CSA reveal Proteas' fixtures

Cape Town - Cricket South Africa on Friday announced a bumper programme of international matches in all three formats of the game against Australia and Sri Lanka for the 2011/12 summer season.

Australia will play two Test matches, three ODIs and two T20 International matches in October and November while Sri Lanka will tour during the holiday season of December and January for three Test matches and five ODIs.

The Proteas complete their summer with a tour to New Zealand.

“Any series between Australia and the Proteas is always something to be savoured,” commented CSA CEO Gerald Majola, “and fans can look forward to a repeat of the excitement, quality and entertainment that we witnessed the last time the teams met in head-to-head series in the 2008-09 season.

“There were stunning bowling performances from Dale Steyn and Mitchell Johnson, JP Duminy’s remarkable entry into Test match cricket and outstanding batting from the likes of Ricky Ponting and AB de Villiers.

“Australia is currently the No. 1 ranked team in the world in ODI cricket and their Test team is also highly competitive.

“Unfortunately time constraints prevent us from playing more than two Tests against Australia this time around. In this regard I would like to stress that Test cricket remains in our view the ultimate pinnacle of the game. There is room for all three formats and they complement one another in an outstanding overall package.

“The aim is to play a four-match Test series when Australia next tour in February and March of 2014. This will make up for the extra Test not being played on this year’s tour.

“Sri Lanka will come to South Africa for a full tour for the first time since 2002. They reached the final of the last two ICC World Cups which speaks for itself about the quality of their side.

“Over the years they have brought a rich diversity to the game in addition to producing outstanding cricketers and we all look forward to seeing the likes of Lasith Malinga, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kumar Sangakkara and Ajantha Mendis in action.”

Ticket sales for both the Australia and Sri Lanka Series open countrywide at 09:00 on September 1, 2011. Prices will be announced in due course.
