Mumbai: The English Cricket Board has expressed its desire to split the forthcoming tour to India later this year in two parts.

A Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) official said here on Monday that English players wanted to celebrate Christmas and New year in England and hence their Board has asked for the Test schedule to end before December 23.

The One-day International part will be fixed at the end of January, the official said adding, ''BCCI sees no problem in such an arrangement since England is not creating any extra cost for it.''
