Indian skipper MS Dhoni is expected to join the team ahead of the rescheduled first Test at Adelaide, commencing on December 9th. 

Initially, MS Dhoni was ruled out of the first Test which was scheduled to take place at Brisbane from December 4th due to a hand injury. Now, due to the sudden demise of Australian cricketer Phillip Hughes, the dates of the Border-Gavaksar Trophy were changed. 

Dhoni, however, will not be available for the two-day practice game to be held on December 4th and 5th as he is expected to join the squad on or after December 4th. Indian team spokesperson Dr. Redhills Baba said that the skipper, though, will join the team well ahead of the first Test, which effectively means stand-in captain Virat Kohli may not lead the side when the series gets underway at the Adelaide Oval next week.

The new schedule of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy is as follows:

December 9th- December 13th: 1st Test (Adelaide)

December 17th- December 21st: 2nd Test (Brisbane)

December 26th- December 30th: 3rd Test (Melbourne)

January 6th- January 10th: 4th Test (Sydney)
