Team India on Saturday reached Australia, where Virat Kohli’s men are scheduled to play three T20Is, four Tests and three One-Day Internationals. Kohli, after reaching Australia, took to Twitter and shared a photo with young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant and called him ‘champion’.
Pant was included in the T20I series against Australia after Mahendra Singh Dhoni was dropped from India squad. India will play a three-match Twenty20 series before the first Test starts in Adelaide on December 6 with Perth, Melbourne and Sydney hosting the remainder of the Tests before a three-match one-day international series in January.
The long Australia series will be followed by a five-match ODI series in New Zealand before India return home for another five-match ODI series against Australia.
