The series, comprising five ODIs and three T20Is, will mark the Indian team's return to competitive cricket after almost 12 months.

Both teams will be arriving in Lucknow on February 25 and will undergo a six-day quarantine.

A 22-member Indian team has been picked for the contest but is yet to be announced. The PTI reported the development on Monday.

"We got the go ahead from the BCCI yesterday. It is a big series considering our team last played 12 month ago. We are looking forward to hosting it," UPCA secretary Yudhvir Singh told PTI.

The ODI, all of them day-games, will be played on March 7, 9, 12, 14 and 17 and will be followed by the T20 matches on March 20, 21 and 24 with the first two games to be played under lights at the Ekana International Stadium.

Both the teams will get less than a week to train before the series opener due to quarantine protocol. South Africa played recently but India have not played any international match since the T20 World Cup in March last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The only outing of the Indian players since that T20 World Cup final in Melbourne was during the exhibition Women's T20 Challenge in Sharjah in November last year.

The series was earlier supposed to be held at the Greenfield Sports Hub Stadium in Thiruvanthapuram but Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) expressed its inability to stage the matches as the stadium owners had booked an Army recruitment drive on the same dates.
