The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Cricket South Africa (CSA) announced the fixtures for South Africa’s tour of India which runs from the end of September to the beginning of December, 2015. 

I am delighted to confirm, together with the BCCI, the Proteas’ itinerary for our tour of India later this year.This will be the longest tour that we have undertaken to India and the first time we will play a four-Test series. Both countries are now working to develop this into an icon series. Another first is that we will be playing our first T20 International match against India in India, said CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat.

Of note will be the second Test match to be played in Bangalore where South Africa previously secured our only ever Test Series win over India in India in 2000. If all works out this will be AB de Villiers’ 100th Test match and it could not be a more appropriate venue as it has become AB’s second home through his involvement with the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Being a landmark tour in the young history of Cricket South Africa, I wish to thank the BCCI for all the hard work that has been put in to scheduling this tour and I now look forward to the Test series becoming an iconic one, Lorgat added.

The tour will last for 72 days and consist of three T20 International matches, five ODIs and four Test matches.
