The BCCI secretary Jay Shah announced on Monday a busy 2021/22 home season for the Indian men's team, starting from 17 November, just three days after the final of the men's T20 World Cup in Dubai.
India is set to host four Tests, three ODIs and 14 T20Is after the BCCI's apex council gave green signal to the schedule during its meeting on Monday.
New Zealand and Sri Lanka will visit India for two Tests and three T20Is each in November 2021 and March 2022 respectively.
West Indies will tour India for three ODIs and as many T20Is in February 2022. In between the home season, India is scheduled to tour South Africa in December-January for an all-formats series.
After the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), schedule for which is yet to be known, India's home season will end with a rare home series in June 2022 comprising five T20Is against South Africa.
Kanpur and Mumbai are venues for the two Tests against New Zealand while Bengaluru and Mohali will play hosts for the two Tests against Sri Lanka. Both series are a part of the World Test Championship's 2021-23 cycle.
