After the T20I series against Australia, India play their final T20I series, ahead of the T20 World Cup, against South Africa starting Wednesday. Kerala’s Thiruvananthapuram will host the first T20I of the three-match series. Ahead of the match, the whole city is buzzing in anticipation of a great game of cricket. A video, posted by the BCCI on social media, showed cricketers getting a grand welcome in the city. While all the Indian cricketers will be cheered on by the fans, former Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli seems to be a crowd-favourite.
