The much awaited Border-Gavaskar Trophy will be organised in Australia later this year. Indian fans in Australia will be able to cheer for Team India in dedicated seats in special ‘fan zones’ set aside at every venue by Cricket Australia.

As per the schedule, India will lock horns with Australia in a five-match Test series, starting from November 22, 2024 and ending on January 7, 2025. While the first Test will be held at Perth Stadium, the second at Adelaide Oval and the third one at Brisbane’s Gabba. The last two Tests will be hosted at MCG in Melbourne (the Boxing Day Test) and SCG in Sydney (the first Test of 2025) respectively.

Cricket Australia has urged the Indian fans to wear blue attire and bring traditional instruments such as the dhol for a family-friendly experience during the Test series.

“Aligned with Cricket Australia’s Multicultural Action Plan, the fan zones will foster an inclusive environment for Indian cricket fans and create an electrifying atmosphere. Once they are on sale, fans are encouraged to secure their seats in the Indian fan zones and help enhance the vibrant atmosphere by donning blue attire and bringing traditional instruments such as the dhol for a family-friendly experience,” read a statement from Cricket Australia.
