The Board of Control for Cricket in India and Cricket Australia have jointly announced the schedule for India’s upcoming Paytm home series against Australia.
In build-up to the ICC World Cup 2019 in England and Wales, the BCCI and Cricket Australia have agreed for Kangaroos tour of India for the limited overs series between February 24 and March 13.
Australia will start their tour with the two-match T20I series. The frist match is scheduled at the Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium on February 24. The five-match ODI series will start from Hyderabad on March 2.
The Australia-India ODI series will be over 10 days before the Indian Premier League 2019. The BCCI has confirmed that the IPL Season 12 will start form March 13. The final schedule and venues will, however, only be confirmed after the Lok Sabha polls dates are announced.
While BCCI has confirmed the fixtures for Australia series, there was no information on Zimbabwe series, that probably means that the series has been cancelled as India play their last match of New Zealand series on February 10 while the series against Australia kicks off on February 24, that leaves no room to host Zimbabwe. India were to play Zimbabwe in three ODIs and one Test match.
Indian team is currently in Australia for a full-fledged series. The tour has entered its last leg with the ODI series set to begin from January 12.
