Written by Shreyas Vyas

Team India will host South Africa for five T20 Internationals starting from June 9 and the board has asked its players to assemble in Delhi, the venue for the first T20I, on June 5. The South African team will arrive in New Delhi on June 2.

There will be no crowd restrictions and there will be no bio-bubble for the series, though players will be tested regularly for COVID-19. The other venues are Cuttack (June 12), Visakhapatnam (June 14), Rajkot (June 17), and Bengaluru (June 19).

”The Indian team will assemble here on June 5 while the South Africans land in Delhi on June 2,” DDCA joint secretary Rajan Manchanda said.

The Indian cricketers are in the middle of a much-needed break post a two-month-long IPL. KL Rahul will lead the team in the absence of Rohit Sharma, who has been rested along with senior members, including Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami.
