BCCI announces schedule for India`s T-20I, ODI home series vs Australia

"The series will comprise two T20Is that will start at 1 PM (IST) and five ODIs, which will start from 7 PM (IST)", a BCCI statement said on Thursday. The series is slated to begin from February 24 and will go on till March 13, 2019.

As per the fixture released by the BCCI, the Twenty-20 matches will be played on February 24 and February 27 in Bengaluru and Visakhapatnam, respectively. The second ODI will be contested in Nagpur on March 5, Tuesday, while Ranchi will host the third ODI on March 8, Friday. The venues for the last two ODIs are Mohali and Delhi. Even as the T20I series was drawn, the visiting team, captained by Virat Kohli, won the Test series 2-1 after victories in Adelaide and Melbourne respectively.

India toured South Africa and England in 2018 but lost Test series in both countries.


Australia will channel the spirit of Allan Border's triumphant 1986 side that won against India when they step out in a classic green and gold kit this month. They would again lock horns with the Aussies, this time in a home T20I and ODI series from the last week of February.

While Dhawan and Rayudu prepared with both the right and left arm throwdown specialists, Dhoni worked in the indoor nets with assistant coach Sanjay Bangar.
