The Board of Control for Cricket in India announced on Sunday that South Africa would visit the sub-continent for a lengthy tour later this year, including four Tests across the country.

The Proteas will visit in October and November, and aside from the four Tests, they will play five one-dayers and three T20s. Sri Lanka have also been added to the FTP, playing three T20s there in February next year.
