AUS vs IND Dream11 Match Prediction FREE TEAMS Today 2nd T20I Match 6 December

AUS vs IND Dream11 Prediction: After losing the ODI series, India have begun this ongoing T20I series pretty well. In the controversy-hit first match, India played better cricket than Australia no doubt. Ravindra Jadeja and Yuzvendra Chahal played crucial roles in Indian victory along with debutant T Natarajan. But now they are back at Sydney where India lost first couple of ODIs convincingly against the hosts. We will preview AUS vs IND Dream11 contest.

After being sent into bat, Shikhar Dhawan was done by a cracking delivery from Mitchell Starc very early. After that, Virat Kohli again fell to a leg-spinner but KL Rahul did well for a consolidation role at the other end. Sanju Samson showed glimpses of his talent for a short while but his dismissal triggered a middle-order collapse. It was Ravindra Jadeja who landed some handy blows in the last couple of overs to take India to a total of 161 runs. Moises Henriques took 3 wickets for Australia.

Before the Australian innings began, India replaced Ravindra Jadeja with Yuzvendra Chahal as former had suffered a concussion according to the medical personnel of Indian team. Aaron Finch and D’Arcy Short began promisingly for Australia with a 56 runs partnership for the opening wicket. But then they lost Aaron Finch, Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell very quickly. Once those experienced options gone, Australia were always chasing the required rate. In the end, they fell short by 11 runs as Yuzvendra Chahal and T Natarajan scalped 3 wickets each.

In head-to-head comparisons, India have been dominant against Australia in this format of the game. India have won 12 matches while Australia had 8 successful outings from 22 encounters between these two sides. In last 5 matches, both sides have won two matches each while one match was washed out in 2018 series.

Pitch and Conditions

What has been the biggest highlight of India's tour of Australia 2020-21?

From what we saw during the ODIs, Sydney surface is as good for batting as it can get. It had nothing for the bowlers and expected to remain same today as well. A perfect summer’s evening is expected temperatures wise in Sydney today.

Captain Picks

For Small Leagues

  • Steve Smith remains first pick from the Australian side today as well. He has been hitting everything from the middle so far. After a couple of low scores, it is only fair to expect a substantial outing from him today. He hit two hundreds from 62 balls each when both teams met in the ODIs at SCG.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal came as a concussion substitute in the last match and delivered a memorable performance for India. he took 3-25 from his 4 overs which also included crucial wickets of Aaron Finch and Steve Smith. With some inexperienced options in Australian batting lineup, he is set to play another important role for his team today.
  • KL Rahul has been among the runs ever since the beginning of IPL season in September. He belted tons of runs for Kings XI Punjab at top of the order before coming to Australia. Yes, there are many questions over his intent early on but he guarantees some runs every time he takes the field in this format.

For Grand Leagues

  • Adam Zampa bowled beautifully in the first match in continuation of his impressive run of performances in limited overs cricket. His match-ups against Virat Kohli and KL Rahul will remain critical to outcome of this match today.
  • Matthew Wade can be a wild-card pick today if you are looking for a differential in the grand leagues. He is likely to bat in the opening position where he usually prefers in this format. With fielders up in the circle, that should really suit his style of batting.
  • Virat Kohli is more than handy grand leagues option today. He was dismissed cheaply in the first match and with the quality of his batsmanship, you can expect a score is just round the corner. With series victory in the sights, he will have extra push up his sleeves to deliver a knock-out punch.
