Sydney - Australia will play South Africa in a one-day international at Canberra's Manuka Oval on November 19, Cricket Australia said on Monday.

It will be the second game involving the Australian team in the national capital following recent upgrades which have boosted ground capacity to 15 000.

“The Centenary of Canberra ODI in February last year (against the West Indies) 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,” CA CEO James Sutherland said.
