The South African cricket team has landed in India of their T20I and Test series. The T20I leg will commence the series from 15 September in Dharamsala.

The entire South African team arrived in India today and will be staying in New Delhi for the next couple of days. They will be meeting the South African High Commissioner in the capital city on Monday and move to Dharamsala the same day.

They will have a good 5 days at their hands to practice at the venue and come hard at the Indians. They have a new captain in Quinton de Kock for the T20I series and a new interim team director in Enoch Nkwe. This tour will be the first assignments for both of them and will be a tough challenge.

Fast bowler Kagiso Rabada tweeted soon after landing in India.

The South African cricket board has picked a 14-member squad for the shortest format.

South Africa squad for three T20Is: Quinton de Kock (c), Rassie van der Dussen (vc), Temba Bavuma, Junior Dala, Bjorn Fortuin, Beuran Hendricks, Reeza Hendricks, David Miller, Anrich Nortje, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, George Linde.
