The India tour of South Africa is slated just before the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2024/25 in Australia.

On Friday, the Cricket South Africa (CSA) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the schedule for the India tour of South Africa later this year. The Men In Blue will take on the Proteas in the latter’s backyard in a four-T20I series on a short tour.

The India vs South Africa T20I series has been pencilled in between India’s home Test matches against New Zealand and the away tour of Australia for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

India had toured South Africa last year for all three formats. Then, Suryakumar Yadav captained India in a three-T20I series, which ended in a 1-1 draw with one game getting washed out.

The IND vs SA four-T20I series later this year will be played from November 8 to 15. The first match of the series will be played in Durban; the second game in Gqeberha, followed by a game in Centurion. The series will conclude in Johannesburg.

BCCI secretary Jay Shah said: “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.

“I am confident that the upcoming series will once again highlight the on-field cricketing excellence and deliver enthralling, high-intensity contests.”

India tour of South Africa 4-T20I series schedule:

  • 1st T20I on November 8 – Kingsmead, Durban
  • 2nd T20I on November 10 – St George’s Park, Gqeberha
  • 3rd T20I on November 13 – SuperSport Park, Centurion
  • 4th T20I on November 15 – Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg

Hosting India is a financial necessity for the CSA and most of the other cricket boards. According to ESPNcricinfo, each T20I match against India will earn CSA R150 million (US $8.4 million) from the broadcasters.

CSA’s chairperson Lawson Naido 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.”
