Australia and India clash in the 1st T20 in Canberra on Friday. Both teams are filled with world class individuals which should make for a tight series, but much could come down to which teams fringe players perform best.

Australia Form


Australia had won nine of their last 10 T20 matches prior to COVID-19 bringing cricket to a halt. Upon return the Aussies lost a three-match series 2-1 to England.

After losing the first two T20’s against England, Australia came back to win the 3rd T20 by five wicket with three balls to spare at the Rose bowl.

England batted first and scored 145 runs on a difficult pitch. Mitchell Starc took 1-20 in four overs while Adam Zampa managed 2-34. Aaron Finch and Mitchell Marsh both scored 39 runs in response to steer the Aussies to victory.

Australia Team News


Opening batsman David Warner is out of the entire T20 series. This should see either Matthew Wade open the batting or Marcus Stoinis if he is fit. 

India Form


India have won their last seven T20 matches although two of those victories occurred in a Super Over during their five-match series in New Zealand. India won the series 5-0.

Batting first in Mount Maunganui, India scored 163 runs. KL Rahul managed 45 runs at the top of the innings while Rohit Sharma scored 60 and Shreyas Iyer 33 runs.

New Zealand were cruising to victory at one point but Jasprit Bumrah produced a superb spell of bowling, taking 3-12 in four overs to see India home by seven runs.

India Team News


Confusion continues around the injury to Rohit Sharma but doesn’t look likely to feature. Throughout the series India may rest key individuals such as Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah with the Test series around the corner.

Australia vs India Head to Head


Australia have won three of their last four completed T20 matches against India. The last time they met was in February 2019 when Australia beat India on home soil by seven wickets.

Australia vs India Odds


Australia are favourites to win at 1.72 with India paying 2.10 with bet365

Aaron Finch is valued at 3.75 to be Australia’s best batsman while Virat Kohli offers odds of 3.40 in the same market for India.

Australia vs India Match Up


This is two exceptional sides but much depends on what teams are selected. Both teams will be resting key players throughout the series with one eye on the Test series. It should be a series full of runs with wickets in Australia a bit flat at this time of the year.
