Virat Kohli and Co. will play two warm-up games ahead of the all-important Test series in Australia. New South Wales will hots both the games before the side travels to Adelaide to compete in the first Test match.

As per the provisional schedule shared by Cricket Australia with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), India were likely to play a solitary warm-up game, a day-night match in Adelaide from December 11 to 13 just ahead of the pink-ball Test in Adelaide from December 17.

But the BCCI had requested for one more warm-up game as there have been no first-class matches in India sue to the Covid-19 pandemic. The day-night warm-up game will be broadcasted hence an international venue is an obvious choice. Sydney Cricket Ground will host the three-day affair.

"India's squad will arrive in Sydney on November 12 subject to Australian Border Force travel authorisation and the appropriate departure-approvals. The team will quarantine in Sydney prior to the first match of the series on November 27," Cricket Australia stated in a media release.

"CA can also confirm dates for tour matches ahead of the Test series. India A will take on Australia A at Drummoyne Oval (New South Wales) (December 6-8), and India will play Australia A in a day-night match at the Sydney Cricket Ground (December 11-13)," the release stated. The Indian contingent - 32 cricketers including four back-up bowlers, coaching and support staff will travel to Australia after the conclusion of Indian Premier League 2020.
