South Africa to host India for 4 T20Is in November

Champions Trophy

In a much-anticipated cricketing clash, India is all set to embark on a tour of South Africa for a thrilling four-match T20I series. The announcement by Cricket South Africa (CSA) has ignited excitement among fans and promises intense battles on the cricket field.

India Tour of South Africa: T20I Schedule

1st T20I: November 8 at Kingsmead, Durban

2nd T20I: November 10 at St George’s Park, Gqeberha

3rd T20I: November 13 at SuperSport Park, Centurion

4th T20I: November 15 at Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg

These four T20Is were initially postponed during India’s 2021 tour of South Africa due to the surge in Covid-19 cases. Back then, India played three Tests and three ODIs, with South Africa emerging victorious in both formats. The T20Is were rescheduled for a more opportune time, and now that time has arrived.

India had toured South Africa last year, where both teams played a Test, ODI and T20I series. While India won the ODI series by a margin of 2-1, the Test and T20I series finished with the honours shared with a score of 1-1.

Hosting Indian Cricket Team is a financial lifeline for most cricket boards, and CSA is no exception. Broadcast revenues from a single T20 match amount to over R150 million (approximately US $8.4 million). CSA, which declared a loss of R119 million in the last financial year, eagerly awaits this series.

CSA Chairperson Lawson Naidoo expressed gratitude to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for their continued support. He anticipates an exciting series that will showcase exceptional talent from both teams.
