India tour of Australia, 2018-19
Australia vs India, 1st T20I
India starts favourites in the first of the three T20Is scheduled to take place at The Gabba, Brisbane on Wednesday noon. The Kangaroos haven’t been at their best in all the three formats and this gives the Men in Blue a fine opportunity to thrash Australia in Australia.
Placed third in ICC T20I rankings, Australia will be coming from a fresh 21-runs defeat from their one-off clash with South Africa. Prior to that, they were whitewashed by Pakistan in UAE by 3-0. Australia will have to overcome their poor form with the bat, which was quite evident in the past series, to return back to winning ways.
India, on the opposite, would be hoping to continue their good form. They are coming after clean sweeping Windies by 3-0 back home and have won eleven of the past twelve T20Is. Prior to the Windies series, India registered 2-1 win against England have secured eight wins from nine away games.
Venue- The Gabba, Brisbane
Matchday- November 21, Wednesday at 01:20 PM IST

Here’s the probable AUS vs IND playing 11-
Wicket-keeper – Alex Carey
Batsmen – Aaron Finch, Chris Lynn, D Arcy Short, Ben McDermott
All-rounders – Glenn Maxwell, M Stoinis
Bowlers – Nathan Coulter Nile, Billy Stanlake, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa (Doubt: Jason Behrendorff)

Rohit Sharma- In 16 innings in 2018, Rohit Sharma has blasted 560 runs with a strike rate of 148.93. He has also scored two centuries this year- against England in Bristol and Windies in Lucknow.
Virat Kohli- In the last T20I series in Australia, Kohli scored 90*, 59* and 50. With the form he is in, Kohli will be the biggest threat to the hosts.
Aaron Finch – Placed sixth in T20I run-scorers for the year, Finch’s recent form has been miserable. He has five single-digit scores on the trot. But his world record 172 runs from 76 balls against Zimbabwe in July, proves what he is capable of.
Chris Lynn- Brisbane Heat favourite, Lynn would be hoping to get back in his KFC Big Bash form. The big hitter punched three fours in his little cameo of 10 balls. He will have to play bigger knocks.
Andrew Tye – Tye was the leading wicket-taker in KFC Big Bash League this year. In 16 matches, he bagged 29 wickets and his clever variations can create trouble to Men in Blue.
Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav- Both the spinners are the leading wicket-takers for India this year. While Kuldeep Yadav has 17 wickets in his bag off just 6 matches, Chahal has taken 18 wickets in 13 matches.
However, looking at the conditions, India is expected to go with only one spinner.
