The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Cricket South Africa (CSA) confirmed the schedule of India’s T20I series to South Africa to be played in November 2024.

The tour will consist of a four-match T20I series beginning November 8 in Kingsmead Stadium (Durban), with the next game on November 10 in St George’s Park (Gqeberha), as per the BCCI release.

The series then moves to the Highveld with Supersport Park (Centurion) hosting the game on November 13, and Wanderers Stadium (Johannesburg) hosting the last game of the series on November 16.

India and South Africa have engaged in thrilling bilateral T20I series in recent years, with three of the last five series ending in draws and India clinching victory in the other two.

South Africa’s last series win against India dates way back to 2015. However, beyond bilateral series, the Proteas triumphed over the Men in Blue in their latest encounter at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022.

Jay Shah, Honourary Secretary of the BCCI expressed confidence that the upcoming series will once again highlight the on-field cricketing excellence and deliver enthralling, high-intensity contests

“India and South Africa have always shared a deep and strong bond, one that both nations take great pride in. The Indian Cricket Team has consistently received immense appreciation and love from South African fans, and this sentiment is equally strong among Indian fans towards the South African side.”

Lawson Naidoo, CSA Chairperson, said: “I would like to thank the BCCI for their continued support to South Africa’s cricket, and world cricket in general. Any tour by the Indian cricket team to our shores is filled with amazing camaraderie and exciting cricket, and I know our fans will be eagerly awaiting this series which will showcase the exceptional talent from both teams.”
