India’s WTC 2023-25 Schedule: A challenging road ahead

Team India is set to embark on their journey in the ICC World Test Championship 2023-25 cycle with a series against West Indies. The Indian side will play two Tests against the Caribbean team, with the first match scheduled from July 12 to July 16 in Dominica, followed by the second match from July 20 to July 24 in Trinidad.

As the cycle progresses, India will face formidable challenges both at home and away. In December 2023 to January 2024, they will travel to South Africa to play a two-match Test series. This will be a crucial test for Rohit Sharma and his team against the Proteas in their backyard.


Returning to their home turf, Team India will lock horns with England in a highly anticipated five-match Test series from January to February 2024. This series promises to be a thrilling contest, showcasing the battle between two powerhouses of Test cricket.

Next on India’s home schedule, Bangladesh will tour the country for a two-match Test series set to take place in September and October 2024. This will be an opportunity for India to assert their dominance against their subcontinental neighbors.

Continuing their home campaign, India will welcome New Zealand for a challenging three-match Test series in October and November 2024. The Kiwis, who recently clinched the inaugural ICC World Test Championship, will be eager to test their mettle against the Indian team in their own backyard.

One of the most highly anticipated events of the WTC 2023-25 cycle for India is the Border-Gavaskar Trophy tour of Australia. From November 2024 to January 2025, India will engage in a grueling five-match Test series against the Aussies. This tour will provide an opportunity for redemption after their previous tour Down Under, where they emerged victorious against all odds.

In addition to the challenging away fixtures, India’s home schedule includes significant encounters. The five-match Test series against England will be a key highlight, with both teams eager to claim supremacy. The clashes against Bangladesh and New Zealand will also serve as important tests for India’s prowess in Test cricket.
