CSA and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) concluded an agreement regarding the England Lions tour in South Africa during the 2014/15 season and the South Africa A tour in England in 2017.
“This is a very important agreement for us,” CSA general manager Corrie van Zyl said in a statement.
“It continues our policy of enabling our second best team to test itself against some of the strongest cricket playing countries in the world.
“What is particularly important is that our A side will now tour England in 2017 at the same time as our senior squad is in that country.
“England is always an out-of-season tour for us and it will help a lot to know that our back-up players are match-fit in case of need.”
ECB performance director David Parsons said the tour would be an excellent opportunity for them to take on tough opposition in a challenging environment.
“It will also offer us an opportunity to test the players at the very highest level and allow the players to ultimately learn a great deal from the trip,” Parsons said.
“We look forward to visiting South Africa early next year.”
