The players have a three week break before the first Test match against Sri Lanka on December 15 at Centurion.
"We are three weeks out from the first Test match against Sri Lanka and even though it is not ideal to be playing limited overs cricket, time out in the middle will be good for the players," said Proteas' coach Gary Kirsten.
"We have to manage the situation very carefully (lack of four-day preparation) because it is what we have been dealt with, but I am sure that come December 15, the squad will be adequately prepared," he said.
