The Birmingham Commonwealth Games champions Australia last toured India for a limited-overs series back in 2018 where they clinched a clean sweep over the Women in Blue 3-0 in ODIs before overcoming India twice in the tri-nation women's T20 series.
The series will mark India's return to the international circuit after their win against Sri Lanka to complete a successful Asia Cup campaign in October. They are scheduled to tour South Africa in the second half of January for a tri-series featuring West Indies, in the build-up to the Women's T20 World Cup 2023.
