Australia will return to South Africa for the first time since the infamous 2018 bullet-tampering scandal, when they arrive in February for a series of three tests

Cricket South Africa (SCA) announced the news on Tuesday evening and although exact dates and locations are yet to be confirmed, the series will end in March

However, the overall result was overshadowed by the fallout from the bullet-tampering scandal that led to the one-year suspension of Steve Smith and David Warner, and a nine-month international ban for Cameron Bancroft

The Proteas will also host England from late November in limited-overs matches, Sri Lanka for a two-test showdown at the turn of the year and close their home campaign against Pakistan in three ODIs and three T20s during a busy summer of cricket in South Africa

« We are delighted to announce the international men’s cricket schedule for the home season, » said CSA interim general manager Kugandrie Govender

« The COVID-19 pandemic has inevitably forced many changes in … the traditional sequencing of matches scheduled in South Africa this season

Australia’s cricket summer has been significantly reduced from its original schedule, with a historic single test against Afghanistan and a limited run of overs against New Zealand canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic

There are key lessons Cricket Australia can learn from the way football codes have responded to the coronavirus pandemic with its national season on the horizon, writes Richard Hinds

The coronavirus has taken its toll on Australia’s 2021 plans; a two-trial tour of Bangladesh, scheduled for June, has been postponed, while limited visits to Zimbabwe and the West Indies have also been canned

The T20 Men’s World Cup has also been postponed to 2022, although a hastily organized limited tour of England filled the void

The Australians will eventually return to cricket this summer at home, hosting India for three days, three Twenty20 matches and four tests

The short format games will be played in Sydney and Canberra, probably from November 27 to December 8

Adelaide will host the opening of the Test series with a day and night meeting scheduled for December 17

Boxing Day match in Melbourne will be the second test, with the Sydney test set to start on January 7 and the fourth test in Brisbane starting on January 15
