As per the latest reports, the Australian cricket team is all set to tour India ahead of the T20 World Cup. Australia are all set to battle India in a three-game T20I series, serving as the preparatory ground for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
The T20 World Cup 2022 will be played in Australia during the months of October and November. The hosts will enter the mega-event as the defending champions after lifting their maiden T20 title in the 2021 edition in the UAE. Meanwhile, India, who crashed out of the group stage last season, will be eyeing the redemption with a strong out this time around.
The T20I series will be a must-watch event as two of the strongest cricketing powerhouses will collide in the most-exiting format of the game. While Australia’s stocks in the T20 cricket have been on the rise in the last couple of years, India currently are on a 12-game winning streak in the T20Is. In 2020, India locked horns with the Australian team on their home soil and walked with a 2-1 victory.
Australia to play three T20Is on the Indian soil
As per a report released by foxsports.com.au., “Australia will play a number of white ball series with home games against Zimbabwe, New Zealand, West Indies, and England coming to either side of three T20s in India in September.”
For the unversed, the Australian cricket team is also scheduled to tour India in February and March 2023 to play a four-Test series. As far as India are concerned, they are set to host South Africa in a five-T20I series post-IPL.
With the T20 World Cup scheduled later this year, all cricketing sides will play a plethora of T20 matches ahead of the tournament. India are no different in this case, as they already have multiple assignments scheduled after hosting the Proteas. India will play Ireland, England, and West Indies in the back-to-back series.
