Cape Town - 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 in Cape Town on January 5.

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.
