After an extended break of nine months, the Indian cricket team will return to the cricket field as it gears up to take on the mighty Australians Down Under. The last time Virat Kohli and Co. visited Australia, they made history by winning the 4-Test series by the scoreline of 2-1.
BCCI has sent a star-studded squad to Australia this year as well, as the fans expect the Indian cricket team to replicate its past performance. Unfortunately, skipper Virat Kohli will miss the last three Test matches of the tour. Still, the team has the potential to win the ICC World Test Championship.
A 3-match ODI series will kick off the Indian cricket team's Australian tour on 27th November. Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, the cricketers are currently undergoing the mandatory quarantine period. The New South Wales government permitted Virat Kohli's men to practice during that time.
The squad landed in Sydney five days ago and has resumed the open net sessions now. A few Indian cricket team players have uploaded some exciting photos and videos from their practice sessions.
