After thrashing India in the ODI series, Australia will look to continue their juggernaut in the T-20 series which gets underway on Friday. The match will be played at the Manuka Oval and is scheduled to begin at 7:10 PM local time.
India picked up a morale boosting win in the final ODI to set up an enthralling T-20 series. Irrespective of the result of the ODI series, we expect India to perform much better in the shortest format. KL Rahul is expected to open along with Shikhar Dhawan. Shreyas Iyer didn’t had the best of the ODI series which might prompt Virat Kohli to go in with Sanju Samson. Indian batting wasn’t too bad in the ODI series as most of their batsmen got runs. The problem was that nobody stayed long enough at the crease. The bowling, however, is a cause of concern. T Natarajan showed a lot of skills in the final ODI and is almost certain to play along with Jasprit Bumrah. There will be a toss up between Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Shami and Deepak Chahar for the third seamer and we think Chahar is slightly ahead of the other two.
For Australia, they shouldn’t be too disappointed with a loss in the previous match. Losing David Warner is definitely a set back but they still boast of a destructive batting line up. Steven Smith, Aaron Finch, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell are in top form. In the bowling department, Ashton Agar was pretty good in the last match. Josh Hazwood, Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc will form a ruthless bowling trio. Overall, both teams are on par with each other but we would like to go in with India as the winner for this match.
