Two-match Test tour of New Zealand confirmed

Cricket South Africa (CSA) and New Zealand Cricket (NZC) have today confirmed the schedule for South Africa’s two-match Test tour of New Zealand to be played early next year.

The first Test gets underway from 04 – 08 February at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui, Tauranga, before the Proteas take on the BLACKCAPS in the second Test between 13 – 17 February at Seddon Park in Hamilton.

A three-day warm-up match is scheduled from 29 – 31 January in Christchurch in preparation for the series that forms part of the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) 2023-25 cycle.

The sides last met in 2022, when South Africa came from behind to draw the two-Test series 1-1.

CSA Chief Executive Officer Pholetsi Moseki commented: “The tour of New Zealand will be an excellent opportunity for the Proteas to test themselves away from home for the first time during the new cycle of the ICC WTC.

“This tour confirms CSA’s commitment to honouring the ICC’s Future Tours Programme (FTP), regardless of other competing and equally compelling engagements. It is an affirmation of our appetite for Test matches, which we always take delight in playing.”
