The Indian cricket team has been going from strength to strength in all formats over the last few seasons and 2020 might just be the year when Virat Kohli’s side take it to the next level.
All teams will be focusing on the T20 World Cup in Australia towards the end of the year, none more so than Kohli who is yet to win a major ICC tournament as captain and will be desperate to tick that box.
The other major fixtures for the Indian team in 2020 will be the full tour of New Zealand at the start of the year and the all-important tour of Australia towards the end.
The Indians won their previous Test series in Australia in 2018-2019 but the hosts were missing Steve Smith and David Warner. This time, it promises to be an even more explosive contest during the four-match Test series between two of the most dynamic teams in the world.
