AUS vs IND Dream11 Team | India vs Australia 1st T20I Match Prediction

India, strengthened with return of Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah, would look to make a winning start to the two-match T20I series at Visakhapatnam on Sunday. The onus will be on India’s top 3 – Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli – to take the game away from the touring Aussie. However, the hosts are vulnerable in a few departments with the injury ruling out all-rounder Hardik Pandya and rest to Kuldeep Yadav.

Australia are coming to India after Big Bash and would want to replicate the performance on the bigger stage. The likes of D’Arcy Short, Kane Richardson, Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell all had a good run in the tournament. The tourists might not start as favourites but have enough depth and power to resist India’s challenge.

Indi – 1, Australia – 2, No Result – 2

Where: Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam
