After the West Indies tour, Virat Kohli and his boys are ready to achieve victory in their next project against South Africa. The Indian Cricket Team will be playing 3 T20I matches and 3 Test matches against South Africa from September 15 to October 23 at home.
This series can be proven as the best opportunity for the cricketers like Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer and Navdeep Saini to secure their places in Indian team’s T20I squad. All-rounders Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar and Krunal Pandya will be seen placed in the middle of the squad. Delhi lads Rishabh Pant and Shikhar Dhawan, who have had an indifferent tour to West Indies will also look to come good.
Whereas, South Africa has handed over the responsibility of captaincy to Quinton de Kock in the absence of Faf du Plessis. After a devastating ICC World Cup 2019 campaign, the Proteas would look to get some victories under their belt and regain confidence ahead of the Test series.
