Embarking on a redemption journey after their ODI World Cup 2023 final defeat, Team India displayed their prowess by securing a 4-1 victory over Australia in a five-match T20I series. Guided by the leadership of Suryakumar Yadav, the squad showcased stellar performances from players such as Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rinku Singh, and Axar Patel.

The focus now shifts to India's upcoming challenge – an all-format tour of South Africa. Starting on December 10, the series includes three T20Is, followed by an equal number of ODIs commencing on December 17. The cricketing extravaganza concludes with a two-match Test series beginning on December 26.

To manage player workload, regular captain Rohit Sharma and batting maestro Virat Kohli have been rested for the white-ball series, reserving their participation solely for the Test matches. Suryakumar Yadav will lead the team in the T20Is, while KL Rahul will take charge in the ODIs.

Notably, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal and wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson, absent during the World Cup and the Australia series, have successfully made their comeback, bolstering the team for the ODIs. The stage is set for an exciting clash between the cricketing giants, promising captivating encounters across all formats.
