On 31st May, 2019-2020 season’s home fixtures have been announced for both South Africa Women’s Emerging side and the Proteas Women by the national cricket board of South Africa. While the Emerging side is going to face Bangladesh Emerging in July 2019, the South Africa Women will be hosting a home series against Australia Women in March 2020 (immediately after ICC Women’s T20 World Cup).
The SA Emerging squad will host their Bangladesh equivalents in three Women’s One-Day matches and three T20s to be held between 23 July – 04 August this year. Next year, Proteas Women are set to take on Australia in three Women’s One-Day Internationals (ODI) and in a three-match Women’s T20 International series from 19 March – 04 April 2020.
The 50-over matches will carry an added importance, with ICC Women’s Championship (IWC) points up for grabs.
CSA High Performance Manager, Vincent Barne said:
“There’s a lot of cricket coming up for the Women’s team over the next two years, with the T20 World Cup next year and the Women’s World Cup in 2021, so it is important to ensure the development pipeline continues to produce and that is where the National Academy and the emerging side will prove to be pivotal”.
