Australian Services cricket team in Ceylon and India in 1945–46
The team arrived in India during October and played 8 matches in India. They played a Prince's XI, the four zone teams and three matches against an Indian XI. These three games were played, respectively, at Brabourne Stadium in Bombay; Eden Gardens in Calcutta; and M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Madras. The first two were drawn and the Indian XI won the third by 6 wickets.
The Australian team moved on to Ceylon in December and played one first-class match versus Ceylon at the Paikiasothy Saravanamuttu Stadium in Colombo. Australian Services won by an innings and 44 runs, largely thanks to a century by Miller.
Arriving back in Australia shortly before Christmas, the team continued its touring ways by playing against each of the Australian state teams, ending with a game against Tasmania in Hobart at the end of January 1946.
