South Africa last toured India in March 2021 for a five-match ODI series and a three-match T20I series. They won the ODI series 4-1, with Lizelle Lee and Jhulan Goswami leading the way with the bat and ball respectively. South Africa also claimed the T20I series 2-1 with Shafali Verma and Rajeshwari Gayakwad performing well for India.

It remains to be seen whether India can challenge South Africa more effectively this time.
