Yeah, they removed the Boxing day test in South Africa. Thats an unfortuate fact that their board chose to do that. However its also fact that they copped so much backlash from the cricketing public that only TWO DAYS LATER they announced that the T20 would only be a one off and they'd go back to having a test match on Boxing day. T20 may be king in India but its not even close in the countries that matter in world cricket.
According to CSA, all thhe tickets reserved for the public were sold out. It is as official as it gets.
And, regarding the Boxing Day tests, all that CSA said was that they would TRY to bring back the tests. But seeing the success of Boxing Day T20, I doubt they would actually say it. Also, the guy who made the statement is not even thinking of becoming the President of CSA. At the end of the day, it was just a statement and nothing else.
