Mumbai:New Zealand's Jeff Crowe has been appointed as the match referee by the International CricketCouncil (ICC) for the India versus South Africa five-matchone-day international series to be hosted by the former in November.

ICC's Elite Panel umpire Daryl Harper and an umpire appointed by the Indian cricket board from the ICC's International panel of umpires and referees would be the on-field umpires for the matches to be held from November 16-28, a release from ICC said.

K Hariharan of Delhi, A V Jayaprakash of Karnataka and I Shivram of Hyderabad are the three Indians on the latter panelof umpires and would be doing duty during the series.

Hyderabad, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore and Mumbai have been allotted the matches in the series by the Indian board and the ODIs are to be held on November 16, 19, 22, 25 and 28.

But the full itinerary for the series, specifically the dates and venues corresponding to the five ODIs, are yet to be finalised by the Indian board, sources said today.

This series is to be preceded by the seven-match ODI series between India and Sri Lanka - from October 25 to November 12.

The Lankans will play their matches on October 25, 28,31, November 3, 6, 9 and 12 and the venues chosen to host the ODIs are Mohali, Nagpur, Vadodara, Ahmedabad, Jaipur orJodhpur, Rajkot and Pune, but not necessarily in this order.

The ICC, however, is yet to declare the referee and umpires' appointments for the India-Lanka series which precedes the India-South Africa rubber.
