The Indian team will leave for South Africa tour right after the end of the 5-match T20 series against Australia on home soil. Here he has to play a series of 3 T20, 3 ODI and 2 Test matches. Considering the importance of the Test series, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is planning three four-day practice matches, so that the senior players of Team India can fully acclimatize themselves to the conditions before the start of the series. Some senior players of the Indian team, who are currently out of the Test team, are also looking forward to their comeback, in which they can also get a chance to play in these practice matches so that they can prove themselves.

Team will be announced soon

The Indian team for the South Africa tour can also be announced soon. Some new names can also be seen in the team, who have been performing consistently well in domestic cricket for quite some time. Giving information about these practice matches, a BCCI source said that yes, there are three four-day Tests between India ‘A’ and South Africa ‘A’ next month. The team for that will be announced in a few days. Ahead of the main team’s two Test matches in Centurion (26 to 30 December) and Cape Town (3 to 7 January), most of the young players who have been performing consistently along with some senior players will also be present there. This will give all the players a chance to adjust to the conditions as per the conditions there.

All eyes on the return of Ajinkya Rahane and Pujara

Team India has not succeeded in winning the Test series in South Africa even once. In such a situation, this tour is going to prove to be very important for the team. Meanwhile, everyone’s eyes are also on the announcement of the Test team in which Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane are included in the team or not because the performance of both has not been anything special in the last one year. At the same time, some new names like Upendra Yadav and Saurabh Kumar can also be seen in the team, who are continuously performing brilliantly in domestic cricket.
