Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led India are set to host Australia for a seven-match One-Day International (ODI) series and a one-off Twenty20 starting October 10, 2013.

Australia come into the series at the back of a painful Ashes 2013 defeat to England while India begin their campaign as the No 1 side in ODI cricket.

For the visitors, this series could be a potential audition round for the return Ashes that is set to be played in Australia towards the end of the year. For MS Dhoni & Co., the prospect of sustaining their dominance in the 50-over format of the game and build the core of the side that could be defending the World Cup title in 2015 will be important.

The two teams will first play the one-off T20 at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot and then move to Pune where they will play the first of the seven ODIs at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium.

The next six games will take place in Sawai Mansingh Stadium (Jaipur), Punjab Cricket Association Stadium (Mohali), JSCA International Stadium Complex (Ranchi), Barabati Stadium (Cuttack), Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium (Nagpur) and M Chinaswamy Stadium (Bangalore) respectively.
