AUS vs IND 1st T20I Dream11 Prediction | Match Preview | India tour of Australia 2020-21

Hello and welcome to our AUS vs IND Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Australia and India will clash against each other in the 1st T20I of the series at Manuka Oval, Canberra.

Australia:

The Australian team, after winning the ODI series, will now be entering into the T20I series with a lot of confidence. They had announced the same squad for both ODI and T20I series. 

Few players like David Warner and Pat Cummins will not be playing any of the three matches. D’Arcy Short and Aaron Finch are most likely to open the innings for Australia. Still, there is also a possibility that Marcus Stoinis might get a chance to open as he has been doing a good job at that position.

In the middle-order with the likes of players like Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Moises Henriques, and Marnus Labuschagne, there is a lot of fire-power in their batting unit. They also have the flexibility of all-rounders in the middle-order as Maxwell and Henriques can bowl a few overs.

They have a lot of batting depth as Cameron Green, Ashton Agar, Sean Abbott can also be handy with the bat and also very well known for their bowling. Cameron Green and Abbott bowl at a good pace and also capable of picking up wickets.

In the bowling department, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood will be the key pacers, and they will be accompanied by the leg-spinner Adam Zampa who has been looking in perfect form.

India:

After losing two matches in a row, the Indian team won the 3rd ODI and managed not to be whitewashed in the ODI series. The four changes that were made paid off and the team looked to be balanced in both batting and bowling.

Mayank Agarwal and Shikhar Dhawan are likely to open the innings in the T20I series followed by the skipper Virat Kohli and the top-order looks very good with this batting line-up.

In the middle-order, Manish Pandey might get a chance in place of Shreyas Iyer to bat at No.4. KL Rahul and Hardik Panday will play a crucial role along with Jadeja in the lower middle-order.

The spin department will be handled mainly by Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravindra Jadeja, and if any one of them gets injured or doesn’t play well, then Washington Sundar might get a chance to play. 

Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami will be key players in the pace attack along with anyone among Natarajan, and Deepak Chahar might get a chance in the T20I series. On the whole Indian team looks strong enough and has a perfect chance of winning this series against Australia.
