India are set to
take on South Africa in a one-off Twenty20 international on March 30 in
Johannesburg to commemorate the 150 years of settlement of Indians in that
country, it has been learnt.

"The same squad (Asia Cup squad),
with a few changes, will leave for South Africa on the 28th of March to
play a one-off T20 international on March 30 to celebrate 150 years of
Indian settlement. The invitation from the SA board has been accepted by
BCCI," sources said here on Monday.

Senior batsman Sachin
Tendulkar, who does not play T20 internationals, is unlikely to be part of
the squad and in his place Karnataka's Robin Uthappa is expected to get
the nod.

The Asia Cup is scheduled between March 11 and 22 and
the one-off T20 in South Africa at the Wanderers ground will be preceding
the Indian Premier League tournament commencing on April 4.
