India’s schedule for the year 2017: Dates and Venue Details

“The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and England Cricket Board (ECB) announced the schedule for the forthcoming England’s tour of India during the months of November 2016 – February 2017.

“England will play a five-match Test series followed by three One-Day Internationals and three T20 Internationals,” BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke said in a media advisory.

India are about to kickstart yet another intense 12 months of cricket, with matches spread both home and away, unlike how it was in 2016, where the team played a majority of games on home turf.

Also, the team will play a lot more limited-overs games and so fans will be able to see an equal amount of Tests, ODI Cricket and T20 Cricket right through the year.

India had a good 2016 across the three formats. In Tests, under Virat Kohli, they looked an assertive, hungry unit and finished the year without a single loss and also on top of the ICC Test Rankings. They first beat the West Indies 2-0 in their backyard before beating New Zealand 3-0 at home and defeating England 4-0, also at home.

In coloured clothing too, under MS Dhoni, they put in fine performances. After getting off a to a poor start in the ODI series against Australia, India beat the same team 3-0 in the T20I series, won the Asia Cup, reached the semifinals of the World T20, Beat Zimbabwe on their home turf and then beat New Zealand at home. 

India have a packed year ahead once again.

The Indian Cricket Team are set for an action-packed 12 months of action, which would see them some of the best teams in the world across all three formats of the game, both home and away.

Apart from the various bilateral series, India will also defend their Champions Trophy, which they so clinically won in 2013, in England and it will be interesting to see if the Men In Blue can win back-to-back titles in the Old Blighty.

India face against England in a continuation of the latter’s tour, post the Christmas break and Dhoni and his team will look to begin their year on a positive note. They have tasted some amount of success against this opposition, having won the last two ODI series both at home and away and will look to make it three in a row later this month.

Before England arrive, India will be playing against New Zealand at home in September and October. The teams will face off in 3 Tests and 5 ODIs. India will play 13 Tests at home in their 2016-17 season. Bangladesh and Australia are the other two countries set to tour.
