The schedule for 2022 hopefully will be a good year for Men in Blue and the whole cricketing fraternity. A lot of games will be played this year and the best news is that a few ODIs will also be played keeping in mind the 2023 World Cup. There will be a lot of runs scored, wickets picked, and new records created this year for sure. The year will see an ICC T20 World Cup which will be very interesting to see because it will happen in Australia.

Currently, the Indian team is in South Africa where they are featuring in a three-match Test series and follow it with three ODIs. Four T20Is were also were scheduled in the tour but they were canceled due to a little postponement of the fixtures. After the South Africa series, West Indies will visit India to play three ODIs and as many T20Is in February which will be a breakthrough series for the Caribbean side.

Right after the West Indies series, Sri Lanka will come to India to play two Tests and three T20Is in February-March. The 14th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will most likely begin by end of March or in first week of April, and will be completed in May which will be a healthy competition between 10 teams this time.

In June, South Africa will tour India to play a 5-match T20I series. The Indian camp will travel to the UK in July to play a limited-overs series which will have three T20I and three ODIs and the fifth Test which was postponed in 2021 has also been added to the fixture. 2022 will also see the Asia Cup being played in the 20-over format in September 2022.

Aussies will tour India to play Border-Gavaskar Trophy which will have four Tests and three T20Is. This series will be the preparation for the T20 World Cup which will be played from October 16 to November 13. After the mega event, the Indian Cricket Team will visit the neighboring country Bangladesh to play two Tests and three ODIs. Finally, in December Sri Lanka will tour India second time in 2022 to play 5 ODIs.
