Cricket News: India’s schedule after the WTC Final 2023 | What is Team India’s cricket schedule after the World Test Championship Final?

The Indian cricket team is set to take on Australia in the World Test Championship (WTC) final starting June 7 at The Oval. Post the Indian Premier League (IPL) extravaganza, the Indian team is staring at a busy international calendar ahead. India will be hosting the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup later this year and there is ample preparation for the Rohit Sharma-led side ahead of that.

Team India schedule after WTC 2023 Final

Let us take a detailed look at Team India’s schedule for the remaining part of 2023 and some of the early months of 2024 as well.

Tour of West Indies – July, August 2023

India has a full-fledged tour to the Caribbean in the aftermath of the WTC final. The team is slated to play two Tests, three ODIs and five T20Is. Five T20Is might seem a bit too much just months prior to the ODI World Cup, but the roster seems to have been made up in the backdrop of the T20 World Cup that is slated to be held in the West Indies and the United States of America (USA) next year, i.e. June-July 2024.

Asia Cup – September 2023

Whilst the scheduling of the Asia Cup is still under contention, regardless of those troubles, the tournament is scheduled for September 2023. 12 ODIs will be played in the tournament and it will in all likelihood provide India a good opportunity to give the final touches to their team ahead of the all-important World Cup. India could face Pakistan thrice during the course of the competition.

ICC Men’s ODI World Cup, 2023

The ICC Men’s ODI World Cup will take place from October 5-November 19 this year. To be fair, India does not have a lot of ODIs to play ahead of the World Cup.

However, the series’ held against New Zealand and Sri Lanka earlier this year, coupled with the upcoming series against West Indies and then the Asia Cup should hold the Rahul Dravid-coached side in good stead for the tournament. The ODI World Cup will be a mega carnival and India will at least play nine matches in the league stages before potentially progressing to the semi-finals.

Tour of South Africa, 2023-24

After the ODI World Cup, India will tour South Africa for two Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is that will occur in December 2023 and January 2024. India has not conquered the famed ‘Final Frontier’, which translates into a Test series victory in South Africa so far.

The team will be eyeing to do that before striving to do well in the limited overs’ assignments.
