CSA announces Home International 2013/14 fixtures - Cricket News
A competitive home season awaits the Proteas, beginning with Test series against India and Australia.
Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Monday announced a bumper programme of home international matches for the 2013/14 season against India and Australia.
 
The world-leading Test squad will play three Sunfoil Test matches each against both countries while the Proteas Castle Lager ODI squad will play seven ODIs against India and the T20 squad will play two T20 International matches against India and three against Australia.
 
The India tour starts on 18 November and concludes with the third Test match at the Wanderers Stadium from 15 to 19 January. Australia start their tour on 5 February and conclude with the final T20 International match at SuperSport Park on 14 March. Both teams will then fly direct to Bangladesh for the ICC World Twenty20 2014. The preliminary round starts on 16 March and the main competition on 23 March.
 
“It promises to be a wonderful summer of hotly contested international cricket,” commented CSA Acting CEO Naasei Appiah. “India are the current undisputed champions of 50 overs cricket and it was not that long ago that they briefly held the No. 1 ranking in Test cricket as well. The Indian players have always been very popular in South Africa and their maestro, Sachin Tendulkar, has currently played 198 Test matches. It would be wonderful for his 200th Test match to be in front of a packed New Year’s crowd at Newlands.
 
“The last time he played a Test match there his battle with Dale Steyn thrilled a global audience.
 
“Any series between Australia and South Africa in any sporting code always promises a spectacle of note and a contest worthy of some of sport’s most famous moments. Australia will be battle-hardened after successive home and away Ashes series against England.
 
“The three T20 International matches at the end of the tour will provide perfect preparation for both sides for next year’s ICC World Twenty20.”
 
Ticket sales details will be announced in due course.
