Ind vs SA, India vs South Africa Test Series 2019 Schedule, Time Table, Fixtures, Date: After failing to wrap up the T20I series on a winning note, the Virat Kohli-led Indian unit would look to start afresh in the longer formats. India are scheduled to play a three-match Test series against the Proteas, which starts from Wednesday.
However, the Indian unit suffered a major setback as star bowler Jasprit Bumrah was ruled out of the 15-man Test squad after being hit with a back injury. Umesh Yadav has been called as a replacement for the world no 3 in Test, who has been laid low by a minor stress fracture in his lower back.
