The Indian cricket team will participate in three ODIs, three T20Is, and four Tests. The games will begin from the 27th of November 2020 to the 23rd of January, 2021. However, the hot question for everyone remains whether Virat Kohli would be available for the entire Test series.
There is doubt of his availability for the Test-match because his wife and famous Bollywood actress, Anushka Sharma, is due to give birth to their first child in January. With such an important upcoming event in his life, everyone is expecting him to skip the Test-matches in Australia. BCCI has named Kohli as the skipper in all three squads.
However, Kohli's plan of action is hazy as of now whether he intends to get back home before the tour ends or not. The Indian team, which retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 2018-19 with their first-ever Test series win in Australia, will try the same in the upcoming tour.
Cricket Australia wants the families of the Indian cricketers to arrive in Australia
Cricket Australia CEO Nick Hockely stated that they are working with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Australian government to make the proper arrangements for the families of Indian cricketers to visit the country during the Tour. He claims that they have a convincing case to permit the families to visit alongside the cricketers.
