The Indian Test cricket team will be touring Australia, West Indies, and South Africa as a part of its World Test Championship 2023-25 cycle fixtures. As per an International Cricket Council Future Tours Programme (FTP) near-final draft of the 2023-27 cycle, the Indian team will play a total of six Test series spread over a year.
India will also host New Zealand, England, and Bangladesh for the home Test series in the WTC 2023-25 cycle. However, the number of Tests to be played in all these bilateral series is not yet finalized and will be decided by the two respective boards. The dates and venues will also be announced in the near future.
It is worth noting that, the global cricket governing body has made it mandatory for all its 12 Full Members to play three home series and as many as away series in a World Test Championship cycle. With India’s fixtures for the WTC 2023-25 almost finalized, here is a look at how it looks.
Home Test series against England, New Zealand, and Bangladesh
Away Test series against Australia, West Indies, and South Africa
It is worth mentioning that in the current WTC cycle i.e. WTC 2021-23 cycle, India has already completed two home and two away series. India started its 2021-23 cycle against England which ended in a 2-2 draw. It then hosted New Zealand for two Tests which India won (1-0). After that India toured South Africa where they played a match series (lost 1-2). Sri Lanka came to India for two Tests which India won (2-0).
The Rohit Sharma-led team is now due to play a 4-match Test series against Australia and a two-match Test series against Bangladesh. While India will host Australia, they will tour Bangladesh for the two Tests. Notably, India still holds a chance to play the WTC 2023 Final if they win all their matches from here on.
