India cricket 2022 fixtures: South Africa tour, T20 World Cup and more

Men in blue look to end nine-year wait for a major trophy

The year 2021 was a mixed bag for the Indian cricket team. While they enjoyed another famous Test series win in Australia and were 2-1 ahead in their shortened Test series in England, their year will be remembered more for their defeat in the World Test Championship final to New Zealand and their capitulation at the T20 World Cup in the UAE.

It was another year where a major ICC trophy eluded them as Virat Kohli began to move away from the leadership positions - first with the Royal Challengers Bangalore and then India's T20 captaincy.

The next year will provide another shot at a world title - there are ICC events lined up every year for the foreseeable future. Australia will host the T20 World Cup they couldn't in 2020 due to the pandemic and India's record in the country should fill them with hope of ending their nine-year trophy drought.

There is a full tour of South Africa at the beginning of the year, which now has a question mark next to it after the emergence of a new Covid variant.

Sri Lanka feature regularly in India's 2022 calendar, which also includes tour of England and a home series against the Aussies right before the World Cup.
