CSA look to advance India's tour match

Cricket South Africa (CSA) has conveyed to the Indian team that it wishes to advance the two-day tour game in Benoni to Friday and Saturday, so that it doesn't clash with former president Nelson Mandela's funeral on Sunday. Saturday was originally supposed to be the first day of the match. The home board now awaits a no-objection nod from India before finalising the rescheduling. If India agree, they will now get a one-day break between the final ODI and the tour game.

CSA is also most likely to move the fourth day of the Dolphins-Titans game in Durban to Monday. That match is scheduled to be played from December 12 to December 15, but the fourth day, if needed, will be played on the 16th.
