Notably, the first tour match clashes with the Dettol T20 Series, meaning India’s three-format players like Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah won’t be available, but the Indian side is set to feature Test stars like Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajiinkya Rahane and Ravichandran Ashwin as well as young guns like Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw and Shubman Gill.
From Australia’s point of view, the first tour match will be decisive showdown between their incumbent Test opener Joe Burns and rising star Will Pucovski for the right to partner David Warner at the top of the order in the first Test.
The Indian cricket team on Wednesday departed for a two-month-long tour of Australia where it will aim to build on the historic Test series win two years ago. The itinerary consists of 3 ODIs, 3 T20Is, and 4 Tests with the tour kickstarting with the limited-overs leg.
