The 2019/20 season marks the beginning of the ICC’s brand new World Test Championship. The Proteas play their first series in the championship away against India in October and then welcome England.

“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 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 Mr. Moroe.
