    Sunday, Oct 16: SA v Aus: 2nd Int T20 (D) - Johannesburg

    Wednesday, Oct 19: SA v Aus: 1st ODI (D/N) - Centurion
    Sunday, Oct 23: SA v Aus: 2nd ODI (D) - Port Elizabeth
    Friday, Oct 28: SA v Aus: 3rd ODI (D/N) - Durban

    Tuesday - Friday, Nov 1-4: SA 'A' v Aus: 4-day tour match - Potchefstroom

    Wednesday - Sunday, Nov 9-13: SA v Aus: 1st test match - Cape Town
    Thursday - Monday, Nov 17-21: SA v Aus: 2nd test match - Johannesburg

    Dec 09-11 Fri-Sun South Africa 'A' v Sri Lanka 3-Day Tour Match Benoni
    Dec 15-19 Thu-Mon South Africa v Sri Lanka 1st Test Match Centurion
    Dec 26-30 Mon-Fri South Africa v Sri Lanka 2nd Test Match Durban
    Jan 03-07 Tue-Sat South Africa v Sri Lanka 3rd Test Match Cape Town
    Jan 11 Wed (D/N) South Africa v Sri Lanka 1st ODI Paarl
    Jan 14 Sat South Africa v Sri Lanka 2nd ODI East London
    Jan 17 Tue (D/N) South Africa v Sri Lanka 3rd ODI Bloemfontein
    Jan 20 Fri (D/N) South Africa v Sri Lanka 4th ODI Kimberley
    Jan 22 Sun South Africa v Sri Lanka 5th ODI Johannesburg


    Immediately after the Aus tour there is a SL tour

    Aus tour:- 2 T20, 3 ODI. 2 Test. 1 FC
    SL Tour:- 0 T20, 5 ODI, 3 Tests , 1 FC

    Aus tour is of 40 days
    SL tour is of 44 days


    2 extra ODI equivalent to 2 T20 but still they are playing 1 test extra. I don't understand what time constraint is there and why can't SA fit in the extra test. It is really surprising. I think they probably want to avoid the test series

    Well NZ are supposed to be touring Australia starting in mid-November so that's a pretty big constraint I'd suggest.

    Has anyone ever liked the idea of a two-test "series"? Is it a comprimise if no party is satisfied?

    You want less international cricket in the workload?

    Fine, reduce the number of overseas tours, maybe only one per season.

    Okay, you want more, but shorter tours?

    Reduce or get rid of JAMODIS.

    Desperately want ODIs too?

    Make a tour series Test or ODI, not both.

    There are so many options here and they've gone with the one that is literally enjoyed by the fewest possible people.

    Well, the hands of BCCI were forced in those instances by the wrath of the Indian fans. The power of the TV remote. Of their own accord, they had not scheduled any test matches at all.

    To check out the following that test cricket has on Cricket Web, I went through some old threads on the India-SA and India-Australia series recently. The amount of flack that BCCI received for increasing the number of test matches from zero to two (and not three) was somewhat astonishing.

    I have had great fun this morning, visualizing the Cricket Web horde that would have spontaneously arisen, breathing fire and brimstone at the BCCI had they actually curtailed the number of test matches in a series in order to accommodate a T20 tournament.

    Which will be ****ing awesome.

    (CLT20 can **** off though. Most pointless, stupid tournament in existence)
    Except to the states. It's the only real way that they can get their hands on more money than what they get from Cricket Australia and increase their revenue, especially from a Cricket Operations point of view.

    T20s can be chucked out. Still like the 50 over format though.
