The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday (January 10) disclosed the itinerary for Australia's upcoming limited-overs tour to India.
Australia will play two T20Is and five ODIs in India. The series is considered as a handy option for both the teams to get their combination right ahead of the ICC World Cup 2019, scheduled to be held in England from May 30 to July 14.
The limited-overs series will kickstart in Bengaluru with the first Twenty20 International on February 24 while Vizag will host the second shortest format game on February 27. Subsequently, the five ODIs will be staged in Hyderabad, Nagpur, Ranchi, Mohali and Delhi on March 2, March 5, March 8, March 10 and March 13 respectively.
The Indian cricket team is currently touring Australia where they will feature in a three-match ODI series from January 12. After the tour down under, India will travel to New Zealand for five ODIs and three T20Is.
