CSA announced part of their fixtures for the next season on Thursday, with trips by Bangladesh, India and Australia all confirmed.

Bangladesh will play two Tests, three one-day internationals and two Twenty20 matches in September and October 2017.

Australia will be in South Africa in February and March 2018 for four Tests, with exact dates still to be worked out.

India will likely travel in late 2017, although CSA didn't announce dates for India's Test, ODI and T20 tour. South Africa normally hosts a Test series over the year-end holidays but there's been doubt as to whether India was willing to tour at that time.

India last toured South Africa in late 2013, to play two Tests and three ODIs. The Proteas won the Test series 1-0, by winning the second Test at Durban by 10 wickets, and won the ODI series 2-0. South Africa toured India in late 2015-16, and were thumped 3-0 in a four-match Test series, though they won the ODI series 3-2.
