International cricket in 1994–95

The 1994–1995 international cricket season was from September 1994 to April 1995.

New Zealand cricket team in South Africa in 1994–95

The New Zealand national cricket team toured South Africa from November 1994 to January 1995 and played a three-match Test series against the South Africa national cricket team. The tour was the third time that New Zealand had visited South Africa and their first tour to the country since the end of the apartheid regime which had led to a sporting boycott of South Africa. South Africa won the Test series 2–1, despite New Zealand having won the first match of the series - the first time that a side had lost a three-match series after having led since 1888 when Australia had lost against England. New Zealand also competed in the Mandela Trophy with South Africa, Sri Lanka and Pakistan but were eliminated in the group stage, not winning any of their matches.The tour saw the New Zealand team in "disarray" and criticised for their lack of discipline on the field. Four players were later suspended as a result of their off-field behaviour during the tour, three for smoking cannabis, and the New Zealand captain, Ken Rutherford, was twice sanctioned by the ICC match referee Peter Burge. Rutherford was sacked later in the season following a domestic season which "degenerated into a series of traumas" and the tour manager, Mike Sandlant, and coach Geoff Howarth both left their posts as a result of their handling of the team during the tour. The tour has been called the "Sex, Drugs and Rock 'n Roll" and is considered to have had a major influence on the ways in which New Zealand Cricket administered the international side for years ahead.The tour immediately followed New Zealand's involvement in the Wills World Series in India in October 1994, the majority of the team travelling directly from India to South Africa. New Zealand did not win any of their four matches during the series.The organisation of the Test series by the United Cricket Board of South Africa was praised by Wisden. Over 150,000 spectators watched the three matches, the Board putting in place a system of reducing ticket prices throughout each day in order to attract more spectators. The policy was successful and the number of younger people who attended matches was picked out by the Almanack as a particular success. Developments to the TV umpire system which had been introduced during Australia's tour the previous summer and both countries agreeing to a minimum of 90 overs per day were also credited by Wisden.
