The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the Test, ODI, and T20I squads for India's upcoming tour of South Africa on Thursday, November 30.

BCCI disclosed that Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli requested for a break from the white-ball leg of the series, which is why they will only feature in the Test matches. Rohit will lead the team in the red ball games, while Suryakumar Yadav will continue to captain the T20 team.

In Rohit's absence, KL Rahul will captain the team in the three ODIs. After missing the 2023 World Cup, fan-favorite Sanju Samson has made a comeback into the ODI squad.

Veteran batters Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara failed to find a place in the Test squad as the selectors opted for youngsters. Rising stars like Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Yashasvi Jaiswal made the cut.
