India to tour South Africa in August

There is a strong chance that India and South Africa may indulge in a three-match T20I series in August, subject to government clearance from both countries.

A report in ESPNCricinfo claims the series, not officially part of the FTP, was discussed by BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and CSA director of cricket Graeme Smith in February and was finalised Wednesday.

The news was confirmed by CSA acting chief executive Jacques Faul, who  revealed the development Thursday. However, final approval will only be given near August, since it cannot go ahead if the government of both countries do not give approval.

India last toured South Africa in early 2018. After losing the Test series 1-2, India roared back, registering a resounding 5-1 win in ODIs and a 2-1 win in T20Is.

The return leg took place last year when South Africa toured India for three T20Is in October, a series they lost 1-2. The three ODIs were to be held in February but after the first match was washed out, the series was called off due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
