South Africa will be looking to avenge their 2018 home series defeat to India when they meet in the first ODI at Boland Park on January 19.
The last time the Men in Blue toured the Rainbow Nation they won 5-1 to record their first-ever ODI series victory in the country.
When the Proteas travelled to the subcontinent in 2020, the first ODI was rained off and the series subsequently had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

SA white-ball captain Temba Bavuma feels that righting the wrongs of four years ago will breed confidence in the team as they look to build up a head of steam for 2022.
"We will have to get things right in the next ODI series against India," Bavuma was quoted as saying by the Daily Maverick.
'I'm not too worried about what happened in that 2018 series. I'm more concerned about establishing our own style of play and implementing our strategy to good effect.

Chairman of selectors Chetan Sharma revealed that Rahul, who is vice-captain, was being groomed as a future leader of the team in all three formats of the game.
"We are looking at KL Rahul as a three-format player, and he has got good experience of captaincy," Sharma said in an online press interaction.
"He has proved his leadership qualities. That is what all selectors think. When Rohit is not fit, we thought KL is the best one to handle the side. We have good confidence in him, and we are grooming him."
