After a historic tour to Australia, India will now host the Aaron Finch-led side in the two-match T20I series and five-match ODI series, beginning February 24 in Visakhapatnam.
The Virat Kohli-led side had ended a two-month long tour Down Under on a high note by becoming the first Indian team ever to clinch bilateral Test series and ODI series win in Australia in January. The visitors sealed the two series by 2-1, while they settled with a 1-1 draw in the T20I series
India are now heading into the limited-overs home series against Australia on the back of a 4-1 win in the five-match ODI series and a narrow 1-2 defeat in the three T20Is against New Zealand.
However, the Men in Blue-- who have been in their top form in the recent times-- will look to shrug off their recent defeat at the hands of the Black Caps and replicate a similar performance as they displayed against Australia Down Under.
The visitors, on the other hand, are coming on the back of their recent 2-0 win in the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka. Australia will now look to take revenge of their home defeat to India when the two sides head into the upcoming series.
The ODI series between the two sides will also serve as great preparation for them ahead of the 2019 World Cup, which is slated to be held from May 30 to July 14 in England and Wales.
