In 2020 India only played 10 T20s, 9 ODIs and 4 tests. That’s 39 days of cricket action and only 2 T20s at home. The stadiums are empty and everyone is sitting at home watching old reruns and no cricket team in the world except New Zealand has been able to keep any form of it. As 2021 dawns, India is planning a big test in Australia, England and the T20 World Cup on the horizon.
The Men In Blue will play 14 test matches, 16 ODIs and 23 T20s in 2021, in addition to the Asian Cup, ICC World Cup and IPL. In pure numbers, it’s 109 days of cricket and 60 days of IPL excluding major tournaments, or more than 1 match every 3 days! Let’s take a look at some of the big test series this year.
TOUR OF INDIA BELOW
The India series in Australia is at the halfway point, there are 2 tests left and the series is ready at 1-1. Congratulations went to Team India for their performance against the risk of injury and missing players in battle. A win in this series will be a big deal for India, putting sustained pressure in the Test Championship to defeat Australia.
ENGLAND TOUR FROM INDIA
Four tests, 4 ODI and 4 T20 and a chance to return it to the reigning ODI world champions at home. When India traveled to England for the 4-test series, the men in blue were humbled by a 3-1 loss. But England did not have a test in India for 7 years after winning the series in 2012-13. India are also on a 10-game winning streak in the home game’s longest format. Add to that the first test match in history at the world’s largest cricket stadium and cricket fans are licking their lips.
ASIA CUP 2021
7 cups in 14 tournaments and also a chance to make 3 out of 3 for the men in blue. India has won it in the last 2 editions in Bangladesh and the United Arab Emirates, this time in Sri Lanka. No team has ever been able to make an Asian Cup hat-trick, a chance for Kohli and Co to change that.
ENGLAND TO INDIA TOUR
After hosting England in January and February, India will travel to England in August to fight in another series overseas. 5 test rounds and India has yet to win a round in England in 13 years and while India has had its test wins here and there, if Virat Kohli and his colleagues manage to win this round, it will make him one of the legendary captains. with Rahul Dravid & Saurav Ganguly. Even MS Dhoni has not been able to win a series in England so this will be a great opportunity for the new Team India look.
ICC WORLD CUP 2021
This year’s big tournament in world cricket. World T20 will be in India in October-November. India has yet to win a major ICC trophy since the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy. India has faltered in the later stages of competition lately. Semi-final of the last 2 ICC ODI World Cups, 1 final of the ICC Champions Trophy, and a final and semi-final in World T20. It’s time for Team India to break the jinx and what better opportunity to do so than at home this year!
