Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) have confirmed that Newlands will host the New Year's Test between the Proteas and England as planned.
The entire Western Province Cricket Association (WPCA) board was suspended last month due to "conducting business under distressed conditions".
Newlands is currently undergoing a R750 million development, which will see four new office blocks constructed at the northern side of the stadium.
CSA and WPCA had a meeting earlier this week to put plans into place for next year's second Test in Cape Town.
"As with all hosting agreements for international matches both here and around the world, there are certain guarantees that need to be put in place to confirm the hosting rights," commented CSA Chief Executive Thabang Moroe.
"We are currently gearing up to host the New Year's Test match at Newlands as planned. The readiness of the stadium is on track and, barring a significant change in circumstances, it is unlikely that the venue for this Test will change from our schedule.
"What is equally important is that cricket at all levels from franchise down to clubs and schools should not be compromised in any way."
"WPCA Chief Executive Nabeal Dien will be in charge of the smooth running of all cricket operations and will report directly to the CSA administrator, Professor Andre Odendaal, until such time as CSA is reasonably of the opinion that the WPCA administrative and financial affairs are being conducted according to best practice," concluded Moroe.

Speaking at the Cape Cobras launch on Friday, Dien could not say how long it would take for the WPCA to take back complete control of its own finances.
Newlands is expected to host their first game when the Cape Cobras take on the Warriors in the four-day series encounter on Monday, October 28.
It will also be home to the Cape Town Blitz and will host five Mzansi Super League pool games, starting from November 14.
