BGT 2023: Australia tour of India – Schedule, Results, Fixtures, Time, Date, and Venue

The most anticipated test series of the year 2023 is here as we await the start of BGT 2023 or the Border Gavaskar Trophy.

This article will list all the fixtures along with the Results, Time, Date, and Venue of the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023.

Recent history of Border-Gavaskar Trophy

In the recent years, or more precisely since 2018, there has been a new spice to the rivalry between India and Australia. This came into being after India handed a huge defeat to the Kangaroos in their own backyard.

With this they became the first Asian Team to do so in test cricket. However, what really rub salt on wounds was the defeat in 2020/21 season, where a belittled Indian team was able to manage another empathic victory in a short span of 2 years.

Ever since the victory at GABA, where Australia was unbeaten for 23 years, the anticipation for BGT has been penultimate. Many pundits have even started comparing it with the Great Ashes played between Australia and England.

What to expect from BGT 2023?

So now, Australia is all set to tour India after the disaster of a series they had at home against India. But their recent performance, especially in the test series in their home season has a lot of positives. In the past two years, Australia has improved as a unit.

In 2021/22 home season, they thrashed England to reclaim the ashes in their own backyard. And it was the thrashing in the real sense as they defeated the English team 4-0 to clinch the series.

Even in 2022/23 home season, they had a similar run against West Indies and South Africa. They both the series 2-0 and are looking in great touch coming to India. But the test might be too much for them to handle.

India has been in phenomenal form at home. In the last decade they have not lost a single test series here. The last loss came in 2012 against England and since then the home side has lost just 2 tests in total at home.

This gives us a great outlook at what to expect from India. Their assessment of home conditions is very good, and they curate the pitches according to their strengths. So do not be surprised to find rank turners in the coming series.
