NEW DWELHI: Australia are set to tour India for two T20Is and five ODIs from February 24, Board for Control of Cricket in India confirmed on Thursday. The tour will start in Bengaluru with a T20 and end with an ODI in Delhi on March 13.

Visakhapatnam will host the second T20I, while the other ODIs will kick-off in Hyderabad on March 2, with the others in Nagpur, Ranchi and Mohali. This series will be a chance for both teams to fine-tune their squads and preparations ahead of the World Cup.
