The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Cricket South Africa (CSA) have decided that India will play three Tests and three ODIs on their tour of South Africa later this month. The first Test will start on December 26.

“CSA is also pleased to confirm that the allocation of match venues will still be in respect of the Bubble Safe Environment (BSEs) and therefore the decision on the allocations will take into account the need for safer playing environments. CSA has instituted these world class standards and measures to ensure that all players, staff and officials are protected within this environment. CSA’s main focus is to safeguard the cricket biosphere by managing strict entry standards and limited movement outside of its cordon. CSA will confirm the venues in the next 48 hours,” the South Africa board said.
