India vs Australia: The three-match series will begin from November 27. The players will be under the biosecure bubble and follow strict protocols but there will not any compromise on the fierce rivalry and some exciting cricket, which would mark the beginning of the Australian summer.
The Men In Blue came out victorious and captain Kohli would be eager to repeat that performance. However, he won’t be having two of his most-trusted lieutenants i.e. Rohit Sharma (vice-captain) and MS Dhoni (now retired).
While the Australian team – which is coming back from a 2-1 series win against world champions England – will be eager to avenge the previous series defeat against India.
