IND Vs SA 2021-22 ODI & Test Match, Schedule and Live Score

How To Play

Cricket, the enthralling bat and ball sport has been a trendsetter, though introduced centuries ago. The internationally acknowledged sport is now going to spill its charm in the South African land. Currently, the Indian Cricket Team is all set to migrate to South Africa to contest in the upcoming Test cricket series and One Day International (ODI) matches. 

The playoffs between India Vs South Africa is scheduled from December, 2021 to January, 2022. There are a total three Test matches and three ODI matches as per the announced schedule. These matches played between Ind Vs SA will be a part of the ICC World Test Championship (2021-2023); and the match between Ind Vs SA ODI will contribute to the final ICC Cricket World Cup Super League (2021-2023) respectively.

The most awaited merger of Ind Vs SA ODI and Test Series is going to be a captivating and breathtaking watch for all international fans. Due to the ongoing pandemic, it was intricate for the administrative body to finalise the venue and schedule for the India Vs South Africa sport series.

After rounds of discussion, the restrictions imposed on the selected venues were lifted off. In November 2021, the South African Cricket Council shifted the venue of the match between Ind Vs SA from Johannesburg to the Wanderers Stadium and Newlands Cricket Ground.

However, the dilemma regarding the selection of venues prevailed. With the advent of the new variant of COVID-19 and Omicron in South Africa, the Board of Control for Cricket in India averred that they will be assessing the condition and derive a clear picture of the ground conditions in South Africa. Finally, on 4 December 2021, after compliance with the Indian and South African Cricket Administration Boards, an updated schedule was drafted on mutual grounds.
