BCCI on Thursday announced India's squads for the upcoming tour of South Africa. The Men in Blues will play three T20Is, as many ODIs, and two Tests. The three-match T20I series is scheduled to begin on December 10. Both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli will not take part in the white ball formats.

Rohit will lead the team in the Test series. KL Rahul will lead the ODI side while Suryakumar Yadav will continue to lead in T20Is as all-rounder Hardik Pandya has sustained an injury during the World Cup. Shubman Gill will also make a return in the t20i series

Sanju Samson is back in the ODI squad and so is Rajat Patidar. Sai Sudharsan earned his maiden India call-up for the three-match ODI series that also features leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal. Gill is part of the T20Is and the Tests while Surya will return home after leading India in the T20Is. Bumrah will join the squad for the two-match Test series starting December 26.

"Shami is currently undergoing medical treatment and his availability is subject to fitness," said BCCI. KL Rahul will make a return as a wicketkeeper in the Test squad. Jaiswal held on to his place as an opener for his superb outing in the West Indies.
