The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), on Wednesday, announced the complete schedule of their upcoming limited-overs series against Australia and South Africa. The white-ball fixtures will take place from September 20 to October 11 before all three teams travel to Australia for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022, starting October 16.
India will start their home season with a three-match T20I series against Australia. The Men in Blue will face Aussies in Mohali, Nagpur and Hyderabad on September 20, 23 and 25, respectively.
The action will then move on to Thiruvananthapuram, Guwahati and Indore, where India will take on South Africa in three T20Is on September 28, October 1, and October 4.
After the T20I leg against the Proteas, both sides will lock horns in the three-match ODI series, starting October 6. But, due to the T20 World Cup, it remains to be seen whether both India and South Africa will field their first-choice players in the ODI fixtures.
“Mohali will host the first T20I against Australia, with Nagpur and Hyderabad hosting the second and third, respectively. The home series against South Africa will begin in Thiruvananthapuram. The second T20I will be played on October 2, 2022, Gandhi Jayanti, to mark the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi at Guwahati, followed by the last T20I at Indore. The action will then shift to Lucknow on October 6, where the ODI series will get underway. Ranchi and Delhi will host the second and third ODI, respectively,” read a BCCI statement.
