Here is the schedule for team India for the year 2018

The year 2017 was a golden year for team India as they enjoyed a dream run and didn’t lose a single bilateral series. The men in blue were pretty busy throughout the year with series across formats lined up one after the other. As the year comes to an end, we move forward to 2018 and Virat Kohli and his men will be once again be involved in heavy workloads.

The team has already made its way to South Africa where it will play 3 Tests, 6 ODIs and 3 T20Is. They will then move to Sri Lanka once again and this time, it will be a tri-series of the shortest format of the game with Bangladesh being the third side.

Very shortly after that, the players will be involved in the prestigious Indian Premier League that lasts for close to 2 months. In July, will arrive another crucial tour for team India as they head to England for 3 T20Is, 3 ODIs and 5 Tests.

The Asia Cup will follow the English tour and this year, the tournament will feature the ODI format as opposed to T20I like the last time. Windies will tour India for a full series later this year and then, the men in blue will travel down under to take part in 4 Tests of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

It’s going to be one heck of a year for India as they will play mostly outside the country. They had a wonderful time in their own backyard last year but it’s time for them to prove themselves overseas. The tours of South Africa, England and Australia will determine how far the team has traveled in terms of supremacy.
