Australia will tour India for a four-match Test series in February-March next year, a top BCCI official said on Friday.

The Australians, who had thrashed India 4-0 in the last Test series in their own backyard, will play the four Test matches at Kanpur, Chennai, Delhi and Mohali, according to Cricket Board's CAO Prof Ratnakar Shetty.

The visitors will also play a few warm-up games but there are no ODIs or T20s scheduled, he said.

Shetty was here on the second day of the first Test between India and England at the Sardar Patel Stadium at Motera.

The detailed itinerary of Australia's visit, expected to commence after they conclude their home international season on February 13 with a one-off T20 game against the West Indies, is yet to be announced by the BCCI.
