There were doubts about the tour over the Omicron variant of Covid-19 discovered in South Africa, which coincided with a surge in cases and hospital admissions, particularly in Gauteng Province, where India is slated to conduct the first two tests.

The Netherlands had recently canceled their tour of three ODIs and flown home as many countries, particularly within the European Union, had imposed travel restrictions on southern Africa.

CSA had also postponed three games of the fourth round of the four-day Division 2 games after some players tested positive. The one-day games, due to take place on December 16, have also been postponed to 2022.

However, India A's squad touring South Africa has stayed in the country for three four-day games in Bloemfontein. The third game began on Monday.

When exactly BCCI and CSA agree to play the four T20Is remains to be seen, as another T20 World Cup is approaching in 2022 and both teams already have a busy schedule for 2022.
