“It once again allows the opportunity for players to showcase their skills, as post the Games we prepare for the home T20 World Cup, and the team has the capabilities to finish within the medals. We could not have asked for a better opportunity to prepare for these Games, with the tour of Ireland and also against England. It has allowed for much rotation and opportunities to players,” he added.

South Africa will play three Twenty20 Internationals against England before travelling to Birmingham for the Games. The games will take place on July 21, 23, and 25.
