The Indian team will tour Australia for three more ODIs, three T20s and four Tests. For this, the Indian team left Dubai for Sydney. They were in solitary confinement for a few days and are now training. In a tweet, head coach Ravi Shastri said he was happy to be back in the world of cricket.
Ravi Shastri tweeted a photo of himself training with the likes of Hardik Pandya and Shikhar Dhawan after posting “Glad to be back at work”. Virat Kohli has also uploaded a video on Twitter of Indian team players engaging in intense web training. As Mitchell Starc, Hazlewood and Pat Cummins are likely to use more bouncers in Test matches, it has been reported that the Indian team is training accordingly.
The first ODI against Australia is scheduled to start on the 27th. It will be followed by T20, Test etc. India captain Virat Kohli will play only in the first match of the four-match Test series, with the BCCI announcing that Rohit Sharma will be a replacement for the rest of the series.
