South Africa’s busy home summer gets busier and busier. Following their 3-match Test tour of Australia, the Proteas will get set to host Sri Lanka for a jam-packed bilateral series, comprising of 3 Tests, 3 T20 Internationals and 5 One Day Internationals.
The Proteas have been in superb form in limited-overs cricket as of late, with their most impressive showing coming in the form of a 5-0 whitewash of Australia. Their win over New Zealand in 2 match Test series in August suggests the Proteas are well equipped to take on a fairly young Sri Lankan side.
For Sri Lanka, their tri series against West Indies and hosts Zimababwe should give them enough practice time to gear up for the Protean Test. The Lankans have struggled to find form in limited overs cricket in recent times, and will be looking for a good show in South Africa when they play 3 T20Is and 5 ODIs.[table id=10 /]
