The tour which was scheduled to begin on 17th December will now kick off on December 26 with the first test of the series to be played between India & South Africa. Both the boards have engaged in prolonged negotiations over the destiny of the tour which came under doubt because of the outbreak of the serious Omricon virus, a variant of COVID-19 in South African countries.
