The India vs Australia Test series will start at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur on Thursday, February 9. It will be the first Test between India and Australia on Indian soil since 2017.
India have dominated against Australia in the longest format of the game of late. The fact that Australia have not won a single Test series against India at home or away from home since 2015 highlights the Indian dominance.
