As per reports, Australia's summer schedule announcement is due on Tuesday and it would feature confirmation of three Chappell-Hadlee Trophy ODIs on March 13, 15, and 20 respectively.
Here is more on the same.
The reason behind the move
The three ODIs, as agreed in the Future Tours Programme (FTP), were pencilled in for early January next year after the New Year Test between Australia and New Zealand at the SCG.
But the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) insisted on having Australia in an ODI series in mid-January.
This resulted to CA shifting the NZ series to March instead.
Why India refused to reschedule Australia series to March 2020?
BCCI reportedly turned down Australia's offer to reschedule the series to March 2020, since the calendar was reworked a number of times by the ICC, in presence of other board members.
Moreover, since Indian players need to maintain a rest window of 15 days before and after the IPL, this led to the decision of not rescheduling the series.

BCCI and CA remained locked at odds
BCCI and CA are unable to break the deadlock regarding the series rescheduling, while many wonder as to if the series dates were even agreed.
Nevertheless, BCCI has had the upper hand so far.
Meanwhile, CA chief executive Kevin Roberts and chairman Earl Eddings are scheduled to visit India on May 11 to have further possible discussions on the issue.
