The Indian cricket team arrived in Durban, South Africa, on Wednesday, but not all players are there yet. Ravindra Jadeja, who’s been touring Europe, hasn’t reached South Africa, and a few others are also flying in from Europe. Jadeja is the vice-captain for the three T20Is.

Why Gill not travelling with team India.

According to sources from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), star opener Shubman Gill is joining the team from the UK. Gill took a holiday after the World Cup final on November 19.

Deepak Chahar didn’t travel with the team due to a family issue; his father is unwell. It’s uncertain when Chahar will join the team, but sources suggest it could be soon. No replacement has been named for him yet. Chahar is also part of the One-Day team.

All these players, along with a member of the support staff, got permission from BCCI to join the team. They are expected to be in Durban before the first match on December 10.

Two selectors, SS Das and Salil Ankola, are also flying to South Africa. The BCCI decided to send two selectors because of multiple teams and matches, including T20Is, ODIs, Tests, and three India A games.

Since arriving in Durban, the Indian team will have their first training session on Friday morning at the Kingsmead ground. The series kicks off with a Twenty20 match on December 10, followed by two more T20Is on December 12 and 14. Then, three ODIs are scheduled for December 17, 19, and 21. The first Test starts on Boxing Day at Centurion, and the second and final Test is at Newlands in Cape Town from January 3. There will also be three India A games between December 11-14, December 20-22, and December 26-29.
