The Indian cricket team will soon play their first international match in almost nine months with their Australian tour kicking off next week in Sydney. The players have landed in Australia and started practicing for the vital series.
Virat Kohli and co. have fond memories of their previous tour of Australia. The Men in Blue thrashed the hosts in the ODI series, while the Indian cricket team also registered a historic win in the Test series.
Although they have slipped to the number two position in the ICC World Test Championship points table, a strong performance Down Under will guarantee India a place in the summit clash. Sony Pictures Sports Network will broadcast the entire India tour of Australia over the next two months.
