India is taking on Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) in 1st One Day Internationals (ODIs). The two sides are scheduled to play an ODI and Twenty20 International series comprising three matches each. This will be followed by the four-match Border-Gavaskar Test series.
This is the first time that the Indian men’s cricket team is playing an international match since March, amid the novel coronavirus pandemic. The SCG is expected to have 50 percent seats packed with spectators.

This series is part of the new ODI Super League – a crucial qualifying platform for the 2023 Cricket World Cup (though India has already qualified as the host nation). Thus, for the Indian players, this is more of an opportunity to get back into the grove of the longer formats of the sport.
