England's Fixtures in South Africa Due Soon

After a delay of a couple of months, England's fixture list for the winter tour to South Africa later this year, should finally see the light of day before the end of this month. It has been a frustrating time for England's loyal followers, as they await news of the final details so they can plan their much looked forward to holiday.

With some 10,000 England Cricket Fans expected to follow the team to Cape Town, the news can't come soon enough.

Whilst news recently that the South African board were preparing to hold to ransom some of the potential test venues, had been met with more frustration back in the UK, it now appears some common ground has been met and a full schedule is due out in the coming weeks.

It was a move that would not only have angered traveling parties from England for the upcoming four test tour this winter, it was also outraging locals, who flock to the Newlands ground for the new year test, as well as the 'Pink ODI' at the Wanderers.

An email from CSA's Chief Finanacial Officer, had outlined a ploy whereby cricket unions in partnership with local municipalities would bid for the right to host international matches.

It was discovered by the influencial IOL in South Africa, who are one of the Country's leading mult-platform content companies.

England supporters have been waiting patiently for news of both the South Afircan tour and the one that takes place in November, prior to that, in New Zealand.

Despite the delay, thousands will flock to both countries, with more expected in South Africa over Christmas and the New Year.
