The first match of the T20 series will be played at Manuka Oval before heading to Sydney for the Boxing Day Test against South Africa on December 4, 2020.

It will be followed by a three-match international series, with Adelaide Oval hosting the second and third matches, both day and night, starting on December 18, to precede the Christmas Test on the same day as the Test match.
Australia and India currently occupy second and third places respectively in the ICC’s T20 world rankings and this series will also make a major contribution to the preparation for the T20 World Cup, which will be held in November 2021.

They now have a 3-2 record against India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, but have lost three of their last four OIIs against the West Indies, India and Pakistan.
India’s cricket team is scheduled to continue touring Australia to play a series of T20 internationals against Australia, South Africa and New Zealand.
