Mumbai: The itinerary of the Australian tour of India has been finalised, but will only be released on January 22 during the working committee meeting of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), according to BCCI secretary Jaywant Lele.Mr Lele, who was in town to attend the National Cricket Academy meeting as a special invitee, told UNI on Tuesday that though the itinerary has been finalised it would be made known to the press only on January 22. Sources in the BCCI said that the itinerary has been sent to the Australian Cricket Board already. Australia will be playing three Test matches most likely in Mumbai, Calcutta and Chennai and five One-dayers during the tour.Mr Lele said that tentatively the first Test will be played in Mumbai from February 27. Asked whether this would necessitate a change in the Duleep Trophy match to be played at Mumbai from February one to four, Mr Lele said that Mumbai had already hosted 50 Test matches, "if it was Ahmedabad or some other place we would have thought about it".
