In this article, we will take a look at everything you need to know about India tour of South Africa 2023-24.

India recently clinched victory in a thrilling 3-match T20I series against Australia at home, showcasing their prowess even with a second-string squad. As they gear up for the South Africa series, anticipation is high, with three T20Is, three ODIs, and two Tests lined up. Notably, senior players Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are rested for the white-ball series but will join the squad for the crucial Test matches, which are part of the World Test Championship 2023.

In the absence of Kohli and Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav will continue to lead the T20I side, while KL Rahul takes charge of the ODI team. The significance of this series cannot be overstated, as India have never secured a Test series victory in South Africa. The challenge is clear, and the team aims to bolster its records in both ODIs and Tests, having already established a leading record in T20Is.
