South Africa’s ODI skipper AB de Villiers and rest of the South African squad who have reached Delhi are geared up for the upcoming marathon series against India. They are all set to kick-off their seventy-two-day tour to India with the heat up T20 recreation towards India A on Tuesday at New Delhi.
The Proteas squad, which is a mix of several experienced and young players, only touched down at the capital city on Sunday afternoon, but with the match a little over 24 hours away, have already started their practice sessions.

Many of the squad might still be feeling the effects of the 13-hour long flight from Johannesburg to New Delhi and add to that the hot and humid conditions in the Indian subcontinent, compared to the comfortable weather over in South Africa, but the visitors are sweating it out hard in the nets already.
Meanwhile, Abraham Benjamin “AB” de Villiers offered a sneak peek into the dressing room at the end of the first practice session after arriving in India.
Watch it here:
“We’re in Delhi, our first training session is about to start in a couple of hours. The boys are looking good, although it is very hot and sunny it is not so bad, everything is going quite good. Looking forward to a trip that is going to be very long and challenge. The first warm-up match begins tomorrow so I’m very excited to get out there and hit a few balls,” De Villiers said, before heading into the dressing room with his handy cam, much to the amusement of the rest of his teammates.
