Written by Abhishek Lohia

Top Test Ranker Indian cricket team will go to Australia for a two-month long tour, as Cricket Australia released the full tour schedule on Sunday. In a high-voltage tour, scheduled to begin from November 21 this year, both sides will compete in Four ODIs, Three ODIs and Three T20Is. The series will take action with the shortest format, with the first T20I to be played at The Gabba on November 21, 2018. After the three-match T20I series will be played between these two top-cricket nation, the two teams will compete in a four-Test series, the first of which will be played from December 6, 2018, at Adelaide Oval.

The BCCI has still not approved the Adelaide Test to be a day-night affair as India are still unsure about the pink-ball Test. The second Test between India vs Australia will be played at the Perth Stadium and will begin from December 16. The two teams will travel to Melbourne for the Boxing Day Test which will take action on December 26 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
