After a long break from international cricket, the South African national cricket team hosts England in a limited-overs series this month. The SA v ENG 2020 series will feature 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is. The home side have declared a 24-man squad for the white-ball series against the defending World Cup winners.
Quinton de Kock will captain the South African side, with experienced names like Faf du Plessis, David Miller, and Kagiso Rabada backing him up. Uncapped 28-year-old Glenton Stuurman is the only debutant included in the squad.

It is important to note that South Africa have not played an ODI match since March, earlier this year. In their last ODI series, the Proteas played at home and completed a 3-0 whitewash of Australia.
England's last ODI series came against the Australians as well but ended in a 2-1 defeat.
South Africa welcomed England earlier this year for a 3 match ODI series that finished tied at 1-1. The visitors had secured the preceding T20I series by winning games at Kingsmead and Supersport Park.
As part of restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cape Town and Paarl will host the upcoming SA v ENG series behind closed doors. Here is the complete schedule for this tour.
