New Delhi: The three-match Limited Overs series between India and Australia in September was plunged into uncertainty on Monday after the new schedule of the Asian Test championships was announced.Melbourne's Colonial Stadium was due to hold the first two One-dayers indoors on September 21 and 23, while the third was to be played at the Gabba in Brisbane on September 26.But the dates clash with the Asian Test match between India and Bangladesh from September 20 to 24, which the Indians are committed to playing. "We would rather play the Asian Test championships than a One-off limited-overs series," an official of the Board of Control for Cricket in India told AFP.The Australian Cricket Board is unlikely to take kindly to the double-booking after having already changed the schedule once to suit the Indians.The One-day series was originally scheduled between September 10 and 16, but was put off to allow India to play the September 12-16 Asian Test match against Pakistan.
