2023 INDIA CRICKET TOUR : 9 February - 13 March 2023

 

India is probably the only nation in the world which boasts of age old traditions, vibrant culture and numerous destinations with an apparent mix of heritage, pilgrimage, beaches and wildlife. India rightly manifests a place like no other in the world with the forts and palaces of Jaipur, historical monuments of Delhi, the Taj Mahal the 7th Wonder of World at Agra, and the innumerous World Heritage Sites.

This will be our seventh cricket tour to India, and we love watching Australia battle with the sub continental giants India in front of their home crowds where in the terraces the chanting of the crowds is cricket support in its most passionate form, and must be seen and appreciated to understand Test match cricket in the sub-continent.

 

Dates have been confirmed for the upcoming Cricket Tour of India, and as expected Nagpur , Delhi , Dharamsala and Ahmedabad will host the 4 Test Match Series between India and Australia.

1st Test Nagpur 9 - 13 February 2023
2nd Test Delhi 17 - 21 February 2023
3rd Test Dharamsala 1 - 5 March 2023
4th Test Ahmedabad 9 - 13 March 2023
