The battleground for India and Australia will begin from tomorrow (February 24) with the first T20I scheduled at Visakhapatnam. The T20I series will consist of only two matches so one team need to whitewash the other to bag series.
India defeated Australia in ODI and Test series at latter’s home soil earlier. The T20I series, however, ended in a tie after both teams won one match each and one match was washed away due to rain. So Virat Kohli-led Indian side will look to bag T20I series this time so as to achieve a series-victory in all the three formats of the game against Australia in a single calendar year. Indian team will be short of Bhuvneshnar Kumar and Hardik Pandya, who are not part of the squad.
Australia, on the other hand, will be eyeing to avenge their defeats which they faced during India’s tour of Australia. After a heartbreaking series against India, there were some happiness in the Australian team with victory against Sri Lanka in Test series. Aaron Finch-led Aussie team is short of star bowler Mitchel Starc, who is missing the tour due to injury. Here’s all you need to know about India vs Australia 1st T20I at Visakhapatnam
