The Basil D'Oliveira Trophy is a trophy played for by England and South Africa in the sport of cricket. The trophy is awarded to the team that wins a Test series between the two nations. If the series is a draw, the holder keeps the trophy. It was first contested in the 2004-05 series played in South Africa.
The trophy is named for Basil D'Oliveira, a South African born English Test cricketer whose inclusion in the English squad to tour South Africa in 1968-69 led to the cancellation of the tour following objections from South African authorities due to D'Oliveira's classification as "coloured".
