The Indian team is all set to start the home series against the West Indies today. They will be playing the ODI series first, followed by the T20I series.
While the ODI series will not witness any spectators, Eden Gardens will have a 75 per cent capacity for the T20I series. Avishek Dalmiya has already mentioned it in his recent statement. After this series, India will welcome Sri Lanka for 2 Tests and 3 T20Is. The two tests will be played at Bengaluru and the second Test will be a pink-ball Test.
After that, the T20I action will be witnessed in cities such as Dharamsala, Mohali and Lucknow. This will be India’s 3rd pink-ball Test match. Before this, they debuted in the pink-ball Test against Bangladesh in 2019 where Virat Kohli made a century. After that, the second pink-ball Test was against England in February last year. India have so far won all their pink-ball Tests at home.
BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly told the media that they are still mulling over the venue options for the India-Sri Lanka series and the full schedule would be released shortly.
