Fresh from the empathic series win in Australia, the Proteas will want to use home-ground advantage when they welcome Sri Lanka for an incoming series.

The two teams will play 11 matches between December 2016 and February 2017. There will be three test matches followed by three T20 matches and five one day internationals (ODI).

The two teams are currently ranked 5th and 6th and would like to improve their rankings. South Africa is just one ranking above Sri Lanka on the test rankings and 2nd in the ODI rankings, while Sri Lanka is ranked a lowly 6th in the same format. On the T20 circuit, South Africa is ranked 3rd while their opponents are ranked 8th.
