South Africa's tour of India
For its tour in India, the South African team will be taking part in three sets of three international matches, in T20, Test and ODI format. The T20 matches would be held in September 2019, in Dharamsala, Mohali and Bengaluru, while the matches in test format will be held in October, in Vishakhapatnam, Ranchi and Pune.
The South African team will then leave India after these series of matches only to return in 2020 for the ODIs. Of the aforementioned matches, the first one day international would be held in Dharamsala, the second in Lucknow and the third one in Kolkata.
Lucknow will host the pivotal second match for the ODI series between India and South Africa and the news instantly lifts our word-cup-dampen spirits. We cannot wait to watch Virat's aggressive batting and Bhuvaneshwar's incomparable bowling skills live, in action. So, mark the dates, because March is going to be epic!
