In the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, India and Australia will face off for the first of the four Tests in Nagpur, from 9 February onwards.
David Warner’s love for India is no secret. The Australia opener, part of the squad for the upcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy, posted a message on his Instagram account expressing his excitement at coming back to the country.
Warner posted an Instagram story of himself with the message “See you soon India”.

Warner had been in poor form in the past few months before he came back in style against South Africa last year. In December, the southpaw scored a double century in the Boxing Day Test at Melbourne against the Proteas. The Australia opener slammed 200 off 255 deliveries, with 16 fours and 2 sixes included in his knock.
The Australian bowling unit did not let South Africa gain an advantage in the contest, with Cameron Green and Nathan Lyon emerging as the stars of the game. The hosts ultimately won the fixture by an innings and 182 runs after South Africa were dismissed for 204.
In the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, India and Australia will face off for the first of the four Tests in Nagpur, from 9 February onwards. The second Test will be played in Delhi from 17 February. The third fixture will be held in Dharamshala from 1 March, while the final game will take place in Ahmedabad from 9 March. The four Tests will be followed by a three match ODI series.
The Indian squad for the first two matches of the series has been announced, with swashbuckling batter Suryakumar Yadav getting his maiden call-up in the format. Shubman Gill, who has been in good form recently is also part of the squad.
