India Vs Australia 2018-19 Full Schedule, Squads, Timings

Check out India Vs Australia 2018-19 Full Schedule. After a thrilling series win against West Indies, Indian fans are waiting for an exciting India tour of Australia, 2018-19 schedule which will begin from November 21, 2018. However, for Virat Kohli’s men, the tour seems to be a tough one as the Indian team will spend around 2 months Down Under.

Meanwhile, the team will be also under a lot of pressure after its failure to win series in South Africa and England.

Considering India’s performance in Australia, the Men in Blue has a good record in T20s, winning 4 out of 6 matches. However, the team has a very poor record in ODIs as they have won only 11 matches out of 46.

In Test matches, the Indian team has just won 5 matches out of 44 matches, which is very poor for a Test playing nation.

Interestingly, Virat Kohli and Co’s New Year resolution will be to secure victory against the Kangaroo’s. Apart from that, the performance of the players will also be evaluated in the Australian series. Well, the selectors can now choose the best team for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 in England.

In the Test matches, it seems that Rohit Sharma and Murali Vijay have won the hearts of the Indian selectors, are they have been included into the squad for the 5-day format. Prithvi Shaw, who had made an impressive debut against West Indies is also in the squad for Test series.

Moreover, for Australian Men’s cricket team, the upcoming series against India is going to be a challenging one in the absence of Steve Smith and David Warner, who are currently serving a 1-year ban after they were caught red-handed in the ball tampering scandal.

Also, the Australian cricket team led by the new skipper Tim Paine along with the head coach Justin Langer will be looking forward to retaining the reputation made by the previous teams.
