India vs South Africa T20I series: All you need to know about Rohit Sharma’s India vs Temba Bavuma-led SA
While South Africa has announced the squad for both the T20Is and the ODIs, India is yet to announce the ODI squad. As for the T20Is, the Indian team will be led by Rohit Sharma, whereas Temba Bavuma will be in charge of the Proteas.
Just a couple of days after winning the three-match T20I against world champions Australia, Rohit Sharma’s Team India will take on Temba Bavuma-led South Africa in a three-match T20I series followed by same number of ODIs beginning in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday (September 28). India will look to continue their winning run after a lacklustre showing in the Asia Cup 2022 earlier this month where they failed to make the final.
The Proteas had last toured India in June, where the series ended in a 2-2 draw after the decider was washed out. South Africa have also been in good form recently, as they’ve won four consecutive matches, of the last five T20I games that they have played. They bagged a 2-0 win against Ireland in August after defeating England by 2-1 in July. This will also be the third time that the two teams will face each other in the ongoing calendar year.
