Dubai: The wrangling over the itinerary for South Africa's forthcoming tour of India has been sorted out with the two boards agreeing to split the series into two phases. Accordingly, India will host South Africa for two Tests in November this year and the latter will return for a limited overs series next year on their way to Australia. The two Tests besides a warm-up match will be played between November 4 and 30. "We value the friendship between India and South Africa and so we decided to split the two series," United Cricket Board of South Africa President Ray Mali said in Dubai yesterday. Mali and Indian Cricket Board chief, Jagmohan Dalmiya, were in Dubai for an ICC meeting to discuss the Zimbabwe crisis arising from a players' strike. (PTI)
