Australia v India 2020/21: TV channel, match start time & schedule for the Test series

India Australia Test live
by Wisden Staff 2-minute read

The much-awaited Australia vs India Test series begins on December 17 – here are all the details on live telecast, streaming and timings for the marquee series.

You can follow the match scorecard of the third Australia v India Test in Sydney here.

The 2020/21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy will begin with a day/night Test – the first ever between India and Australia – at the Adelaide Oval on December 17.

The teams geared up for that with a tour-match in which the Indians took on an Australia A side in a pink-ball affair in Sydney. The likes of Rishabh Pant, Shubman Gill, Hanuma Vihari and Mayank Agarwal had good stints with the bat, although India captain Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara were rested from the encounter.

Australia have a few injury worries going into the Test series. David Warner will miss the opening Test, and Will Pucovski, the young opener who was expected to slot in as replacement, will now also be unavailable after suffering from a concussion during a warm-up encounter.

Cameron Green, another Test hopeful, also suffered from a concussion, and with that in mind, Marcus Harris has been called up to the Test squad as cover.

The day-night match in Adelaide will begin at 2.30pm local time in Adelaide, while the rest of the matches – in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane – will begin at traditional Test match start times, at 10.30am in Melbourne and Sydney, and at 10am in Brisbane.

Below are all the live TV telecast and streaming details for the Australia vs India Test series.
