India vs Australia – Team Performance in the Past Matches
Team India is set to cross swords with Australia in the first T20 match on Tuesday, 20th September. This is vital series for both teams as they prepare for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. Australia is the defending champions of the last T20 World Cup and they would like to put it on dominating display. Australia will try to avoid batting collapses in the match. Aaron Finch’s out-of-form will trouble the middle orders for sure. But the inclusion of Tim David will resolve the finishing woes. On the other hand, India is coming with a loss in Asia Cup 2022. It is for sure that the focus will be on the returning Bumrah and Patel on the Indian side. Both players missed Asia Cup due to injuries. Both are India’s vital bowlers in the death overs and if they show full form, India can easily defend any target. Apart from Bumrah and Patel, KL Rahul’s form is also in discussion as he is yet to hit top gear. If Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav are in good form, they can fill the scoreboard easily.
