New Zealand v India - 3rd ODI
Team India have a tightly packed home schedule to kick start 2023

The Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the schedule for Team India's home season from January to March 2023. The Men in Blue will play four Tests, six T20Is, and nine ODIs against the visiting Australia, Sri Lanka, and New Zealand teams.

Team India had a brief home season prior to the T20 World Cup 2022 where they hosted Australia and South Africa.

Rohit Sharma and Co. will begin 2023 with a T20I series against Sri Lanka, which will start on January 3 at the Wankhede Stadium. India are slated to play three ODIs and as many T20Is against the neighboring nation.

Similarly, New Zealand will also tour the country for a white-ball series from January 18 onwards.

Following that, the action shifts to the highly anticipated Border-Gavaskar Test series against Australia as part of the final series of the current World Test Championship (WTC) cycle.

The two teams will lock horns across four Tests before a three-match ODI series to conclude the home season.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 season is expected to start in the final week of March or the first week of April.

The ongoing tour of Bangladesh marks the Men in Blue's final overseas venture in a while. The team's next away trip comes in the form of a tour of the West Indies in July-August 2023.

A second-string Indian squad recently toured New Zealand following the T20 World Cup 2022. While they secured a 1-0 win in the T20I series, they lost the ODI rubber in a rain-marred set of matches.

Their upcoming series will begin with ODI matches, which will be followed by three T20Is.

The three ODIs will mark the first set of ODIs between the two sides in India after the onset of COVID-19. The Men in Blue won the three-match affair in 2019 by a 2-1 margin.

Team India's home season is crucial in their bid to win an ICC trophy

With as many as nine ODIs taking place in the home season and the ODI World Cup set to take place in the subcontinent in late 2023, the three series hold great importance in terms of preparation.

Apart from getting a hold of conditions, which the team will inevitably get given the varied nature of venues for the matches, they also have the task of identifying their final squad.
