India’s tri-series rescheduled

Cricket Australia (CA) on Tuesday revised the schedule for the ODI tri-series involving India, Australia and England. The series opener Jan 16 will now be played between the hosts and the English instead of the Indians at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). The earlier scheduled match that was to throw open the series between Australia and India will now be played Jan 18 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), the CA said in a press statement.

The rescheduling of the ODI was warranted following postponement of the first of the four-match Test series against India to Dec 9. The Test series, which was scheduled to start Dec 4 but was postponed due to Australian batsman Phillip Hughes’ death Nov 27, will now begin in Adelaide instead of Brisbane. CA also confirmed the traditional PM XI match against England at Manuka Oval would remain unchanged and will be played on Jan 14.

Revised dates for the ODI tri-series:
Jan 16: Australia v England at SCG (Changed from Jan 18); Jan 18: Australia v India at MCG (Changed from Jan 16); Jan 20: England v India at GABBA; Jan 23: Australia v England at Blundstone Arena; Jan 26: Australia v India at SCG; Jan 30: India v England at WACA, Perth; Feb 1: Final at WACA.
