India vs Australia, 1st T20I

Date & Time: September 20th at 7:30 PM IST

Live Streaming: Star Sports Network and Disney+Hotstar


India will host Australia in 3 matches T20I series which will get started on Tuesday. Both sides have already announced their squads for the T20 World Cup which is starting less than a month from now on. India got the reality check in the recently concluded Asia Cup where they failed to make a cut into the finals after getting beaten by Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the Super 4. Virat Kohli ended up as the 2nd leading run-scorer in the tournament is the only positive for the Men in Blue. They experimented a lot with no sixth bowling option which added to their downfall. With their premier pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel returning to the side, they look more formidable and will have the luxury to defend the marginal totals. Again it’s going to be a toss-up between Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik for the wicket-keeping slot.

Defending champions Australia on the other hand will be without their frontline players David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis, and Mitchell Starc although all of them will be available for the T20 World Cup. Experienced batter Steven Smith will bat at No.3 in place of Mitchell Marsh and this will be the crucial series for the former to cement his spot in the regular playing XI. Renowned hard-hitting franchise player Tim David earned his maiden Australia call-up. There is a dearth of batting in the middle order although Aaron Finch is confident of Cameron Green who can bring more balance with his all-around prowess.

What is the pitch report for IND vs AUS, 1st T20I?

There is grass cover on the wicket which helps the seamers in the initial overs. The boundaries are quite big compared to the other venues in India which allow spinners to take control of the game in the middle phases. Both captains will look to bowl first.

Injury Updates:

Mohammad Shami has been ruled out of the series after testing positive for covid-19 and Umesh Yadav will replace him in the squad.
