Mumbai:

The South African cricket team, with an interim coach in charge, arrived here late night for a two-match Test series against India.

The Graeme Smith-led squad, which arrived at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport at around 12.20 am, will proceed to Nagpur.

The visitors will commence their short tour with a two-day warm-up game beginning February 2 against the Board President's XI led by Mumbai middle order batsman Rohit Sharma.

This would be followed by two Tests - Nagpur (Feb 6-10) and Kolkata (Feb 14-18) - and three one-dayers in Jaipur (Feb 21), Kanpur (Feb 24) and Ahmedabad (Feb 27).

The Proteas have come here after controversies over the resignation of coach Mickey Arthur and sacking of selection panel headed by Mike Procter.

Former South African fast bowler Corrie van Zyl has taken over as the interim coach.

Squad: Graeme Smith (Capt), Hashim Amla, Johan Botha, Mark Boucher (wk), AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Paul Harris, Jacques Kallis, Ryan McLaren, Morne Morkel, Wayne Parnell, Alviro Petersen, Ashwell Prince, Dale Steyn, Lonwabo Tsotsobe. Coach: Corrie van Zyl.
