Tigers get little respite
The Tigers will get little respite as they will travel to South Africa next week to play a full series including two Tests, three- ODIs and two T20s against the Protease.
The team is expected to fly for South Africa on September 16, and will start their campaign with a tour-opening three-day warm-up match in Benoni from September 21.
Earlier, the Tigers have toured South Africa twice before for two-Test series in 2002 and 2008, and have suffered innings defeats in all four matches in the pace-friendly conditions.
There will be no pre-series training camp planed for the South Africa series as the cricketers had already underwent in the nearly month-and-a-half conditioning and skills camp before their just concluded home series against Australia.
