In anticipation of the highly awaited multi-format tour to Australia later this month, Cricket South Africa (CSA) has today announced the 25-player Proteas Women squad attending the national training camp in Tshwane between 6 – 12 January.

On the back of the epic showdown between South Africa and Australia at the 2023 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup final in Cape Town, the two teams are set to face off once again between 27 January and 18 February. 

This time, the battle will unfold in the shape of two three-match T20 International (T20Is) and One-Day International (ODIs) series before culminating in a historic four-day Test match. T

This marks the Proteas Women’s first Test fixture since facing England in June 2022, and their second red-ball encounter after taking on India in 2014.

In preparation for the tour, CSA will host a week-long training camp in Tshwane featuring a mixture of nationally contracted players along with the prospective luminaries from the SA U19 set-up and the Women’s National Academy Class of 2023, including SA Emerging players who travelled to Zimbabwe for a six-match T20 tour in November last year.

Proteas Women Convenor of Selectors, Clinton du Preez said: “The upcoming camp allows us to address certain areas within the squad and to create depth as we prepare for Australia. 

“Transitioning our up-and-coming players into the camp only bodes well and addresses our succession planning, noting that the squad is in a re-building phase and we aim to use these opportunities to address those strategic areas.”

“Although this tour is set to feature three formats, however, our focus over the next few days is the preparation to compete in the four-day Test Match, and we are excited to take on Australia on home soil,” he concluded.
