South Africa will play three one-day internationals and three Twenty20 internationals in Ireland in July, the first time the Proteas have played more than one game there. The matches will be played between July 11 and July 25, with the one-day internationals being part of the International Cricket Council’s World Cup Super League. Cricket CSA Director Graeme Smith said the tour was a recognition of Ireland’s rapid progress as a “rapidly developing” cricket nation.
“Ireland has proven to be very competitive opponents in recent years, with a growing profile in the world game. It will also provide our players with more international action in unfamiliar circumstances, so we look forward to the game,” he said.
South Africa previously visited Ireland for a single game in June 2007 when they played an ODI in Belfast.
