Cricket Australia has agreed to the BCCI's proposal to convert the seven-match ODI series scheduled for October to two Tests and three ODIs. The Indian board's Tour, Programme and Fixtures committee announced the new itinerary today, with the first Test to be played at Mohali beginning October 2.

Tour itinerary for India v Australia

  • October 2-6 First Test - Mohali
  • October 10-14 Second Test - Bangalore
  • October 19 First ODI - Kochi
  • October 22 Second ODI - Goa
  • October 24 Third ODI - Vishakapatnam

The second Test will be played in Bangalore, followed by three one-day matches to be held in Kochi, Goa and Vishakapatnam. Australia will also play a three-day practice match at Mohali in September to begin the tour.

This is not the first time the Indian board has made changes to a tour itinerary. Earlier this year, Cricket South Africa agreed to replace a five-match ODI series with two Tests and three ODIs. The board's determination to schedule more Tests has come in the wake of India ascending to the No.1 Test ranking for the first time.

The BCCI also announced the schedule for New Zealand's tour of India in November. The teams will play three Tests and five ODIs. The first Test starts on November 4 and will be played in Ahmedabad. The second and third Tests will be played in Kanpur (November 12) and Mumbai (November 20).

The schedule for the ODIs will be decided later based on logistics but the venues are Bangalore, Mohali, Chennai, Guwahati and Hyderabad.
