Another action-packed year awaits Indian cricket in 2024, with both men’s and women’s team hoping to continue their momentum gained from the previous calendar year. The Rohit Sharma-led side had reached an ICC trophy final for the first time in eight years after winning 10 games in a row to make the summit clash in the ODI World Cup, while Harmanpreet Kaur and Co. ended the year on a record-breaking note as they beat Australia and England in one-off Test matches at home.
Among the many tours and contests on home soil, both the men’s and women’s team will have the chance to end India’s long-standing drought of an ICC trophy with the respective T20 World Cup tournaments coming up. The last time the nation lifted an ICC trophy was in 2013 when MS Dhoni had led the side to Champions Trophy haul in England.
The Indian men’s team will also be looking to build towards another good run in the World Test Championship with January slated to be a busy month for the Test regulars. Besides looking to save the ongoing South Africa Test series where they are 0-1 down after a humiliating innings defeat in Centurion last week, India will have their first home assignment as part of the current WTC cycle where they will take on England in a five-match contest. Preceding the England contest will be an all-important T20I series against Afghanistan at home, India’s final preparatory contest before the T20 World Cup in June. Sandwiched between the two will be the IPL 2024 window which will be staged between March and May in India.
The Indian women’s cricket team, on the other hand, will begin their calendar year with the ODI series at home where they are down 0-2 before playing a three-match T20I series as well. This will followed by the Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2024 in February-March. The Women in Blue will later head to Bangladesh in September for the T20 World Cup before ending the year with a tour of Australia and a home assignment against West Indies.
