Team India are currently in Australia, amidst the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, for a two-month long tour Down Under. Virat Kohli-led team will play three ODIs, as many T20Is, followed by a tour concluding four-match Test series.
The white-ball leg of the series will be played in Sydney and Canberra, while the Test series will be played across four different venues. Adelaide Oval will host the first pink-ball Test between the cricketing giants, under the lights, from December 17.
The iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) will host the traditional Boxing-Day Test from December 26. Both teams will return to the Sydney Cricket Ground for the third and penultimate Test. The Gabba in Brisbane will host the fourth and final Test.
Ahead of the first ODI against Australia at the SCG on Friday, Virat and his men have moved into the secure bio-bubble earlier today, after completing a 14-day quarantine-cum-training period in Sydney.

However, Virat Kohli will return home after the first Test in Adelaide. He and his wife, Anushka Sharma, are about to embrace parenthood for the first time in early January. India might also miss Rohit Sharma and pacer Ishant Sharma for the Test series. The duo is currently at the NCA in Bengaluru, undergoing rehab.
Earlier in the day, Virat was also seen in the nets gearing up for the series. The BCCi had uploaded a video of the same.
