India-South Africa women’s series likely from March 7

The upcoming ODI and a T20I rubber between India and South Africa senior women team is likely to begin from March 7 in either Lucknow or Kanpur in a bio-bubble environment.

The series will feature five T20Is and three ODIs and a 22-member Indian team has been picked for it.

Although fixtures of the series is yet to be announced, a Cricket South Africa (CSA) official has already confirmed that their team is set to travel to India this week. He also said that the mandatory COVID tests have also been done and the team will depart anytime soon.

Significantly, both the teams will have to serve a six-day quarantine period which means they will get a week of training before the series opener.

As the series will be played in a bio-bubble, the team needs to assemble at least two weeks before the first game with six days reserved for their quarantine.

Earlier, the series was scheduled to be held at the Greenfield Sports Hub Stadium in Thiruvanthapuram. However, the Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) expressed its inability to stage the matches as the stadium has been booked for an Army recruitment drive.
