Indian cricket team will be in Australia for close to three months and two proud cricketing nations will engage in one of the most keenly awaited tours in recent times. Virat Kohli & Co will play three T20Is, four Tests and three ODIs.
With Australia missing their two top batsmen in Steve Smith and David Warner, the upcoming tour presents India a golden chance to do well Down Under. India have won series in the limited overs' formats, but a Test series win remains elusive.
