India Tour of Australia 2024: List of venues announced for the 2024 Border Gavaskar series

India Test Tour of Australia 2024: Cricket Australia has unveiled the list of venues for the upcoming 2024 Border Gavaskar Trophy five-match Test Series between India and Australia. This year’s Border Gavaskar Trophy series is scheduled to be played in November and December in Australia. The India vs Australia Test Series holds huge significance in light of the forthcoming WTC 2023–25 final. According to Ani, the first match of the Border Gavaskar Test Series is set to take place at Perth’s Optus Stadium.

During the Perth Test match between Australia and Pakistan, the fans turned up to the stadium in very low numbers. But Cricket Australia is keen to work closely with the state government of Western Australia in order to improve the engagement of the fans at the stadium and increase their attendance at the Optus Stadium in Perth. 

According to a news report from ANI, improving the experience of Test cricket in Perth has been a huge priority for Cricket Australia and the Western Australia State Government. The new 60,000-seat Optus Stadium has struggled to attract crowds during Test matches in the last few years, but the stadium has witnessed huge crowd turnovers during the KFC Big Bash League matches of the Perth Scorchers. The highest attendance recorded at the stadium was 28,494 during a Big Bash League match between the Scorchers. The lowest attendance recorded at the Optus Stadium was 17,666 during the Perth Test match between Australia and Pakistan.

India and England are scheduled to tour Australia in the next two years, which is expected to boost the viewership numbers for the test matches in Perth. 

The second test match of the 2024 Border-Gavaskar Test Series will be played at Adelaide’s Adelaide Oval Stadium, and the third test will be hosted by Brisbane’s Gabba. 

The fourth test between India and Australia will be a Boxing Day test match, which is slated to take place at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) of Melbourne, while the fifth and final test match of the 2024 Border Gavaskar test series will be hosted by Sydney’s Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). 

Cricket Australia has not unveiled the schedule for the upcoming cricket season, and an announcement is expected to be made at the end of March. A spokesperson for Cricket Australia told the Sydney Morning Herald that the schedule has not been finalized yet.
