Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni's hometown Ranchi as well as the picturesque venue of Dharamsala will become one-day international venues, according to the scheduled for the home bilateral series drawn up by the BCCI.

While Dharamsala has hosted matches against visiting teams, two more new venues - in Pune and Rajkot besides Ranchi - are expected to get approval for staging international games.

The three home series will start with a two-Test series against New Zealand, to be followed by the 'revenge' series against England. Four Tests will be followed by two T20s and five ODIs - three of them in fresh venues. Australia will also feature in four Tests early next year.

Series venues: New Zealand (Aug-Sep): Tests (Hyderabad, Bangalore), ODIs (Visakhapatnam, Chennai); England (Nov-Jan) Tests (Kolkata, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Nagpur), T20i (Pune, Mumbai); ODIs (Rajkot, Dharamsala, Ranchi, Mohali, Kochi); Australia (Feb-Mar 2013) Tests (Chennai, Delhi, Kanpur, Mohali)
