India will get 10 days preparation for England, Australia series: Rai
Kolkata, Jan 26 - India will get at least 10 days to prepare in England and Australia before the actual action begins, the Committee of Administrators (COA) chief Vinod Rai, responsible for running the BCCI, said on Friday.
Days after India coach Ravi Shastri said it would have augured well for the team had they come 10 days earlier to South Africa after Virat Kohli and Co lost the three-match Test series 2-0, Rai assured there will be enough time given to them to acclimitise to foreign conditions from henceforth.
India will tour England between June and September while also playing a first-ever Test against Afghanistan in Bengaluru between June 14 and 18.
Kohli and his boys will then play the Asia Cup in September followed by West Indies touring India in October-November. Australia tour will then come calling as they are scheduled to travel Down Under in November.
