Here are three upcoming cricket tournaments to inspire your travel plans:
Bangladesh Tour of South Africa
The Bangladesh cricket team is scheduled to tour South Africa in September and October 2017 to play two Tests, three One Day Internationals (ODIs) and two Twenty20 International (T20I) matches. It will be Bangladesh’s first tour of South Africa in nine years, and you can catch all the cricket action in your own backyard!
All matches will be played at South Africa’s lower-profile grounds, with Kimberley, Paarl and East London hosting the three ODIs. The Bangladesh visit has also created the opportunity for Bloemfontein and Potchefstroom to host their first Tests since 2008 and 2002 respectively.

The Ashes 2017
The Ashes 2017 – 2018 series will be played at five venues across Australia between 23 November 2017 and 8 January 2018. An Ashes series is traditionally five Tests, hosted in turn by Australia and England at least once every four years.
As of August 2015, England holds the legendary Ashes, having won three of the five Tests in the 2015 series. Australia and England have won 32 series each, with five series drawn. The Adelaide Test (at the Adelaide Oval) will be a unique event, as it will be the first day/night Ashes Test in the history of the series.

Australia Tour of South Africa
Australia will tour South Africa for a four-Test series in early 2018. It will be the first time Australia and South Africa have played a Test series comprising more than three Tests since 1969. The Tests will be played in Durban, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town and Johannesburg in February and March 2018.
Test match cricket between South Africa and Australia has always produced significant battles and brought out high-class individual performances. Australia is the second-highest ranked team on the ICC Test table, and South Africa will need to beat them to regain their place at the top of the table. Remarkably, the Proteas have not won a Test series against the formidable Aussies on home soil since the 1960s. For fans, the Australia Tour of South Africa promises one of the most challenging and exciting seasons of Test match cricket.
