South Africa will take on India in the third and final match of their Test Series between 11 and 15 January 2022.
The Proteas beat India's Men In Blue by seven wickets late on day four at Imperial Wanderers in Johannesburg on Thursday to ensure the Test  Series was level at 1-1.
The victory set up a decider for the final Test in Cape Town where the Men In Blue will be seeking revenge when they face a confident Proteas side.

South Africa lost the opening match by 113 runs at SuperSport Park in Centurion in a match in which saw Rishabh Pant become the fastest wicket-keeper for India, in terms of innings, to effect 100 dismissals in Tests.
However, the Proteas put that defeat behind them with a well-deserved win at the Imperial Wanderers, their first over India at the venue in five attempts as Duanne Olivier took his 50th Test wicket.
The Proteas will be hoping that Olivier replicates the same form when they take on the Men In Blue, who are currently the number one ranked side in the ICC Test Match Rankings.
While South Africa captain Dean Elgar, who led the way with an unbeaten 96 in the second Test match, will be keen to lead his troops to a series win over India.
On the other hand, Mohammed Shami, who took his 200th wicket in Tests as India defeated South Africa in the first Test match, will be keen to inspire the Men In Blue to a win.

“I don’t think there’s much between the two teams going into Cape Town,” former Proteas all-rounder Vernon Philander said ahead of the third Test match.
“The last Test would have given South Africa a massive boost on all fronts. Very often that is all that you need, one win as a team to give you that confidence and momentum. 
"They will feel they now have that behind them and they can go on to win the series. Coming to Newlands, one of our favourite hunting grounds," he continued. 
"I’m really looking forward to the final Test. It’s going to be a cracker."
