AUS vs IND today match prediction: The matches are coming thick and fast and the T20I series kick-starts in Canberra where both the teams would be looking to experiment and test out various things to build a team for the upcoming WT20.
Australia are without David Warner and Pat Cummins which is a huge blow to them. David Warner is a champion player in the shortest format of the game. Pat Cummins has been their mainstay in all the formats since last year and a half. Having said that, this will present some golden opportunities to some other deserving players.
India have some major problems in their team setup as far as T20Is are concerned. They have a well set team in tests and ODIs but they are yet to hold onto a perfect XI in T20Is. India have left out a lot of deserving players from the T20I squad, should they lose the series, the team selection will be put into question.
Lets take a look at AUS vs IND dream11 prediction
Both the teams will be aware of each other’s strengths and weaknesses and lets bring out the same in AUS vs IND today match prediction
The form of Glenn Maxwell and Steve Smith is something that India will be wary of. India were outplayed by these two batters in the ODI series and they surely do not want that to happen in T20Is.
India have a very good top 3 in the form of KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, and Virat Kohli. Though, the leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal had a pathetic ODI series, T20Is is his forte.
Their bowling attack looks a bit weak as the form of Mitchell Starc is a worry. Their batting depth is questionable as well. Their middle order worries should be masked by Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell
One of their biggest problems is the inability to accelerate in the middle overs. This is the reason why they should play Suryakumar Yadav and Rishabh Pant in the T20I setup. Three anchors in the middle order doesn’t help India even a bit.

AUS vs IND dream11 team for today’s match
In IND vs AUS dream11 prediction, lets point out the players who can fetch handsome points in the game with their batting and bowling.
Aaron Finch: He is a very good batsman in the T20Is. He has staggering numbers in the international arena. He will have to bear the responsibility in the absence of David Warner. He can be a very good pick in fantasy teams.
Adam Zampa: He is one of the underrated leg spinners in world cricket. He is a real game changer in middle overs. He might end up picking handful of wickets considering the fact that there isn’t a single left hand batsman in Indian middle order.
Virat Kohli: After a good ODI series with the bat, Virat Kohli will be looking to carry his good form into the T20I series. With no Rohit Sharma, the onus will be on him to anchor and play through the innings. He might be looking to increase his strike rate in middle overs.
KL Rahul: There is no doubt that he is the best Indian batsman in the shortest format of the game. After a mediocre IPL season, he will be looking to get back to his beast mode.
Other picks: Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal can all be handy picks.
Today match score: Team batting first is expected to score 170
Today match pitch report: The wicket might take turn but should be a decent batting wicket.
