[South Africa], May 24 (ANI): Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Friday announced the fixtures for the team's home international fixtures for the 2019/20 summer against England and Australia. As per the schedule, Centurion will host the Boxing Day Test match between South Africa and England (Dec 26-Dec 30).
England will tour South Africa first and they will play four Test matches, three ODIs, and three T20Is from mid-December to mid-February.
Australia will arrive in mid-February to take part in three T20Is followed by three ODIs against South Africa.
"This will be a huge summer both for our Proteas, who are currently ranked in the top three in all three formats, and for our fans who can look forward to action-packed and top-quality entertainment against two of the powerhouses of world cricket," sport24 quoted CSA Chief Executive Thabang Moroe as saying.
"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 takes on extra relevance as we start our preparation for the ICC World T20 to be played in Australia in October and November next year," he added.
