Cape Town - The Proteas will play five One-Day Internationals against Australia in November as part of their build-up to the 2015 Cricket World Cup to be hosted jointly by Australia and New Zealand.

The Proteas will also be playing three T20 International matches.

This tour follows directly after a three-match ODI series in New Zealand and will effectively be one tour for the Proteas.

“We continue to build our ODI squad ahead of the Cricket World Cup and have planned 24 ODI matches before the tournament starts,” commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) CEO, Haroon Lorgat.

“These are good opportunities for our players, particularly the newcomers, to experience playing in New Zealand and Australia. The matches in Australia will be played at the main stadia which will be helpful in preparing our players for the CWC.

“The team will also play ODI series against Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe and the West Indies before the World Cup.”

Cricket Australia (CA) on Monday announced the following itinerary:

02-Nov-14: Sun, T20 warm-up match - North Sydney Oval
05-Nov-14: Wed, 1st T20 Australia v South Africa - Adelaide Oval, Adelaide
