Indo-Aus series back on?

As revealed exclusively by this blog in October, it seems that the India-Australia ODI series in North America is getting closer.
Reports suggest that Cricket Australia has been approached by India and it is just a matter of negotiating revenues and dates.
Every so often these stories crop up: namely the big international teams set to play cricket in non-Test playing countries.
And having initially sourced the story, I personally think that the two boards should wait until next year to make their money. The proposed Floyd Bennett Stadium in New York would in no way be ready, while Australia still have a tour to Zimbabwe to think about in June, when the series would most likely take place. It'll still be a sell-out mind you.
