A letter to the Dladla family

Northerns Cricket Union is saddened to hear of the passing of Kwa Zulu Natal Cricket Union President, Ben Dladla.

Dladla was an honest man who loved Cricket and stood firm on matters of principle.

It is a very difficult moment for the cricket fraternity and the Dladla family, we have lost an exceptional leader, mentor, friend, brother and father.

In these difficult times we draw strength from those around us and their support, and we wish the family strength and closure as we remain unified in the memory of Ben Dladla.

As a cricket family and Northerns Cricket Union we have lost a partner, inspiring figure and someone we looked to for guidance; and wish you the deepest condolences during this time of loss.

Rest In Peace Ben.
