The Indian cricket team is the most followed and most scrutinized cricket team in the world. India is a country where cricket is an obsession, and millions of people expect their superstars to perform well. And, there is always a sense of anticipation every time the Indian side takes the field.
Now, it is a known fact that the coronavirus pandemic wreaked havoc across the world, and India did not even play a single international match between March and October. But now, with international cricket back on its feet, the Indian side is back on the field as well.
They resumed their international assignments with a full-fledged tour to Australia consisting of 3 ODIs, 3 T20Is, and 4 Tests. While Australia won the ODI series, India came back strongly, winning the T20I series as well as the hyped-up Test series as well.
Now, the Indian side is currently taking on England in the first Test at Chennai. The Indian cricketers have a relentless schedule ahead between 2021 and March 2023. After the England series consisting of 4 Tests, 5 T20Is, and 3 ODIs, the cricketers will be involved in the 14th edition of the IPL in April and May. This will be followed by the World Test Championship (if India qualifies for the final).
Then, the Indian side will tour Sri Lanka for a limited-overs series in June and July followed by the Asia Cup and a short series against Zimbabwe. From July end to September, Virat Kohli’s men have a massive 5-match Test series against England lined up. In October 2021, South Africa will tour India for a limited-overs series, and this will be followed by the T20 World Cup in October and November.
After the T20 World Cup, New Zealand will tour India for a series consisting of 2 Tests and 3 T20Is. India’s final assignment of 2021 will be a tour to South Africa. From January to March 2022, India will take on West Indies and Sri Lanka. While the series against the West Indies will consist of 3 ODIs and as many T20Is, the series against Sri Lanka will feature 3 Tests and 3 T20Is.
Busy schedule continues for team India
Then, between April and May 2022, they will be involved in the 15th edition of the IPL. In July, India will take on England in a limited-overs series consisting of 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is, and will once again square off against West Indies in a limited-overs series. In September 2022, India will be involved in the Asia Cup, and this will be followed by the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia. In the months of November and December 2022, Kohli’s men will face Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
In January 2023, India will take on New Zealand in a limited overs series. This will be followed by a long series against Australia, consisting of 4 Tests, 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is. Indeed, just reading the schedule is very exhausting. And, needless to say, the Indian cricketers have to be in top mental and physical form in the next two years.
