Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) announced on Thursday that tickets have gone on sale for the 2011/12 domestic and international home series.

“This is going to be another big home summer for the Proteas’ Castle Lager squads as well as for our wonderfully loyal fans,” commented CSA CEO Gerald Majola. “It follows the hugely successful tour we had by India last summer that attracted record crowds.

“Australia has been long-standing opponents of the highest calibre and our matches against them have often produced epic contests. Our success in chasing down a fourth innings total of more than 400 at Perth in 2008 and the famous 438 ODI, universally regarded as the greatest 50 overs contest of all time, spring readily to mind.

“We have not had the pleasure of welcoming Sri Lanka to our shores for a full tour for almost a decade. The fact that they have reached the final of the last two ICC World Cups speaks for itself. They bring their own distinctive richness to our wonderful game which is embodied in the likes of Lasith Malinga and Ajantha Mendis.”

Test captain Graeme Smith commented: “I made my test debut against Australia in 2002 and I learned very quickly from them the toughness required to play international cricket. It was a very quick learning school and it is certainly the way I like to play the game.

“Our last two series against Australia, home and away, produced some enthralling, nerve-wracking and highly entertaining cricket that I believe gripped the imagination not only of South African and Australian fans but those around the world.

“These two home series are the beginning of a process in which we must make sure we qualify for the inaugural ICC World test Championship restricted to the top four sides in 2013. England has currently set the bar as the No 1 ranked side and they have certainly thrown down the gauntlet for us to challenge.”

ODI captain AB de Villiers commented: “It is always an honour and privilege to represent our country, particularly in front of our home fans, whose ongoing support means so much to us.

“On a personal note I am entering a new era of my career and I can’t say enough how much it means to me to be entrusted with the leadership of our country. It is certainly going to be an exciting summer as both Australia and Sri Lanka’s respective records in ODI cricket speak for themselves.

“Cricket never stands still and we will be embracing several dynamic changes to the ODI format playing conditions this season. This will pose new challenges and give the players fresh opportunities to express themselves to the benefit of themselves and their fans and ultimately for the great game we play as well.”
