🏏:engerland: England (and :walesisntit: Wales) Cricket 2023

One day series in build up to 50 over World Cup starts tomorrow

Fast bowler Archer, 27, is set to play for England for the first time in almost two years on Friday (11:00 GMT).

The three-match series begins a 2023 in which England will look to defend the 50-over World Cup and regain the Ashes.

The opener is in Bloemfontein, as is Sunday’s second game, before a finale in Kimberley on Wednesday.

The series is rescheduled from 2020, when England left South Africa after a number of positive coronavirus tests.

In order for it to be played, the inaugural season of the South Africa T20 league has taken an eight-day break and will recommence on 2 February.

This tour and England’s limited-overs trip to Bangladesh in March - also rescheduled from 2021 - come either side of a two-Test series in New Zealand in February, and only a handful of players are involved in both red and white-ball squads.

England, world champions in both limited-overs formats, will defend the 50-over title they won in 2019 in India in October and November.
