India is back on Australian soil this summer, keen to atone for their World Cup semi-final loss to Australia in March.
Virat Kohli and his men return to take on the Aussies in four Victoria Bitter One-Day International and three KFC T20 Internationals.
Just months since their agonising defeat to Australia in the World Cup semi-final, fans will have the chance to catch India in action against Steve Smith’s side in six Australian cities.
The five-match Victoria Bitter ODI series begins in Perth on January 12 before heading to Brisbane, Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney.
The ODI series is followed by the explosive action of a three-match KFC T20 INTL series in Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne, beginning on Australia Day and Indian Republic Day on January 26. These matches will be played as a double header, with the Australian women’s team, the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars, facing the Indian women’s team before the men’s match. Tickets to the KFC T20 INTL provide access to both matches.
Few series are as hotly contested as those between India and Australia. And with World Cup defeat fresh in the memory, India return to Australia with added purpose.
For fans, it’ll be a long three-year wait to watch the cricket powers take on each other again if they miss out this summer.
