The Indian cricket team will arrive in South Africa on December 2, 2013 and will play the first ODI at the Wanderers on December 5. After the 3 ODIs, the Indians will play a two-day practice game in Benoni as a preparation to the first Test, which begins on December 18, also at the Wanderers in Johannesburg.
