Looks like the SA Government is going to intervene in the control of CSA , so highly unlikely this tour takes place.
SA Government has given the go ahead for this tour (3 ODI'S & 3 T20's) in Cape Town & Paarl.

Tour party scheduled to arrive November 17 then spend 10 days in isolation.

Suspect it will affect many of the England players rumoured to be playing BBL.

ECB have also been planning a camp in the UAE before Christmas for their Test Squad to prepare for the proposed Sri Lanka & India series.

Hmmm - I have a soft spot for Jordan, but probably not the best wicket/ground for him?
No idea what will be happening yet and whether they will be playing in one hub or multiple hubs.

Archer , Faulkner & Meredith have scored well at Hobart & Launceston so he might be ok.

With England due to tour South Africa and the possibility of a white ball series against Pakistan (plus they will probably have a extended number for their Test Squad ) doubt whether we see too many of their players out here for that long to be honest.

Think the media is trying to build some hype.

If CA don't make a decision about the India series soon , BCCI might just say don't worry we will stay home and organise alternative series.

That’s a good point re Archer and co.

I feel like Jordan would score better on a big ground where there’s more potential for outfield catches (when he’s bowling or fielding). It might have just stuck in my mind but he seemed to be involved in a lot of those last season.
