The T20I and ODI series against Sri Lanka is set to kick off the home international season for team India on January 3 one week after their current tour of Bangladesh concludes on December 26.
Following that, a second ODI and T20I series against New Zealand will be played in January. Four Test matches and three ODIs will then be played against Australia in February and March, just before the IPL.
India will host Sri Lanka for three T20 Internationals on January 3 in Mumbai, three ODIs on January 10 in Guwahati, three ODIs on January 12 in Kolkata, and three T20 Internationals on January 7 in Rajkot (January 15). Three days later, on January 18, New Zealand’s tour of India gets underway with an ODI in Hyderabad.
From there, the sides head to Raipur for the second game on January 21, and Indore for the third game on January 24. The second ODI between India and New Zealand will be played at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Stadium in Raipur, the state capital of Chhattisgarh. In IPL 2013 and 2015, the city hosted Delhi Daredevils home matches.
On January 27 and 29, as well as February 1, India and New Zealand face off in three Twenty20 Internationals in Ranchi, Lucknow, and Ahmedabad.
The upcoming home season for team India
India will host New Zealand in a limited-overs series for the second time in the past 14 months; the first time was in November 2021, right after the T20 World Cup in the UAE had ended. Immediately following the conclusion of the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia, India also travelled to New Zealand for a T20I and ODI tour in November of this year.
The Border-Gavaskar Trophy, the highlight of India’s domestic season, will pit the country against Australia a week after the conclusion of the home series against New Zealand.
The first Test will be played in Nagpur beginning on February 9; the second Test will be played in Delhi beginning on February 17; the third match will be played in Dharamsala beginning on March 1, and the series finale will be played in Ahmedabad beginning on March 9. India currently holds the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after defeating Australia 2-1 in the 2020–21 series.
The series is essential for India’s chances of making it to the World Test Championship championship game.
Three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) against Australia will follow the four Test matches in Mumbai (March 17), Visakhapatnam (March 19), and Chennai (March 22). India will have to play nine ODIs at home before the IPL, which is an essential part of their preparation for hosting the ODI World Cup in October and November of next year.
