The tour will begin for SA with a warm-up one-day game against the Board President's XI, followed by the ODI leg (June 16 to 23), the only Test (June 28 to July 1) and then the T20Is (July 5 to 9).

The one-day internationals will be played in Bengaluru, while the one-off Test as well as T20Is will be held in Chennai. This will be the first time in nearly a decade that the two teams will face off for a Test match - the last occasion was back in November 2014.

The white-ball games were originally slated to be held in late 2023, but they had to be postponed because of the ICC ODI World Cup held in India last year. The one-off Test, however, is an addition to the tour and part of an initiative by the BCCI and Cricket South Africa to give a fillip to women's Test cricket.

India's last two Test outings both resulted in landmark victories. The Harmanpreet Kaur-led side played a Test match each against England and Australia in December 2023, and won them by 347 runs and eight wickets, respectively.
