As per the schedule, South Africa will reach India on November 14 and play their first One- dayer on November 17.
''We owe India five ODIs in terms of the International Cricket Council (ICC) schedule. We had no option but to play these matches in November because of the ICC Super Series blocking other periods,'' said Gerald Majola, CEO of the CSA.
It is worth recalling that Graeme Smith had led a South African team that visited India last year for a two-match Test series.
According to the itinerary, One-dayers are slated for November 17, 20, 23, 26 and 29.
