IND vs AUS Pre-match Analysis
The Indian team is fully prepared for this match. The only crisis about the match is that the playing-11 is not getting confirmed yet, because Ravindra Jadeja is not already a part of the series. While Mohammed Shami had got coronavirus just before the series, in such a situation, he is also out of the series.
In such a situation, everyone’s eyes are on playing-11 India will go in the T20 to be held in Mohali. Just before the T20 World Cup, India has the last chance how to prepare for it. Captain Rohit Sharma has already said that the time for experimentation and preparation is already over.
After Australia, India will host South Africa for three matches. Maintaining flexibility in the T20 format would have been important but skipper Rohit Sharma has already made it clear that his players will try to find answers to all questions ahead of the ICC event in Australia. Although India batted well in the Asia Cup, it also made many changes during this period.
The top four batsmen in the Indian batting order are fixed but it is not yet decided whether Rishabh Pant or Dinesh Karthik will be selected as the wicketkeeper in the playing XI. Due to Ravindra Jadeja’s injury, India may prefer Pant over Karthik as he is a left-handed batsman. Karthik has been roped in for the role of ‘finisher’. He barely got a chance to bat in the Asia Cup but the team management may give him an opportunity to spend some time at the crease in the next two weeks.
With the fast bowling attack of Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal and Hardik, there could be two spinners in the form of Axar and Yuzvendra Chahal. Keeping in mind the conditions of Australia, the team management will prepare the team combination for these matches. Australia, on the other hand, has come to India without some key players including David Warner.
Probable Playing XI
India: Rohit Sharma (capt), KL Rahul (vice-captain), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav.
Australia: Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Tim David, Nathan Ellis, Aaron Finch (c), Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Josh Inglis, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Daniel Sams, Steve Smith, Matthew Wade, Adam Zampa.
IND vs AUS match prediction
In this series, the team India is expected to win the match as they are playing at their home ground and all the home conditions can be co-operative. Due to the absence of David Warner, the team Australia may fail to achieve the target.
