South Africa have confirmed the dates for their three-match Twenty20 International series against Australia in March next year.
The first Twenty20 International will be played in Durban on March 4, the second in Johannesburg on March 6 and the final game in Cape Town on March 9.
The Twenty20 series will conclude a packed South African summer, which will see the Proteas play New Zealand and England at home. It will also serve as a warm-up for the 2016 World Twenty20, which begins on March 11 in India.
“This announcement completes our home international fixtures for the 2015/16 summer,” Cricket South Africa chief executive Haroon Lorgat said. “We will be competing at home against New Zealand, England and Australia. These are three top-class teams and it promises to be one of our most exciting and competitive home seasons in a long time.
“The T20 Series against Australia provides for both teams the perfect lead-in to the ICC World Twenty20 which will be played in India immediately afterwards.”
