The India cricket team are currently touring Australia from November 2018 to January 2019 to play four Tests, three One Day Internationals (ODIs) and three Twenty20 International (T20I) matches.[1][2][3][4] Initially, the Test match at the Adelaide Oval was planned to be a day/night fixture, but the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) declined the offer from Cricket Australia to play the match under lights.[5] In April 2018, the Western Australian Cricket Association confirmed that the Perth Stadium would host its first ever Test match.[6] During the second Test, it became the tenth Australian venue to host a Test match.[7]

The T20I series was drawn 1–1, after the second match finished in a no result.[8]

India's regular wicket-keeper for limited overs matches, MS Dhoni, was not named in the side's squad for the T20I fixtures for this series and the ones against the West Indies.[13] Instead, India's Test wicket-keeper, Rishabh Pant, was selected in Dhoni's place.[14]

Mitchell Starc was added to Australia's T20I squad for the third match, replacing Billy Stanlake, who was injured.[15]
