The multi-format tour kicks off with a three-match T20I series on December 10, 12 and 14. The next assignment will be a three-match ODI series - the first 50-over tournament for both nations since the conclusion of the 2023 World Cup. The two-match Boxing Day series will be India's second red-ball series in the World Test Championship (WTC) 2023-25 cycle.

Following the announcement of the intriguing fixtures, Indian Cricket Board secretary Jay Shah said in a media release: “The Freedom Series is significant not just because it features two excellent Test teams, but also because it honors Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela, two great leaders who shaped our respective nations and the world around them."

"The Boxing Day Test and the New Year Test are amongst the most important fixtures on the international cricket calendar and the schedule has been planned particularly around these marquee dates. India has always received strong support in South Africa, and I am confident that fans will be treated to some enthralling contests with no shortage of intensity," Shah added.
