England Women will host South Africa in a Test match for the first time in almost 20 years in June before ending a busy domestic summer with limited-overs series against India.
South Africa Women Tour to England
The Proteas will tour England from June to July, competing in a multi-format series which will begin with a one-off Test match – South Africa’s first four-day fixture since they faced India in 2014.
The last time England and South Africa faced each other in a Test was 2003, when they played two matches, at Shenley and Taunton, with the hosts winning the series 1-0.
In a multi-format series, South Africa are scheduled to play a Test match after eight years, when they take on England on June 27 at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton. It will be the first Test match for South Africa since 2014 against India in Mysuru.
The Test series will be followed by three One-Day International series and three Twenty20 Internationals. While the ODIs will be played in Northampton, Bristol and Leicester., the T20Is will be hosted by Chelmsford, Worcester and Derby.
After the culmination of the Commonwealth Games and the Hundred, India will visit for a second summer in a row for three T20s and three ODIs, the last of which will be at Lord’s on 24 September.
Managing Director of Women’s Cricket, Clare Connor, said: “We are thrilled to be able to announce a compelling summer of international women’s cricket against two of the best teams in the world, in what is a bumper year for the women’s game.
“In particular, we are excited to be taking England Women back to Lord’s and up to the Riverside Ground as we continue to take the game to as many fans as possible.
“With the second edition of the Hundred and the historic opportunity to participate in the Commonwealth Games on home soil, we’re looking forward to seeing our players thrive on the biggest stages.
“Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, we keep seeing growth in our female participation numbers and I’m optimistic that a summer as action-packed as this, with more days broadcast than ever before, will continue to inspire more women and girls to play and watch the game.”
