Last updated on: December 02, 2013 21:29 IST

Team IndiaIndia face a tough assignment when they clash with South Africa, in their own backyard, starting with the ODI series on December 5.

While India are the reigning World Cup and ICC Champions Trophy winners, South Africa are the No. 1 team in the Test format and will be looking to continue their domination at home against the visitors.

India will be on a high having beaten West Indies in both the Test and ODI series at home, while South Africa lost at home to Pakistan 1-2 in the ODI series.
