The India Women vs South Africa series is expected to be longer than at least a month given the quarantine protocols in India and also the need for the players to be in a bio-secure bubble throughout the series. The ODI and T20I series will also be held at limited venues, and perhaps behind closed doors, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Since the 2020 T20I World Cup, most of the Indian cricketers only played the Women’s T20 Challenge held in UAE alongside the IPL last November. The Women’s T20 Challenge was a four-team tournament, played in the same format as the IPL. The cricketers have since been out of action.
