England’s limited-overs tour of South Africa finally got the green signal from the South African will start from November 27 next month.

The series will comprise of three T20Is and as many ODI matches that will take place between November 27- December 6. Earlier, the ECB had asked Cricket South Africa (CSA) to allow its players practice under the quarantine.

England players are set to arrive in South Africa in the mid-November, atleast two weeks before the series kickstarts in Cape Town and Boland Park.

“This is a wonderful boost for cricket,” Kugandrie Govender, CSA Acting CEO, said.

“The fact that England are the current World Cup champions will add tremendously to the two series and will give our own players every motivation to perform at their very best and challenge the acknowledged champions,” he added.

Had the South African government refused to fulfil the requirements of the touring side, the ECB would still have to comply with the protocols. There were also speculations that the ECB would have refused to tour South Africa in case of those circumstances.

But looks like, the SA government have agreed with their requirement and the England squad will be permitted to practice during the quarantine and while staying in their team hotel.

One of the spokesperson of the ECB said that squad for both ODI and T20I series will be announced by the early next month.
