IND vs SA T20I series: India clinched an impressive 4-1 victory in the five-match T20I series against Australia following a devastating defeat in the World Cup Final on November 19. The Indian men’s cricket team, led by the top-ranked T20I batter Suryakumar Yadav, are gearing up to encounter South Africa in a three-match series. This series kicks off on December 10 at Kingsmead Stadium in Durban. While India have faced South Africa in bilateral T20I series previously, this year marks the first encounter in South Africa since 2017-18.

In the history of their T20I clashes, India have emerged triumphant 13 times out of 24 encounters. The last T20I match between the two teams during the 2022 T20 World Cup group stage ended in a heart-wrenching loss for India in Perth.

As the Men in Blue gear up for IND vs SA bilateral series, India aims to avenge that defeat. Here’s a glimpse of India’s performance in T20Is against South Africa:

The T20Is will be followed by the 50-over format, where Suryakumar won’t be involved. KL Rahul will take charge instead, while experienced players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are not in consideration for the white-ball format.

Finally, the tour will conclude with a two-match Test series, marking the return of Kohli and Rohit after the ODI World Cup. Senior pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami are also set to rejoin for the red-ball format, which is anticipated to be a closely contested series owing to the challenging South African conditions.
