T-20: If Team India Lose Today, Australia Will Win Series Against India After 10 Years
- India-Australia match from 1:20 pm today, broadcast on Sony Network.
- Team India unbeaten from previous nine series, no series lost this year.
Melbourne: The second T20 match of the three-match series between India and Australia will be played on Friday. The match will start at 1:20 pm Indian time. Australia is ahead of 1-0 in the series. He defeated India by four runs on the basis of Duckworth-Lewis rule in the first T20 at Brisbane. If Australia also defeats India in this match, then they will be able to win the series against Team India after 10 years in the T20 format.
India wins series two times against Australia: Australia won the last Twenty20 series against India on February 1, 2008. Since then, there have been four bilateral T-20 series between India and Australia but has failed to win it. India won two series and made two draws. At the same time, the Indian team is invincible from the previous nine series. India last played a series against the West Indies on 9 July 2017 last year. Since then India played nine series, eight of which won and made a draw.
India’s success rate in T20 in Melbourne is 67%: India played three T20 matches at the Melbourne #Cricket Ground. Of these, it has won the last two matches, it lost the toss in both of these matches. Team India last played here on February 1, 2008. However, it was successful in winning the toss. India last played a T20 match on January 29, 2016 on this ground. It won by 27 runs.
Umesh-Chahal can get chance: Team India lost the last T20 only by four runs. After such a close defeat, the team management can make changes in the last eleven. In that match, Khaleel Ahmed scored 42 runs in three overs with an average of 14, and Krunal Pandya gave 55 runs in four overs with an average of 13.75. In this case, Umesh Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal can be included in the last eleven in place of both. However, eliminating Krunal will reduce a batsman.
Rahul did not make a score of 30+ in the last six matches: In the wake of Lokesh Rahul’s poor form, Indian batting order may also change. Since making an unbeaten 101 in the first T20 in Manchester against England, Rahul has not been able to score more than 30 runs in six matches so far. The team management has retained him at number three, while captain #Virat Kohli is himself in fourth place. Rahul needs to achieve the rhythm because he will be a part of India’s heading in the Test series.
Wrong fielding will be expensive: In Brisbane, the Indian team could not perform as well as expected in fielding. Kohli himself made a mistake twice. Earlier, Kohli missed the catch of Australian captain Aaron Finch and later missed the fielding in the deep. Prior to the first match, Kohli had said that it is necessary to maintain pressure in critical moments by curbing mistakes. However, due to three matches in five days in the series, the Indian team could not find the time to work on the weaknesses. It must have been discussed in the dressing room only.
The teams are:
India: Virat Kohli (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik, Rishbha Pant, Krunal Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Jaspreet Bumrah, Bhubaneswar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Washington beautiful
Australia: Aaron Finch (Captain), Ashton Agar, Jason Behrendorf, Alex Cary, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Chris Lynn, Ben McDermott, Glenn Maxwell, D’Arcy Short, Billy Stanlake, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa
