Hudson told the Volksblad newspaper that the tourists' scheduled first class match in Benoni won't be against a full-blown SA "A" side because the match starts on the same day as the 1-Day Cup final. (9 December)

The Proteas' three-Test series against Sri Lanka starts at SuperSport Park in Centurion on December 15.
