Almanac Cricket – Australia v India 2020/21: The international season Down Under begins tomorrow


“The Cricketer”
by Kate Birrell


It seems that this season’s international cricket calendar is yet another schedule affected by ‘the virus’. The summer usually start with the Test series and then goes on to the shorter forms of the game. This year, the order is reversed. But, hey, at least we’ll have a summer of cricket to savour!


The international season begins tomorrow when Australia and India meet in the first game of the three-match ODI series in Sydney. The second and third games will be played in Sydney and Canberra on Sunday and Wednesday respectively. To see the ODI match schedule click HERE.


The T20I series, also comprising three games, follows from Friday 4th December with Canberra hosting the first match and Sydney presenting the second and third games. For the details of those matches click HERE.


The sponsor of these two series is Dettol – appropriate, don’t you think?


At the time of writing, the First Test is scheduled to be played at Adelaide Oval from December 17th with the subsequent Tests scheduled for Melbourne (from December 26th), Sydney (from January 7th) and Brisbane (from January 15th). To see the Test schedule click HERE.
