) and the West Indies teams.

    Cross-checking the West Indies signatures against this website South African rebel tours - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I have concluded that the bat was signed by the 1982 Windies side - I have a spreadsheet and have checked off the names (I have 16 confirmed signatures, one unconfirmed signature and then Everton Mattis who's signature I don't think is there).

    I would like to do the same on the South African side but cannot for the life of me find a squad list for the 1982 side.

    If anyone has, or knows where to find the 1982 Springbok Cricket squad list I would be eternally grateful.

    Thanks Guys
    Jason

    Here are the tour results and scorecards, so just click on the scoreboards for the unofficial 'tests' and 'odis', then check the names

    Thanks a heap Fuller... That worked! I have found all names on my bat except for one.

    Now to find someone who can clean the bat without destroying the signatures :-).

    Cheers

    Ha! Yeah, the problem is that I have been looking around Ebay and it's probably worth a total of a few hundred bucks at best. No retirement plan for either of us with that one . I might have to let the kids start using it at matches as it's more expensive to buy a new bat... Oh well, at least it has a story behind it.
