India tour of South Africa 2021/22: Schedule, squads, fixtures, where to watch on TV

After the home series against New Zealand where the Indian team won the T20 series 3-0 and followed it up with a 1-0 test series win. The Indian team was just one wicket short of victory in the 1st Kanpur test but with Virat Kohli taking the reign of the team in the 2nd test in Mumbai, the men in blue proved too good for the visitors to win the test by 372 runs.

The Indian team will next tour South Africa for a full fledged series which starts with the three match test series starting on boxing day (26 December). South Africa remains the only fortress where the men in blue have never won a test series and the history may change this time around. India lost the test series 2-1 when they last toured the rainbow country but the scoreline didn’t really looked justified as the visitors played some really good cricket but the scoreline just didn’t reflect in their favour.
