South Africa will lock horns with India in a three match Test series which is a part of the ICC Test Championship after the closure of the ongoing T20I series.
The Proteas succumbed to seven wickets defeat to India in Mohali and will now go face to face with the men in blue in the final T20I match at Bangaluru on Sunday. The first T20I match between the two heavyweights was rained out at Dharamshala.
