Newlands Cricket Ground has applauded Boeta Cassiem who has been selling ice creams at the ground for the past 55 years.
Cassiem is very popular at the ground for his eccentric comments and is currently working hard at the ongoing Test between South Africa and England at the famous old ground.
Newlands Cricket ground’s official Twitter account read:
“He has been selling ice creams at Newlands for 55 years, Boeta Cassiem we salute you legend.”
Cassiem was featured on the big screen at Newlands over the weekend where it was said that he considered retiring but he changed his mind.
Fans and even a Proteas player also added their positive responses on Twitter.
