The cricket schedule for the men in blue, along with the others, has been revealed recently. India predominantly plays limited over format throughout the rest of the year. The Indian team hosts the Australians next after their ongoing tour to Sri Lanka in September. They are set to host the Kiwis later in October and November.

Sri Lanka returns to India for a full fledged tour which would conclude in December before the Indian cricket team take the flight to South Africa. Meanwhile, the West Indians board the flight to London soon for their tour to England and Ireland starting August 17. Later in December, they tour New Zealand for another full fledged away tour.
