Cape Town - Tickets have gone on sale for what promises to be an exciting home season of cricket for the Proteas as they face Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

“As we prepare for a bumper home season with both Pakistan and Sri Lanka visiting our shores, we can all look forward to a programme of top class international cricket,” commented CSA Chief Executive, Thabang Moroe.

“Last season the Proteas international matches were extremely well attended, and, on behalf of the Proteas and CSA, I would like to thank all our fans for their wonderful support.

”Pakistan, who are our guests during the holiday period and the festive season, will be extremely tough opposition that will provide just the test our Proteas need in their build-up to next year's ICC Men's World Cup in England," said Moroe

“They are currently the No 1 ranked side in T20 International cricket and the No. 5 ranked side in ODI cricket. Their performances in the latter format include victory in the 2017 edition of the ICC Champions Trophy tournament.

“Their recent results in Test cricket include a series draw away to England earlier this year and a more recent victory over Australia on their neutral home ground.

“In all, our fans can look forward to 5 Test matches, 10 One-Day Internationals and 6 T20 International matches during our action-packed home summer,” concluded Moroe.
