Kolkata: The South African and Indian cricket teams landed in the city on Tuesday for the third Twenty20 International outing at the Eden Gardens here on October 8.
Ringed by a heavy cordon of security personnel, the two sides flew into the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport at around 1.50 pm and were driven straight to a posh five star hotel.
South Africa have already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. The visitors would seek to keep up the winning momentum and make it a clean sweep ahead of the five-game ODI and four-match Test series.
On the other hand, the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Indian outfit will try to salvage some pride in the dead rubber and raise their confidence level for the coming engagements.
