The Indian cricket team will host Australia in a five-match T20 international series starting in Visakhapatnam on Thursday, November 23.

Swashbuckling batter Suryakumar Yadav has been named the captain of Team India for the upcoming T20I series. Ruturaj Gaikwad will be vice-captain for the first three T20Is while Shreyas Iyer will join the squad as vice-captain for the final two T20Is.

Apart from Suryakumar and Shreyas, wicketkeeper-batter Ishan Kishan and pacer Prasidh Krishna are the other two players who were part of the Indian ODI World Cup squad and will also feature in the T20I series.

In the absence of designated coach Rahul Dravid, former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman will be the head coach of the Indian team for the five-match series that will conclude on December 3.

The hosts will look to quickly bounce back after losing to Australia in the ICC World Cup 2023 final by six wickets at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

As per the India vs Australia T20I 2023 schedule, the two teams will later travel to Thiruvananthapuram for the second game to be held on November 26.

The third T20I will be played in Guwahati on November 28, while the fourth T20I will take place in Raipur on December 1.

The final T20I of the India vs Australia T20I 2023 series will be held in Bengaluru on December 3.

On the other hand, the Australian cricket team will be led by wicketkeeper-batter Matthew Wade.

The likes of Pat Cummins, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Cameron Green, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood have been rested after winning the ODI World Cup for a record sixth time.

Pace-bowling all-rounder Aaron Hardie and fast bowler Kane Richardson have been included in the Australian T20I squad.

Meanwhile, Andre Borovec will be the stand-in coach as full-time head coach Andrew McDonald has been given a break.
