India vs South Africa: How did India’s previous innings go? – Magazine Creations

India vs South Africa: The stage is set for India’s tour of South Africa and the young Indian team has already arrived in Durban on December 6. The series includes 3 T20 Internationals from 10 December, 3 One Day Internationals (ODIs) from 17 December, and 2 Test matches from 26 December. The T20 and Test format matches will be more important for Team India ahead of next year’s T20 World Cup and from the point of view of the ICC World Test Championship.

In the 2023 ICC World Cup, India and South Africa put up some strong performances, but both teams failed to finish the tournament due to their obvious shortcomings. As India embarks on another series in South Africa, let’s take a look at the previous record, when India went away for a cricket series.

India vs South Africa: How did India’s previous innings go?

1. 1992/93: Mohammad Azharuddin led India in the first tour of South Africa where the two teams clashed in four Test matches and 7 ODI matches. The results were not in India’s favor as three matches were drawn while South Africa managed to win one test. In the ODI series, South Africa defeated India 5-2.

2. 1996/1997: Similar results were seen in India’s subsequent tour of South Africa where India lost the three-match Test series 2-0.

3. 2001/2002: The 2001/02 results were no different from the previous ones as India lost the three-match Test series 2-0 to South Africa.

4. 2006/07: It was in Johannesburg when things started to change for Team India. Thanks to a stunning spell by Indian pacer S Sreesanth, Team India registered their first ever Test win in South Africa. India lost the Test series 1-2 as well as the ODI series by 0-4 but still the performance raised hopes among the Indian fans.

5. 2010/11: The Indian cricket team successfully tamed South Africa’s Test talent during the 2010-11 tour. Under the captaincy of MS Dhoni, India managed to equalize the Test series 1-1.

6. 2013/14: This was one of the most disastrous tours of South Africa by the Indian cricket team as the Indian team failed to win even a single match during that tour. India lost the ODI series 2-0 and the Test series 1-0.

7. 2017/18: Under the leadership of young Virat Kohli, Team India embarked on another tour of South Africa and managed to clinch the ODI series this time. But the team was unlucky when it came to the Test series which the team lost 2-1.

8. 2021/22: This was the last time India and South Africa faced off on South African soil and the Proteas continued their superiority in the Test format of the game as they once again defeated India 2-1 during their last tour.
