After a month full of surprises, cricket fans are looking forward to all the international cricket action that is set to happen in March 2020. There were many surprising moments in February, such as India getting whitewashed by New Zealand in ODIs and Tests and Australia registering record wins over South Africa in T20Is.

With the IPL set to commence in the last week of this month, the international arena will not have many matches in the next two months. Hence, after March ends, there will be a long break in international cricket. This month will feature a lot of ODI matches along with an ICC World Test Championship series.

So, without further ado, let us have a look at the complete international cricket schedule for March 2020:
