India will be taking on the WT20 defending champions, Australia for a three match T20I series. The series will begin on 20th September with the 1st T20I to be played in Mohali. India had a disappointing outing at the Asia Cup held in UAE earlier this month. The Indian bowling attack was criticized for not having the spark and being unable to restrict the batters in the death overs. Arshdeep Singh did show his potential in the two last overs he bowled against Pakistan and Sri Lanka but was not able to defend the total. Ace Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been added to the squad along with Harshal Patel as they have recovered from the injuries. This definitely will strengthen the bowling attack going into the marquee event.
Another positive for India was the form of Virat Kohli, he was the second highest run-getter in the Asia Cup with 276 runs which included 2 fifties and a drought-ending century against Afghanistan.
Australia played their last T20I series against Sri Lanka in June. They defeated the Lankans 2-1 in the three-match series. They have drafted the talented batter Tim David in their squad who has shown his capabilities in leagues around the world. Tim David was impressive in this year’s IPL season too. Playing for the Mumbai Indians, he scored 186 runs in 8 games with an exceptional strike rate of 216. Australia have rested David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, and Marcus Stoinis for this series but they are part of the World Cup squad.
Both teams will be looking to get the combinations right and utilize the series for the upcoming World Cup next month.
