England set to tour South Africa for three-match ODI series in January and February next year, announced by Cricket South Africa (CSA).

The three-match series was originally due to be played in 2020 but England flew home after the Twenty20 leg following Covid-19 concerns.

SA chief executive Pholetsi Moseki said: "CSA is thrilled to be hosting England, West Indies and the Netherlands, all worthy opponents, in what is billed to be an exciting summer of international cricket.

"As we look forward to hosting these cricketing powerhouses, we invite our fans to swell the stadiums in numbers to support the Proteas as they lock horns with the best in the world."

The series will clash with the new domestic T20 competition that South Africa are launching at the same time in early 2023, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran and Liam Livingstone are all signed to teams in the tournament.

The first two matches will be played in Bloemfontein on 27 January and 29 January before the third in Kimberley on 1 February.

England are also scheduled to tour Bangladesh for three ODIs and three T20s in March 2023.
