Cape Town: Cricket South Africa have announced their home schedule for the 2018/19 season that will see tours by Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe, with the focus on One-Day Internationals ahead of the World Cup next year.
There will be a just a week's break before the end of Pakistan's tour and the arrival of Sri Lanka for tests in Durban (Feb. 13-17) and Port Elizabeth (Feb 21-25).
The sides will also be involved in a series of five ODIs and three Twenty20 fixtures that will finish on Mar. 24.
