Unlike previous Australian tri-nation ODI series, each team played the others only twice during the round-robin stage (instead of the typical four times), and the final was staged as a single match rather than as the best-of-three, in order to accommodate the 2015 Cricket World Cup which immediately followed the series. In February 2015 during the Cricket World Cup, India's team director Ravi Shastri criticised the scheduling of the tri-series saying it was a "sheer waste of time and energy."[2]
