The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has kept the fans engaged with their social media posts ever since the Indian cricket team embarked on its South Africa tour.

The BCCI has been constantly sharing photos and videos of the Indian players on their social media from their training and net sessions in South Africa, as Team India is currently gearing up for the three-match Test series, starting on December 26 in Centurion.

Ahead of the Boxing Day encounter on December 26, the Indian team has taken part in a few net sessions in Centurion – the venue for the opening test – as the players are slowly trying to get used to the conditions on offer ahead of the much-awaited contest.

Well, India will not have the services of Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja, as they are currently undergoing rehab at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru.

Notably, KL Rahul will be Indian skipper Kohli's deputy in the three-match Test series against South Africa. Rohit is likely to return for the three-match ODI series in January 2022.
