Later in the year, India is set to tour South Africa for a pivotal two-Test series in December 2023 to January 2024. This tour will serve as a significant indicator of India’s prowess as they face off against a formidable opponent on their home turf.
The calendar for 2024 features an intense showdown against England in a five-match Test series scheduled for January and February. With India hosting, the series promises high-octane cricketing action that fans eagerly await.
The action continues with a two-Test series against Bangladesh in September/October 2024, followed by a three-Test series against New Zealand in October/November 2024. These home fixtures will provide India with an opportunity to assert their dominance on familiar pitches.
