I asked Dean Elgar (Protea Test player) :dance: to take the bat with him to the Newlands test. He did see to it that all the players, Gary Kirsten and Allin Donald, sign the bat. The bat is Dillon du Preez's bat. After facing Dale Steyn in a domestic game, he noticed that the bat had a big dent at the bottom. So he donated it for the signatures. As you can see the bat even have a bit of history to it. :D :D

Jaco,

Again I would like to thank you for all the effort you have put in to make this available. As you said the history regarding the bat makes it a huge collectors item.

Thanks so much :clap: :clap:

SJ, thank you soooo much for your trouble and initiative. :gflower:

My son was at school with Dean Elgar for his first two years. I remember watching these little cricketers getting their first lessons from the head master on how to hold a cricket bat.

I kept getting feedback on Dean's determination and talent. I watched him score his first international 100 with tears of joy.
