Sports| Indian cricket team is now ready to host the Australian team after playing five cricket series on the tour of Australia and New Zealand. Two T20 matches and five one-day matches will be played between India and Australia. Let us tell you that these ODI series will be very important between the two countries as it will be the last 5 ODIs for the Indian team to test themselves before the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Team India had registered a historic success with the Australian team winning the Test and one-day series on the same ground, and the Kangaroo team would be desperate to take revenge. Both the teams have to play the first two matches of the T20 series, which will be inaugurated on February 24 in Visakhapatnam.
The first T20 match to be played between the two teams was scheduled in Bangalore earlier but the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) had expressed its inability to host the first match of the series on February 24 for security reasons. There will be an Aero India show in Bengaluru on February 24, in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be presented. Due to this program, police officials expressed their inability to provide security to KSCA. He had requested the BCCI to change the date, which was accepted by the Governors' Committee (COA).
Team India will again have the return of regular captain Virat Kohli with the series against Australia. Virat was rested after the three-match ODI series against New Zealand. With his return, India's top rank will be stronger. The Kangaroo team's command will be in the hands of Aaron Finch and the Australian team can also be seen experimenting on the field with some changes.
