IND vs SA 2022: India and South Africa series will get underway from 9th June. The T20I series will consist of five T20Is. This series will see the return of cricket without any bio-bubbles. Many players have complained and have also withdrawn from many series due to the mental toll that bio bubble takes.
Although there will be a COVID test for every player they don’t have to live in a bio bubble after testing negative. Before the series, the BCCI wants the entire squad to demonstrate their fitness. The Indian board has requested that the KL Rahul-led squad report to the NCA by June 5 for a fitness test ahead of the five-match T20 series against South Africa.
After finishing IPL obligations, the 18-member squad would convene at the NCA by June 5. They will participate in a fitness program under the direction of VVS Laxman and physio Nitin Patel. They will fly out to Delhi on June 7 after the short camp, ahead of the opening match on June 9.
After the South African series, the Indian Team will fly to England for playing the rescheduled test match which was postponed due to COVID.
The South Africa management would look to strengthen their bench strength as there is a T20 World Cup lined up this year. For India, BCCI have rested many senior players and have given opportunities to the young players. Players like Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik, and Ravi Bishnoi would look ahead to give their best performance.
This series will see the return of star all-rounder Hardik Pandya. The pace all-rounder led Gujarat Titans to their maiden cup in their maiden season. GT defeated Sanju Samson and led Rajasthan Royals in a low-scoring match.
The five-match T20I series against South Africa will be played from June 9 to June 19 in India. The Indian team will fly from Bengaluru to Delhi on June 7 for the first T20I on June 9, while the last match of the series will be played in Bengaluru on 19th June.
