After thrashing Australia by 4-1, the Indian cricket team takes on South Africa in the first T20I match at Kingsmead in Durban on Sunday, December 10. South Africa host India in a multi-format series with both teams' focus on the preparations for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2024.
Suryakumar Yadav will continue to lead the young Indian side in the absence of captain Rohit Sharma and other senior figures. Shubman Gill and Ravindra Jadeja missed the T20I series against Australia but are set to make their return which will boost team India further.
South Africa also enter this series without their captain Temba Bavuma and the likes of Kagiso Rabada and Rassie van der Dussen. But Aiden Makram-led side has won the last two T20I encounters against India and has enough firepower to produce a thrilling series against the world no.1 T20I team.
