CSA agrees to reschedule Sri Lanka Tests
Johannesburg: Cricket South Africa (CSA) has confirmed accepting a request from Sri Lanka Cricket to split the 2013 tour to accommodate them in an ODI tri-series with India and West Indies and avoid a likely clash with the Sri Lankan Premier League.
The Sri Lanka vs. South Africa Test series will now take place in May-June, 2015, and the Proteas will still fulfil their obligation to play five ODIs and three T20 International matches in 2013.
“We have acceded to the request for two reasons. In the first place we have a very good relationship with Sri Lanka Cricket and we have done our best to assist them. In the second place it actually works out quite well for the Proteas in handling their workload effectively,” a website quoted CSA Acting CEO Jacques Faul, as saying.
“The Proteas will now undertake their Test tour of Sri Lanka in June, 2015, before they move on to Bangladesh in July as part of the ICC Future Tours Programme (FTP),” he added.
Faul further said that the “re-scheduling of the Test series means that the Proteas will now have a three-week break between the Champions Trophy and the limited overs series in Sri Lanka,” the report said.
