Melbourne: India will gear up for the ICC T20 World Cup with a home series against Australia featuring three T20 Internationals in September later this year.

According to a report in, "Australia will play a number of white-ball series with home games against Zimbabwe, New Zealand, West Indies and England coming either side of three T20s in India in September."

The series will serve as a preparation for the showpiece event to be held in Australia in October and November this year.

Australia are also set to tour India for a four-Test tour next February and March.

India's next assignment is a five-match T20 series against South Africa at home from June 9 to 19, followed by a tour of Ireland for two T20Is.

The Rohit Sharma-led side then takes on England in the rescheduled fifth and final Test, which was postponed last year due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the Indian camp, on July 1.

The 'Men in Blue' are then scheduled to play a white-ball series including three T20s and as many ODIs against England.
