The Wanderers and Kingsmead will host the two-Test series between South Africa and India in December.

The Johannesburg and Durban venues – as well as Centurion – have been named as the venues for the preceding ODI series.

"After the completion of our two Test matches against India we will have a further three Tests against Australia," commented CSA president Chris Nenzani.

"This will allow all of our five premier Test match venues to host a five-day match. I would also like to assure all our stakeholders that we are working on plans to fill the gaps in our international itinerary for the 2013-14 season."

The Indians will arrive in the country on 2 December – and will also play a two-day fixture against a South African Invitation XI at Willowmoore Park in Benoni.

Wednesday's announcement confirmed a severely curtailed series, which originally featured two Twenty20 Internationals, seven ODIs and three Tests, before the Board of Control for Cricket India's objection – due to a strained relationship with Cricket South Africa chief executive Haroon Lorgat.
