India cancel warm-up game before 1st SA Test
Cricket South Africa (CSA) have confirmed that a two-day warm-up match between India and a CSA XI that was scheduled to take place at Boland Park has been called off.
India have opted instead to use those two days for training ahead of their three-match Test series against the Proteas starting at Newlands on 5 January.
It means that India will go into that first Test without having played a practice match in South Africa.
CSA has also announced a number of other changes in a new-look itinerary for the beginning of 2018.
