Team are currently busy playing the ICC Men's T20 World Cup and have progressed to the Super 8 stage. After the World Cup, India are scheduled to play a number of international matches, both home and away. The second half of 2024 is stacked with blockbuster international cricket. India are scheduled to play couple of Test series at home against Bangladesh and New Zealand, the Border-Gavaskar Trophy down under and a four-match T20 tour of South Africa.

On June 21, 2024, Cricket South Africa announced that the Indian team will be travelling to the rainbow nation for a four match series. This will be India's second consecutive year of travelling to South Africa for a white ball series. The matches are set to be held on November 8, 10, 13 and 15 in Durban, Gqeberha, Centurion and Johannesburg respectively. The series might see a second-string Indian side play the matches considering the fact that it has been scheduled between two Test series. Namibia skipper Gerhard Erasmus quickly took to X (formerly known as Twitter) and posted a request as soon as the announcement was made.

"Hey @BCCI , warm-up in Windhoek?," wrote Gerhard Erasmus

As far as Namibia's ICC Men's T20 World Cup campaign goes, the associate nation managed to win only one game in Group B against Oman. Among the many associate nations captains asking for more T20 matches against full members, Erasmus was one to voice his opinion. Captains of the associate nations want to test their respective teams to play against the cricketing juggernauts and perform better at global events such as the T20 World Cup. Oman skipper Aqib Ilyas and Scotland captain Richie Berrington also made the same request after their teams were knocked out from the first round of the tournament.

India are currently playing the T20 World Cup but they'll not have enough rest even after that. Soon after the culmination of the ICC event, the Indian team will take on Zimbabwe immediately in a five-match series starting July 6 which will be followed by a white-ball tour of Sri Lanka. As far as Namibia are concerned, they will have to play the regional qualifiers to qualify for the 2026 T20 World Cup.
