This Gesture of Mayank Agarwal Before Leaving For South Africa Has Won Many Hearts: After defeating the World Test Champions New Zealand on home soil in the recently concluded Test series, the Indian cricket team is all set to lock horns with South Africa in the upcoming bilateral series. The tour will consist of three Tests matches and as many ODIs, kickstarting from December 26, 2021. The team is scheduled to travel to South Africa this week but before flying to South Africa, the Indian cricket team and staff members entered quarantine in Mumbai.
