One of the most awaited Test tournament of the year is around the corner as Australia have arrived in India for the Border Gavaskar Series.
Australia have visited India for a test series after back-to-back Test series in their own backyard. Interestingly, India won on both occasions – first in 2018/19 and then in 2021. India have had the Border Gavaskar trophy in their cusp for three consecutive editions.
While the Kangaroos look furious and determined to return the favour and defeat India in India, it is going to be an uphill task for the visitors as India have not lost a Test series at home since their loss to England in 2012.
India will play four Tests and three ODIs subsequently against Australia over a period of one and a half months.
