BIO: The South African national cricket team is administrated by Cricket South Africa. The South African cricket team toured England in 1947. In 1970, the ICC voted to suspend South Africa from international cricket indefinitely because of its government's policy of apartheid, a policy which led them to play only against the white nations (England, Australia, New Zealand), and field only white players. The ICC reinstated South Africa as a Test nation in 1991 after the deconstruction of apartheid. The team played its first sanctioned match since 1970 against India in Calcutta on 10 November 1991. They hosted the International Cricket Council Cricket World Cup in 2003.   South Africa is a full member of the International Cricket Council, with Test and One Day International, or ODI, status. As of 24 February 2013, the South African team has played three hundred and seventy seven Test matches, winning one hundred and thirty seven, losing one hundred and twenty six and drawing one hundred and fourteen of its games. They have also played four hundred and seventy eight ODI Matches, winning two hundred and ninety seven, one hundred and sixty three, drawing five and getting a "No Result" in 13 of its games.
