Cricket Australia has confirmed the changes to the eagerly anticipated Vodafone Test series, Dettol ODI Series and Dettol Twenty20 International Series between the Australian and Indian men’s teams.
The men’s international summer will commence with the three-match Dettol ODI Series at the Sydney Cricket Ground on November 27 and 29 before heading to Manuka Oval in Canberra for the third match on December 2.
After the ODI series, the three-match Dettol T20 International Series will begin at Manuka Oval on December 4. The teams will then travel to Sydney and play the final two T20 matches at the Sydney Cricket Ground on December 6 and 8.
Both white ball series will be keenly contested. The Australian men’s team is fresh from an away ODI series win over world champions England, while India holds a slight edge over its rival in the 50-over format with a 12-11 win-loss record against Australia over the past five years.
The Australian men’s team is currently ranked No. 1 in the world in the ICC’s T20I rankings and posted a thrilling 2-0 away series win over India last year. India, however, holds a 5-4 win-loss advantage over Australia in its past ten T20I matches.
India’s squad will arrive in Sydney on November 12 subject to Australian Border Force travel authorisation and the appropriate departure-approvals. The team will quarantine in Sydney prior to the first match of the series on November 27.
