The South Africa cricket team are touring England from July to September 2022 to play three Test matches, three One Day International (ODI) and three Twenty20 International (T20I) matches.[1] The Test matches form part of the 2021–2023 ICC World Test Championship.[2] In addition to the matches against England, South Africa had also played two T20I matches against the Ireland cricket team in Bristol.[3]

In November 2021, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced that Yorkshire County Cricket Club had been suspended from hosting international matches,[4] following the racism experienced by Azeem Rafiq.[5] Headingley was originally named as the venue for the third ODI.[6] In January 2022, the ECB set Yorkshire the deadline of spring 2022 to meet certain conditions to regain their international status for the match,[7] with the suspension being lifted the following month.[8]

At the end of June 2022, South Africa named their squads for the tour.[9] Their limited overs captain Temba Bavuma was ruled out of the tour due to injury, with Keshav Maharaj and David Miller named as the captains of their ODI and T20I squads respectively.[10] On 18 July 2022, England's Ben Stokes announced that he would retire from ODI cricket following the first match of the series,[11] citing the physical and mental demands of playing all three formats.[12]

South Africa won the opening ODI match by 62 runs, after they had made their highest team total in the format in England.[13] The second ODI was reduced to 29 overs per side due to rain, with England winning the match by 118 runs.[14] South Africa were bowled out for 83 runs, their joint-lowest total against England in an ODI match.[15] The third ODI finished as a no result after only 27.4 overs of play was possible, with the series drawn 1–1.[16]

England won the opening T20I by 41 runs, with Moeen Ali scoring the fastest fifty for England in the format, and the team making their second-highest total in a T20I match.[17] South Africa won the second T20I by 58 runs to level the series,[18] with Rilee Rossouw scoring 96 not out.[19] South Africa won the third T20I by 90 runs to win the series 2–1.[20]
