Cricket South Africa (CSA), on Friday, announced the fixtures for their upcoming 2022-23 home season. South Africa will host England, the West Indies and the Netherlands in the multi-format series.
The summer will start with the three-match One-Day International (ODI) series against England in January-February, with the fixtures part of the World Cup Super League (WCSL). Following this, the West Indies will arrive in the rainbow nation to play two Tests in February-March, part of the last leg of the ongoing second edition of the World Test Championship (WTC). The Caribbeans will then play a three-match bilateral ODI and T20I series in March.
After hosting the Windies in the multi-format leg, South Africa will play against the Netherlands. Both sides will play two ODIs of the unfinished three-match series (part of the Super League) originally scheduled in December 2021 but postponed due to COVID-19.
“CSA is thrilled to be hosting England, West Indies and the Netherlands, all worthy opponents, in what is billed to be an exciting summer of international cricket. This is principally good news to our fans, who have been starved of the blend of cricket on offer at stadiums since the 2020 pandemic. These bumper fixtures confirm that cricket in South Africa is indeed open for business,” said CSA CEO Pholetsi Moseki in a statement.
“As we look forward to hosting these cricketing powerhouses, we invite our fans to swell the stadiums in numbers to support the Proteas as they lock horns with the best in the world,” Moseki added.
