South Africa will tour Australia for five ODIs and three T20s in November. This immediately follows a three-match ODI series in New Zealand. In all, the two tours are seen as part of South Africa's preparation for the 2015 World Cup, which will be held in Australia and New Zealand.

"We continue to build our ODI squad ahead of the Cricket World Cup and have planned 24 ODI matches before the tournament starts," said Haroon Lorgat, the Cricket South Africa chief executive. "These are good opportunities for our players, particularly the newcomers, to experience playing in New Zealand and Australia. The matches in Australia will be played at the main stadia which will be helpful in preparing our players for the CWC. The team will also play ODI series against Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe and the West Indies before the World Cup."

According to the schedule announced by Cricket Australia, South Africa will begin their tour with a T20 warm-up match at the North Sydney Oval on November 2, three days before they play the first T20 against Australia at the Adelaide Oval. The ODI series, meanwhile, begins on November 14 at the WACA in Perth and ends on November 23 at the SCG.

I know it's World Cup practise, but it would have been nice to see some test matches.
