Two tests in India
South Africa will play two tests and three one-day internationals on their tour of India next month, the Board of Control for Cricket in India said yesterday.
The first will be in Nagpur from Feb 6-10 and the second in Kolkata from Feb 14-18.
Jaipur (Feb. 21, day/night), Kanpur (Feb. 24) and Ahmedabad (Feb. 27, day/night) will host the three one-day internationals.
South African flanker Wikus van Heerden says he will leave English Premiership club Saracens at the end of this season.
Van Heerden wants to leave for family reasons and Saracens have agreed to his request.
