This year marks the 50th anniversary of the events that marked the beginning of South Africa's isolation from the cricketing world, when Basil D'Oliveira dominated the headlines and the politicians took centre stage. We will look back at the timeline as it unfolded.
50th Anniversary of D’Oliveira Affair
Timeline Story As it Unfolds - Latest
June 16 D'Oliveira is named in the 13-man squad for the second Test but the   Times  warns he might be left out to allow for an extra bowler. June 11   England lose by 159 runs but D'Oliveira makes an unbeaten 87, batting with an “ease which discredited some of England's earlier efforts”. May 31 D'Oliveira is named in a 14-man squad for the first Test against Australia.
“Dolly” will be given the award after a proposal by Mayor of Worcester Jabba Riaz was approved at an extraordinary city council meeting. It will be presented to his family at a Civic Reception in September and his name will be inscribed on the Honorary Freeman Panel in the Guildhall.
Councillors voted unanimously in favour of awarding Basil The Freedom of the City of Worcester. The honour was put forward by the city's mayor.
