Cricket South Africa have announced the Proteas’ fixtures for their tour of England next year.

The Proteas will enjoy a full tour that will include three One-Day Internationals (ODIs), three T20 Internationals and Test matches from 19 July to 12 September 2022.

Riverside, Old Trafford and Headingley will play host to the ODI series, Bristol, Sophia Gardens and the Ageas Bowl will host the T20 series, while the Test series will be played at Lord’s, Edgbaston and The Oval.

“It’s exciting to have finalised the England tour,” said director of cricket at CSA Graeme Smith.

“Competitive cricket for our national teams is vital for their growth and progress and a tour of England is one of the bigger challenges that our players will face, particularly with their fully (Covid 19) vaccinated crowds backing the home team.

“We have a bumper season ahead for the men’s team that we are thrilled to be announcing soon, with some really exciting match ups, along with another ICC T20 World Cup in the mix.

“Game time is going to be crucial for the ultimate success of this team as they also begin a new season of the ICC World Test Championship and continue the road to the 2023 ICC World Cup through the ICC Men’s World Cup Super League.”
