ECB & CSA finally agreed to play the ODI series for England tour of South Africa 2023. Tour was divided into parts in which test matches & T20I series were placed back in August-September 2022. The final part of the series has three ODIs scheduled which is part of the ODI super league and will also act as a preparation for the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup which will be played in India later this year.
England tour of South Africa 2023 Schedule
It was a complex challenge for the cricket board to find out available time on which this series can be scheduled because of players’ commitments in different leagues along with the SA20 League as well. Complete England tour of South Africa 2023 fixtures are as follows.
|Jan 27, Fri||South Africa vs England, 1st ODI||Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein||11:00 AM GMT / 01:00 PM LOCAL|
|Jan 29, Sun||South Africa vs England, 2nd ODI||Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein||08:00 AM GMT / 10:00 AM LOCAL|
|Feb 01, Wed||South Africa vs England, 3rd ODI||Diamond Oval, Kimberley||11:00 AM GMT / 01:00 PM LOCAL|
CSA has scheduled this ODI series in Oval because, at the same time, their very own SA20 League will be played on other beautiful venues across South Africa. SA20 is scheduled from 10th January to 11th February.
Team Squads For England tour of South Africa 2023
Both cricket boards have announced the teams for the upcoming series and it is pretty exciting to see Jofra Archer making a comeback in the International squad after going through a severe rehabilitation program due to several elbow and back injuries. He played his last international game in March 2021, on England’s T20I tour of India. Below are the team squads for the England tour of South Africa 2023.
England ODI Squad:
Jos Buttler (capt), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Ben Duckett, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Phil Salt, Olly Stone, Reece Topley, David Willey, Chris Woakes
South Africa ODI Squad:
Dean Elgar, Sarel Erwee, Aiden Markram, Keegan Petersen, Rassie van der Dussen, Khaya Zondo, Marco Jansen, Ryan Rickelton, Kyle Verreynne, Simon Harmer, Keshav Maharaj, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortjem, Duanne Olivier, Kagiso Rabada, Lutho Sipamla, Glenton Stuurman.
There are players who will also be playing in the SA20 League in the SA team squad but will leave the league due to International duty and then join back six days after the conclusion of the ODI series. Both England and South Africa have very strong and balanced teams and I am pretty sure this is going be one the best ODI series in recent times.
Last two years had two back-to-back ICC Men’s T20 World Cups which is why One Day Internationals went to the back seat but it is great that things are going to be normal now and all cricket boards are looking to schedule more ODI series because of the upcoming ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in India.

England tour of South Africa 2023 Series Prediction
Even though South Africa will have the home advantage but considering the kind of pitches CSA prepares in white ball format, I expect England to come on top and win by 2-1 because of the excellent power batting resources they got along with top quality bowling in both pace and spin. Sam Curran the ICC Men’s World T20 hero will be crucial again to win this bilateral series along with high expectations from Jofra Archer who is making a comeback after a long time.
Due to the introduction of T20 cricket, we now often see scores of 360 plus in ODI games on a consistent basis and even that is not safe. England has scored 450 plus many times in ODIs as well so it will be a cracker of a series for sure.
