England's forthcoming winter tour of South Africa will start six days earlier than originally planned, after the two boards agreed to schedule an extra pair of warm-up games ahead of the two T20Is and five ODIs that are already in the itinerary.

England's original plan had been to play a solitary 20-over warm-up match against South Africa A at Bloemfontein on November 10, before their opening Twenty20 international at the Wanderers three days later.

Now, they have lined up two 50-over fixtures against a Board President's XI at Bloemfontein and Kimberley on November 6 and 8, and will arrive in the country on November 1.
