India vs Australia T20 series to start from November 23: Check venues, timing, where to watch and more

India suffered a heartbreaking 9-wicket defeat to the Kangaroos in the World Cup final on Sunday. However, the Men in Blue won’t have much time to dwell on their World Cup defeat, with the next T20 series against Australia at home starting on November 23.

While the official squad for the upcoming series has yet to be announced, most of the players who featured in the World Cup final are likely to find a place in the Indian squad when it is announced. It will be interesting to see if veterans Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are included in the Indian T20 squad, as the two batters haven’t played a T20 match since the last 20-over World Cup.

Moreover, India’s T20 captain Hardik Pandya, who suffered an ankle injury in the ongoing World Cup while trying to stop a delivery, is likely to miss the upcoming T20 series against Australia and may even be ruled out of the ODI and T20 series in South Africa as he would need at least two more months to recover from the ankle injury, Indian Express reported last week.

News agency PTI had also reported that Pandya was unlikely to be fit for the upcoming T20 series against Australia. PTI quoted a BCCI source as saying, “There is some time before Hardik can be declared fit and available for selection. It would be more practical for him to try and complete his rehabilitation with a possible ‘RTP’ (Return To Play) during SA series. It will certainly be NCA Sports science team’s call,”
