Team India FTP Schedule: All Team India players were busy in IPL right now. The players of the six teams that have been selected for the World Test Championship have left for England. Players from the remaining four teams are understood to depart for The Oval on May 29. The final match of the WTC 2023 will be played from June 7 to 11. However, the date of June 12 has been kept as a reserve day, so that if the final is disturbed by rain, another match can be held. That is, by June 12 at the latest, Team India will be empty. But after this, the Indian team will stay away from the cricket ground. Looking ahead to Team India’s future touring schedule, it is known that in July they have to tour the West Indies, although their date and time have yet to be announced. Meanwhile, news had come in that the Indian team could play a three-match ODI series with Afghanistan from June 20-30, but now it seems a cloud of crisis is hanging over them.
India vs Afghanistan ODI series yet to be decided
There was talk of a three ODI series between India and Afghanistan but now it doesn’t seem possible. There is known to be a problem with scheduling a full ODI series on June 30 after the WTC final. The Indian team will be on a tour of the West Indies on August 12-13, where two Tests, three ODIs and five T20 Internationals will be played. It is said in a Cricbuzz report that it was previously believed that there could be a three-match series between India and Afghanistan from June 20-30, after which the India team would depart for the West Indies on July 7. Now there is news that the 2023 Asia Cup will be organized from September 1. Following this, the ODI World Cup will be held in India from October to November. That is, the matches and the series follow one after the other, so the players will not be able to rest.
The Chairman of the Afghanistan Cricket Board is currently in India, the final decision regarding the Asian Cup will be made.
Meanwhile, Afghanistan Cricket Board Chairman Mirwaiz Ashraf is still in India, he has come here to watch the IPL final. It was learned that there is also a meeting of the ACC that will be held on May 28, in which the schedule and venues of the Asian Cup will be finalized. The president of the ACCS is Jai Shah, who is the secretary of the BCCI. A small India-Afghanistan series may be discussed during this time, but its chances look very low at the moment. But if an important decision is made at the last moment, nothing can be said now.
India vs West Indies series schedule may be announced after World Test Championship
Alongside this, possible dates for the long-running series between India and West Indies have come to the fore, but which day will be played has yet to be decided. Cricbuzz’s report states that Cricket West Indies has submitted a potential schedule for the series’ time slot, for which the BCCI has yet to give the green signal. It is known that during the WTC final, some BCCI officials will travel to England, where the West Indies series can be finished and the schedule can be announced. It remains to be seen what the high officials of the BCCI decide on the matter.
