Fresh off a successful Australian T20I series on home turf, Team India led by Suryakumar Yadav will look to keep the momentum going against a Proteas team that is currently in the middle of a rebuilding process in the India vs South Africa T20 International series 2023.


Overall, there will be three T20 internationals and three one-day internationals. India will be without key players for the white-ball matches, with regular captain Rohit Sharma and former captain Virat Kohli rested ahead of the Test matches.
