Cape Town - The Proteas will play three one-day internationals against the New Zealand Black Caps in October as part of their build-up to the ICC World Cup 2015 to be hosted jointly by Australia and New Zealand.

“We are focusing on our ODI team before the CWC and have scheduled 24 matches over the next nine months,” commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat.

“It will be a wonderful opportunity for our players, particularly the newcomers, to experience conditions in New Zealand which can be quite different from what the team is likely to encounter in Australia.

“After the three-match series in New Zealand the team will travel directly to Australia for a five-match ODI series.

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

New Zealand Cricket announced the itinerary as follows this week:

1st ODI: Tuesday, October 21, Bay Oval, Tauranga - Day
2nd ODI: Friday, October 24, Bay Oval, Tauranga - Day
3rd ODI: Monday, October 27, Seddon Park, Hamilton - D/N
