Wanderers stadium in Johannesburg has been restored as a venue for three matches when England tour South Africa this year, Cricket South Africa announced on Wednesday.

The largest and best known cricket venue in the country was stripped of Test, ODI and Twenty20 fixtures after a row between its provincial officials and the national association.

Gauteng Cricket Board were unhappy with aspects of a deal Cricket South Africa struck to stage the Indian Premier League this year after security concerns forced the Twenty20 event to be moved from the sub-continent.

When Gauteng refused to back down, the national body switched the England fixtures to Durban, Bloemfontein and Port Elizabeth.

England begin a three-month tour with a Twenty 20 clash against South Africa at the Wanderers on November 13 and conclude with a Test from January 14 at the same venue.
