Australia vs India has always been a cracker of competition and the recently concluded ODI series was no different. The T20I series begins tomorrow with the momentum now shifted towards the Indian Cricket contingent. The series begins with India being confident after their unbelievable streak for the last one year in T20s as they haven’t lost a single game. At the beginning of this year, India whitewashed New Zealand in New Zealand with a series that comprised 2 super overs and 3 convincing victories.
India is also the only country that have had the edge over Australia in Australia when it comes to the shortest format.
Aus vs Ind Venue
The 1st T20I begins at the Manuka Oval, Canberra that has only seen one T20 International being played last year between Australia and Pakistan.
Aus vs Ind Pitch Conditions
The shorter boundaries here in Canberra encouraged the players to take the aerial route in the 3rd and final ODI. Expect the same in the T20s also even though for the one-off fixture that happened last year Pakistan made 150 which was chased by Australia convincingly on the back of Steve Smith’s fiery 80* off 51 deliveries.
Aus vs Ind Head To Head
Out of 20 T20 games, India have won on 11 occasions while Australia could pull off a victory in 8 matches. In Australia, India have thumped Australia 5 times out of 9 that included a no result fixture.
