South Africa tour of India 2022: Full squads, Fixtures & Preview: All you need to know
The South Africa tour of India 2022, 28th September to 11th October, will be the precursor to the T20 World Cup for both teams.
FIXTURES, LIVE SCORES, RESULTS AND STATS
India have six T20Is - three against Australia and South Africa each - before they start their T20 World Cup campaign in Australia.
South Africa have been playing some very competitive cricket of late, not least the way they stunned England in white-ball cricket recently, and their form will make for a gripping series against India.
South Africa will be led by Temba Bavuma and have all their frontline players available more or less, with the exception of Rassie van der Dussen who has been ruled out of the World Cup as well due to injury.
World Cup standbys Mohammed Shami and Deepak Chahar have found a place in the Indian T20I side against the Proteas. The two will feature in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya who will report to the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru for conditioning-related work.
The Proteas kick off their tour with T20Is at Thiruvananthapuram (September 28), Guwahati (October 2) and Indore (October 4). India will also play South Africa in a three-match ODI series just before the World Cup, most likely featuring their second rung.
T20I Squad: Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul (vc), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant (wk), Dinesh Karthik (wk), R. Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Shami, Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah.
