Canberra: International cricket will return to the Manuka Oval in November with Australia scheduled to play South Africa in a one-day international (ODI) under lights November 19.

"This is exciting news for Canberra cricket fans and another step in affirming Manuka Oval's credentials as a venue for international cricket. The centenary of Canberra ODI in February last year was a great success with a sell-out crowd and I'm sure that November's match against a strong South Africa will be no different," Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland said on Monday.

Significant upgrades to the stadium include broadcast lights, resurfacing and new stands.
