The BCCI in its Apex meeting on Wednesday has decided that India and South Africa will play a 5-match T20I series as part of the FTP.
The venues have been finalized for the series and the schedule will be released after the IPL.
IPL is all set to start on March 26 and end on May 29 and just after 10 days India and South Africa will lock horns for the T20I series.
Cuttack, Vizag, Delhi, Rajkot and Chennai will be holding the 5 matches while the series will start on June 9 and end on June 19.

After this, India will depart for England to finish off the Test series and then play 6 white-ball games.
