Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney to be venues of Oz’s three-Test series against Proteas

Cape Town, Apr 27(ANI): South Africa’s three-Tests against Australia are likely to be played at Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.

At least two South African travel firms offering sports supporters’ tours are advertising provisional packages online involving Melbourne and Sydney as likely venues for the second and third Tests respectively, They tend to do this based on quiet knowledge before tour schedules are officially unveiled.

South Africa will face Australia between November and early December, rather than a holiday period because of the impasse between cricket boards over scheduling at that more lucrative time of the year.

The cricket series between Australia and South Africa appear certain to kick off at the Gabba in Brisbane, a venue that has not featured a South African Test match in 49 years, Sports 24 reports.

The last Test between both sides was held during the drawn five-Test series in 1963/64, when Bobby Simpson and Trevor Goddard were the respective captains. (ANI)
