This time the Indian team is really very serious about winning the T20 World held in Australia. As evidence to what we say is right, comes after BCCI led by Saurav Ganguly confirmed that two more T20I matches will be added just before Team India takes off for the T20 World cup tour in Australia.

The two more T20I series that we are here talking about will be against the proteas and secondly the host of the world cup, Australia. It seems that the BCCI does not want to risk anything this time and wants all its boxes to get ticked before the mega event takes place.

Last year, everything was going well in the world cup tournament held at the UAE, but the heartbreaking defeat against New Zealand and Pakistan led Team India towards the exit door and the dream of billions of people getting shattered.

Not taking risk anymore the BCCI is taking every step this time very cautiously and for that has decided to host the two strong contender teams and see what last-minute changes are required.

“We will host SA and Australia for three T20Is each before going for the T20 World Cup. South Africa will come to India after concluding their ongoing England tour (in September). All those venues which didn’t get to stage a game against SA- Ranchi, Nagpur, Hyderabad, Lucknow, Indore, Mohali- will host T20Is against SA and Australia,”

The last minute decision was made at the Apex Council meeting on Thursday, and stood out to be indeed a tight but required schedule for the mega event. The Indian team faced the proteas right after the IPL was over but the match took an unusual turn and ended at 2-2.  The last match between the two teams was declared washed as rain didn’t stop pouring.
