It is the start of the series down-under as India is all set to start their rivalry against Australia. India will be involved in a 2-month long banter against the mighty Aussies which will involve a 3-match T20I series followed by a 4-match gruelling Test series and the tour will end with 3-match ODI series.
When: November 21, 01:30 PM IST
Where: The Gabba, Brisbane
The last time India travelled to Australia it was back in 2016 where they played a limited overs series which involved both ODI and T20I series. India lost the ODI series after putting up a great batting performance throughout the 5 matches but eventually lost the series 1-4.
They followed their good batting show in the 3-match T20I series and ended up blanking the Aussies 3-0. It was a heroic effort from Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh in the last game as India needed 17 runs off the final over to clinch a whitewash. The drubbing Australia got in that series was their first ever whitewash at home in 82 years in any format of the game.
With already many talks going around before the series, this would be an intriguing series for sure.
