Cricket South Africa has confirmed that Sri Lanka will visit South Africa for a two-match Test series, which falls under the World Test Championship cycle, in December-January 2020-21.

The two Tests, at Centurion and Johannesburg will fill the traditional Boxing Day and New Years’ slots.

The series against Sri Lanka will follow a limited-overs visit from England in November-December, which has already received a go-ahead from the South African government.

Australia are also set to visit South Africa in February 2021 for a three-Test series that will complete a packed home summer.

CSA also announced that it will send a security delegation to Pakistan to assess the feasibility of a tour to the country.

South Africa’s men’s team has not played any cricket since the abandonment of the tour of India in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
