South Africa face a hectic schedule.



From Cricinfo:
South Africa face a hectic international season ahead of next year's World Cup in West Indies, with the announcement of the 2006-07 international fixtures programme by Cricket South Africa. The team will play a maximum of eight Tests and 20 ODIs, starting with the tour of Sri Lanka in July.

The Sri Lanka tour includes two Tests and a tri-series also involving India, with each team playing each other twice before the finals. South Africa then head to India for the ICC Champions Trophy where they will play a maximum of five matches, should they make the finals.

Their home season kicks off with a five-match ODI series against India during the first half of the summer. The focus then shifts to the Tests, with six back-to-back matches, three each against India and Pakistan. Pakistan will play their Tests at Centurion, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town, followed by five ODIs, with the last ending on February 14. Almost immediately after, South Africa head to West Indies for the World Cup, and will be based in St Kitts for the group stages.

I doubt that there will be some free debuts about, the selectors will stick to what they know (or don't know) and keep on going with that. I also doubt that anyone will be rested much during that time.
