India vs. Australia 2020
1st T20I – Fri, 4th December
Ind vs. Aus Match Prediction:
After an entertaining ODI series with Australia closing in with two wins over India, we are set to witness the T20 series between the two teams. The first T20I of the three-matches is set to take place at the Manuka Oval in Canberra on Friday.
Today match prediction claims the Indians will be looking to make restitutions with a strong show in the T20Is, and plenty is expected of KL Rahul and skipper Virat Kohli. While as per the match tips, Australia has been quite comprehensive under the captaincy of Aaron Finch.
Today match prediction predicts this is going to be a cracking contest. Aussies will be looking to recuperate lost momentum with a win in this match, while the Indians will have a point to prove. Hence, betting tips foresee team India will win the first game of T20 on Friday.
India will win this game.
Today match prediction predicts, D’arcy short along with Aaron Finch will be the opening pair in Warner’s absence. Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne should follow the openers. Hence as per match tips, Glenn Maxwell and Alex Carey will form the team’s middle-order.
Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar and should be their team’s two spinners for this match. We witnessed Agar was impressive against the Indian batsmen in the 3rd ODI. Whereas Mitchell Starc, Sean Abbott, and Josh Hazlewood should be the side’s main pace bowlers. However, today match prediction believes Starc could be replaced by Daniel Sams if he isn’t fit in time for the match.
Wicketkeeper-batsman KL Rahul will open the batting for India along with Shikhar Dhawan. Simultaneously, the team’s middle-order should have Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, and Manish Pandey. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja formed a brilliant partnership in the 3rd ODI, and the duo should continue as number 5 and 6. Yuzvendra Chahal should be the next spinner in the team besides Jadeja as per the match tips. The team management will be itching to include Natarajan in place of Deepak Chahar alongside Shami and Bumrah as the pace bowler. Betting tips say Natarajan will get his opportunity for maiden T20I.
The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:
As seen in the last ODI game, the wicket is a decent one, somewhat in it for both the bowlers and batsmen. There is a considerable pace and bounce on offer for the fast bowlers, with Cameron Green and Jasprit Bumrah getting the ball to skid on nicely. Today match prediction also witnessed a bit of swing extracted by Shardul Thakur and Josh Hazelwood.
The pitch aided the spinners as well, with the ball slowing a bit in the middle overs. Thus according to match tips, both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss. The pitch could slightly slow down, and with the dew being a factor, teams will be eyeing for a score of around 170.
Key Players to watch:
All-rounder Hardik Pandya, newbie Natarajan, and KL Rahul of India will be key players to watch as per the betting tips. Veteran batsman Steven Smith, skipper Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell of the Australian roster will be key players.
