India Cancel Their Warm-Up Match Ahead of South Africa Series

India Cancel Their Warm-Up Match Ahead of South Africa Series

The two-day fixture was supposed to be held at Eurolux Boland Park before the commencement of the first Test.

In case you didn't know.

.

India are scheduled to play a limited-overs series involving six ODIs and three T20Is in February but the fact that they go into the three-Test series without any match practice doesn't bode well with the team's "new-found" philosophy.

Cricket South Africa announced today that India's only practice match had been cancelled and the visitors would instead conduct training sessions on the two allotted days of the warm-up game.

A preparatory camp in Dharamshala for cricketers picked for the Test series in South Africa - these players are not a part of the ODI or Twenty20 teams - doesn't seem to be happening.

CSA confirmed the development in a statement which read - "Please be advised that the two-day warm-up match for India at Eurolux Boland Park will no longer be taking place".

Although, the BCCI did not give any reason officially for dropping the warm-up match, it is understood the request was made by the team management well in advance. Additionally, it also announced a change of timings for all the day-night matches during its home season including South Africa's inaugural day-night Test against Zimbabwe but excluding the T20s against India.

India are now competing in a three each of ODIs and T20Is against Sri Lanka that will come to a conclusion on 24th December. "Since the pacers in the Test squad should not be put under overexertion during the net sessions, it is only prudent that the next best lot of quick bowlers are there to provide quality practice", PTI quoted a BCCI official.

"They have been saying a few things in the media about wanting to prove they can play away from home, so it is definitely shaping up to be a good, evenly contested series".
