Cricket South Africa has announced a bumper programme of home international fixtures for the 2019-20 summer against England and Australia.
England will be the guests for the first part of the summer, from mid-December until mid-February, and will play four Test matches, three One-Day Internationals and three KFC T20 International matches.
Centurion has been granted another Boxing Day Test, with St George’s Park sandwiched in between Newlands and Wanderers.
Australia will arrive in mid-February to play three KFC T20 International matches, followed by three One-Day Internationals in Paarl, Bloemfontein and Potchefstroom.
‘This will be a huge summer, both for the Proteas, who are currently ranked in the top three in all three formats, and for the fans who can look forward to top-quality entertainment against two of the powerhouses of world cricket,’ commented CSA chief executive Thabang Moroe.
‘The Test matches will take on particular significance, as this will be our first home series in the ICC World Test Championship following our away series in India in October. I am delighted also to announce that we will be working closely with SA Tourism around the Test host venues of Pretoria, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Johannesburg to ensure that this series creates a win-win situation both for cricket and the South African economy.
‘The two KFC T20 International Series take on extra relevance as we start our preparation for the ICC Men’s World T20 to be played in Australia in October and November next year.
‘The Pink One-Day International against England at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium will once again be a highlight of our ODI Series.
Our fans now have the opportunity to make their holiday plans in good time so that they can watch the Proteas in action in their favourite formats,’ concluded Moroe.
