New Zealand are the next team to tour India for a short limited-overs series featuring three one-dayers and three T20Is.

India and New Zealand will play the three ODIs at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, MCA Stadium in Pune and Green Park in Kanpur. The three T20Is will be played at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi, SCA Stadium in Rajkot and in Thiruvananthapuram.

Sri Lanka tour of India, 2017 (3 Tests, 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is)

Sri Lanka’s tour of India has been preponed from February-March next year (2018) to November-December this year. And the Islanders will play in a three-Test, three-ODI and three-T20I series against Virat Kohli’s India.

The three Test matches will be hosted by the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi, Jamtha Stadium in Nagpur and Eden Gardens in Kolkata. HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala, PCA IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali and ACA-VDCA Stadium in Visakhapatnam will host the three one-dayers. The three Twenty20 Internationals will be played in at the Greenfield Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram, Holkar Stadium in Indore and Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.


Also according to the FTP are India hosting Pakistan in November-December 2017 and India travelling to South Africa, in late 2017 and early 2018, to play a full-length tour featuring Tests, ODIs and T20Is.

Pakistan’s tour of India 2017 is unlikely not just because of the unrest between the two nations but also between the BCCI and PCB, who remain incensed by India’s reluctance to play Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates (Pakistan’s home away from home), and the dates for India’s tour of South Africa in late 2017 and early 2018 have yet to be finalised by the BCCI and CSA.

Cricfooty wishes you a prosperous and a fun-filled 2017, a year which sees the Indian Cricket Team scheduled to play in some exciting ODI series against the top cricketing nations.

2016 was a fantastic year for the Virat Kohli-led Indian Test side, who went unbeaten in the 12 Tests they played and more importantly, won nine of the 12, a win percentage of 75. The same can, however, not be said about India’s ODI and T20I outfits led by MS Dhoni, who were not on top of their game for most of the calendar year which began with a 4-1 thumping in a five-ODI series in Australia. And, looking at India’s 2017 schedule, the ODI and T20I sides which will now not be led by Dhoni, who relinquished limited-overs captaincy on Wednesday, simply have to raise their game if this year has to be a good one for Indian Cricket.

Read after this!

Why has MS Dhoni quit ODI and T20I captaincy abruptly?

After a gap of 25 days following the conclusion of the five-Test series, India and England face off in a three-ODI series which will be followed by a three-T20I series. Whilst England have come on leaps and bounds as an ODI side since their ouster at the group stage of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, India have regressed quite massively, vindicated by their winning just three of the six ODI series they have played, with two of those series victories coming against Zimbabwe in two consecutive years (2015 and 2016). India’s 3-2 ODI series win against New Zealand in October 2016 was their first against quality opposition since the semi-final loss at the last world cup, having lost ODI series against Bangladesh (away), South Africa (home) and Australia (away).




A dynamic English ODI side, boasting the likes of Jos Buttler, Jason Roy, Alex Hales, and ODI captain Eoin Morgan himself in the batting department and good all-rounders like Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali, will provide India a stiff challenge. England last won an ODI series in India in 1984-85. The three ODIs against the Poms will serve as the final rehearsal for India before the eighth edition of the ICC Champions Trophy gets underway in England on June 1st, 2017.

Below is the complete schedule of the second leg of England’s tour of India 2016-17:

India-England 2017 ODI Series Schedule

India’s 905th 15 January (Sunday) India-England, first Paytm ODI Day-night (1:30 PM IST) MCA Stadium, Pune

India’s 81st 1 February (Wed) India-England, third Paytm T20I Evening (7:00 PM IST) Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore

The next team to tour India during the long Indian home season 2016-17 is Bangladesh, who are scheduled to play a solitary Test in Hyderabad which starts on 9th February 2017. This is the first time that the Bangladeshis will be playing a Test match in India.

In a nutshell: How did India’s 508th Test, vs Bangladesh, Pan Out?

Australia are the next team in town and bizarrely, Australia kick start their four-Test series in India in less than 24 hours after the completion of their three-T20I series against Srilanka. The Kangaroos are one of the two teams (the other being England in 2012) who have won a Test series in India in the 21st century, as Adam Gilchrist and Ricky Ponting combinedly led their nation to a series win over Sourav Ganguly’s India in 2004 by 1-2 in a four-Test series.

After that historic Test series win, however, Australia have lost eight of their next ten Tests in India. The upcoming four-Test series against India in India is going to be a monumental challenge for Steve Smith and co., who are going through a tough phase as a Test team and are being backed by no one to even run a dominant and versatile Indian Test side led by Kohli close.

Below is the complete schedule of Australia’s Test Tour of India 2017:

India-Australia Test Series 2017 Schedule

Test Number Dates Match Time Venue
India’s 509th 23, 24, 25, 26, 27 February India-Australia, first Paytm Test 9:30 AM IST MCA Stadium, Pune

India’s 511th 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 March India-Australia, third Paytm Test 9:30 AM IST JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi
India’s 512th 25, 26, 27, 28, 29 March India-Australia, fourth Paytm Test 9:30 AM IST HPCA Stadium, Dharamsala

With this, India’s 2016-17 home season comes to an end, that is, if you do not consider the IPL season, the 10th edition of which is expected to begin on April 5th and conclude on May 21st, to be the finale, as always.




The eighth edition of the ICC Champions Trophy is scheduled to take place in England from June 1, 2017, and MS Dhoni’s India will go into the tournament as the defending champions. India are one of the four teams in Group B, which includes Pakistan, Srilanka and South Africa.

  1. Preferred (in the below mentioned order) 2017 India Cricket Games: 1. Pakistan tour to India; 2. India tour to South Africa; 3. India tour to West Indies; 4. India tour to Sri Lanka; and 5. Australia tour to India for ODIs and T20s. Cheers!

    1. Don’t you think the current Indian side are overly reliant on Virat Kohli the batsman and without Kohli, the Indian batting line-up might come unstuck against bowling attacks of the calibre of Pakistan’s and South Africa’s, particularly in English conditions?

  2. Eagerly waiting for Australia’s tour of India nd then India tour to Africa.if India manage to white wash over Aussie in upcoming odi series,this will really be the moment for every Indian cricket fans willing nd wish to watch again and again.

    1. Good thoughts, Sanjay!

      But whitewashing a side like Australia is far from straightforward. At home, you back Virat Kohli’s Team India to come good and win the seven-ODI series. But a 7-0 series scoreline will be some achievement and is unlikely.

  3. Remember 2013 odi tour of Australia to india ..
    Wow what an absolutely marvellous peace of matches.
    Expected same kind of result this time
    Best of luck INDiA

  4. Bcci please pick manish pandey in the side
    He has good technique for playing iinternational cricket

  5. Nehru Stadium of Guwahati will no more host international matches.It is the new Barsapara Stadium which has 60,000 capacity will hold Ind vs Aus 3rd T20 match in Oct 13 2017.
