The four T20Is that were part of the original schedule will be “rescheduled for a more opportune time,” a CSA release said
Paarl and Cape Town will host the three-match ODI series between South Africa and India in January 2022. The first two games will be played at Boland Park on January 19 and January 21 followed by the series finale at Newlands on January 23. However, the three-match series will not be part of the Men’s World Cup Super League and will instead be played as a bilateral series.
The four T20Is that were also part of the original schedule will be “rescheduled for a more opportune time in the new year,” a CSA release said.
There had been doubts around the tour because of the Omicron variant of Covid-19 discovered in South Africa, which has coincided with a surge in cases and hospitalisations, especially in the Gauteng province where India are scheduled to play the first two Tests.
When exactly the BCCI and CSA agree to play the four T20Is remains to be seen as another T20 World Cup is approaching in 2022, and both teams already have packed schedules for 2022.
