Johannesburg: Cricket South Africa has accepted Sri Lanka's request to split the Proteas' tour of the island nation next year.
The Test series will now take place in June/July, 2015. 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," said CSA Acting CEO Jacques Faul.
