What Cricket South Africa said

“The exciting times keep rolling on for the Proteas and this tour against old foes England won’t be any different with the team looking to go from strength to strength in world cricket,” said CSA director of cricket Graeme Smith.

“As the squad step up their preparations for the World Cup in New Zealand and on the back of an enthralling home series against the West Indies, it was important to secure more formidable fixtures for the side as they seek to continue performing at their highest level.

“The scheduled Test match, which is something most cricket fans want to see more of, is the cherry on top of what will be a pivotal tour in the build-up to the Commonwealth Games.”
