The Indian cricket team arrived in Sydney on Thursday for the much-anticipated all-format series against Australia.

“Hello Australia! #TeamIndia is here!” the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) tweeted along with the pictures of players. India’s tour of Australia begins with the white ball fixtures as the ODIs would be played on November 27, 29, and December 2 at Sydney Cricket Ground and at the Manuka Oval in Canberra respectively.

The first T20I will also be played in Canberra on December 4 and the next two on December 6 and 8 at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Also, the Indian side will play four Tests against Australia which will be a part of the World Test Championship. With India sitting at the top of the points table in the World Test Championship and Australia second, it is expected to be a thrilling contest with the first Test set to be played under lights from December 17 to 21 at the Adelaide Oval.

Earlier this week, the BCCI had announced that skipper Kohli will be missing three Test matches in the upcoming series against Australia. Kohli has been granted paternity leave and as a result, he will be featuring in just the opening Test of the four-match series.
