Changes have been made to the schedule for Australia's four-Test series in India, which now gets underway on 22nd February in Chennai.

The two teams will then move on to play in Hyderabad from 2nd March before moving north to complete the series in Mohali and Delhi.

Mohali will host the two teams between 14th and 18th March before the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi will welcome the sides between 22nd and 26th March.

For India, the series offers them a chance to bounce back after being beaten by England in 2012 and Australia go into the opening Test chasing a fourth straight Test win.

However, they haven't won a Test in India since 2004, and have only ever won there 12 times. India won the last series between the two teams 2-0, in 2010.

They won by the same scoreline in 2008, in a series that saw Sachin Tendulkar pass 12,000 Test runs. Tendulkar has subsequently retired from One-Day International cricket but with runs for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy behind him, could feature against Australia.

If so, it would be his 195th Test match and would see him enter his 24th year as an international cricketer.
