One of the biggest away assignments in international cricket awaits Virat Kohli’s men as Team India looks forward to kickstarting their full-fledged tour to Australia with the upcoming limited over series. After a gruelling Indian Premier League (IPL) season 13 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), players representing the Indian contingent are set to return on the international circuit with the three-match One Day International (ODI) series against hosts Australia.
Dubbed as one of the most highly-anticipated tours amid the coronavirus crisis, India’s 2020-2021 white-ball series against hosts Australia will be contested in front of a sell-out crowd for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic made its presence earlier this year. Team India will play three One Day Internationals (ODIs), as many T20 Internationals, and four Test matches against the Men from Down Under.
The high-profile India-Australia series will begin on Friday (November 27) with the first ODI at the famous Sydney Cricket Ground. As Kohli’s men are all set to embark on a new chapter of the India-Australia rivalry with their upcoming tour Down Under, here’s a quick look at five superstars who will be key in India’s quest for another series triumph on Australian soil.
