Cricket South Africa withdrew from Australia’s ODI series in January

Cricket South Africa withdrew from Australia's ODI series in January

Cricket Australia (CA) on Wednesday issued a statement confirming the decision, forcing the country to revise its 2022-23 international schedule, although the Test series against the Proteas has remained unaffected.

CSA understands that the conflict in the new franchise T20 League, which starts that month, was meant to postpone the one-day series between January 12-17.

Due to the busy international schedule, a suitable alternate date could not be arranged.

CA CEO Nick Hawkley said: “It is disappointing that Cricket South Africa will not be able to play an ODI series in January.

“We are delighted to host South Africa for Boxing Day and New Year’s Tests and a series of three Tests with a wide range of international cricket events across Australia,” he added.

CSA’s decision to withdraw from the ODI series means they will lose all of Australia’s ICC Super League points, which could directly affect South Africa’s ability to qualify for the 2023 World Cup.
