Ireland to host South Africa for ODI, T20I series in July


Fixtures against Netherlands and Zimbabwe also confirmed for 2021 summer

South Africa will travel to Ireland for three ODIs and three T20Is in July, as Cricket South Africa look to fill the men’s team’s winter with fixtures following the postponement of a three-Test home series against Australia.

This tour is part of the 2018-2023 Future Tours Programme (FTP) with the ODIs forming part of the World Cup Super League. The matches will be played between July 11 and 25 in Malahide and Stormont.

This is the first time South Africa are visiting Ireland since 2007 when they played one ODI against Ireland and a three-match ODI series against India in the country. Vernon Philander debuted on that tour. Since then, South Africa have only met Ireland at 50-over World Cups and never in a T20I.
