India vs South Africa: When and where to watch first Test live

South Africa, where the Omicron variant of the coronavirus was first detected last month, has tightened virus protocols to ensure that the series goes smoothly.

A leading batter facing unparalleled pressure on and off the field, a new coach looking to shed his ‘good boy’ image and get the team off to a good start, and a fire-breathing pacer ready to lead a strong bowling attack against an opposition ready for a tough contest — India’s tour of South Africa is primed for overarching narratives.

Despite its recent overseas successes, India have never won a Test series in South Africa. The opportunity to finally change the historical narrative of the team struggling in African conditions will be the key focus for Virat Kohli’s team as they embark on the tour, spending another month in a bio-bubble amid the threat of the new Omicron variant.

The three-Test series will go ahead, starting in Centurion on Sunday, despite the threat of the new coronavirus variant. South Africa, where the variant was first detected last month, has tightened virus protocols to ensure that the series goes smoothly.

India’s preparations for the Test series had been side-tracked by a public spat between its red-ball captain and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President and former India skipper Sourav Ganguly following the Delhi batter’s removal as One Day International captain. There were even reports that Kohli had decided to sit out the series to spend his daughter’s first birthday at home. However, those rumours proved to be unfounded and the Royal Challengers Bangalore batter will lead Team India in hostile territory.
