Indian cricket will begin its new season with a five-match T20I series against South Africa in Delhi on Thursday, June 9, 2022.
The Indians will aim to create a world record for the most consecutive victories in T20 Internationals in the series opener.
Currently, India hold the record jointly with Afghanistan and Romania with 12 successive wins.
Head Coach Rahul Dravid oversaw proceedings as the K L Rahul-led team started preparations with their first nets session at the Arun Jaitely stadium in Delhi on Monday.
Hardik Pandya was missing from the nets as he has not joined the team yet along with Harshal Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal.
