Cricket South Africa (CSA) has announced a busy international programme of home international fixtures for the 2020/21 season against England, Sri Lanka, Australia and Pakistan – all for crucial points in either the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League (CWCSL) or the ICC World Test Championship (WTC).
The international season begins with a three-match, T20 International series and three-match, One-Day International (ODI) series against England in Cape Town and Paarl.
Sri Lanka follows with a two-match Test series in Centurion and Johannesburg. The fixtures will fall into the traditional Boxing Day and New Year’s Test match windows.
Australia arrive in February 2021 for a three-match Test series ending in March, with Pakistan rounding off the South African summer of cricket with a three-match ODI series and a three-match T20 International series in April 2021.
Complete fixtures for these tours will be announced in due course.
CSA has also confirmed the appointment of a delegation that will perform a security assessment on the feasibility of the Proteas embarking on their first tour to Pakistan since 2007. The delegates are earmarked to depart this weekend and will report back on their findings for the tour which is scheduled for early 2021.
“We are delighted to announce the schedule of men’s international cricket for the home season,” commented CSA Acting CEO, Kugandrie Govender.
