India to Tour SA for WTC Test Matches in January 2022

India to Tour SA for WTC Test Matches in January 2022

The Netherlands will tour South Africa for a three-match ODI series from November 26 to December 1 before India’s visit for a full series of Tests, T20Is, and ODIs beginning on December 17.

India’s tour of South Africa will kick off with a three-Test series which will form part of the 2021-23 cycle of the ICC World Test Championship. The Tests will be followed by a three-match ODI series that will be part of the ICC ODI Super League. The Indians will wind up their tour on January 26 after they have played the last of a four-T20I series.

Graeme Smith’s Statement to Media

Graeme Smith (CSA’s Director of Cricket) has said in a statement to media outlets, “It is probably the most congested home summer we have ever had. It is wonderful in these challenging times that there will be such high-quality cricket being played on our shores. This includes a full tour by India across all three formats, both red ball and white ball cricket against Bangladesh and the first visit to our country by the Netherlands national team.”

“Our women will also see plenty of action with the visit by the West Indies in the New Year for a series of both white-ball formats. As was the case last season we have had to centralise our international fixtures to comply with Covid protocols.”

“The Mzansi Super League has been moved to a new slot (February 7 to 28) while the domestic programme will as far as possible dovetail with our international programme.”

“The domestic season will get off to a tremendous start with the Provincial T20 knock-out competition which will be enhanced by the participation of those Proteas who are not part of the T20 World Cup squad.”
