IND Vs AUS 2022: Team India’s Likely Playing XI

Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar/Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Jasprit Bumrah. 

India will start their mission 'Melbourne 2022' in Mohali. The men in blue will face the T20 world cup champions, Australia. After the disappointing loss in two back-to-back matches of the super 4 rounds in Asia Cup 2022, the home side will look for a turnaround in this three-match series starting tomorrow.

Team India will use the same aggressive approach in this series, which is a build-up for the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.

India must also find an exact combination for that ICC mega event Down Under. KL Rahul will be the persistent opener, and Virat Kohli is the second option as the opening batter.

Virat Kohli loves to play against the Aussies, so he is the player to watch out for in this series. Virat regained his form in the recently concluded Asia Cup 2022, and now he needs to carry that form in this series and the series against South Africa.

The home side will be boosted after the return of their two T20I specialist bowlers, Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel. These two bowlers missed the Asia Cup 2022 event due to their injuries. 

But India will miss Mohammed Shami and Ravindra Jadeja in this series. Shami has been ruled out because he is COVID-19 positive, and Jaddu had an injury that also makes him unavailable for the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.

Umesh Yadav has been named the replacement for Shami. At the same time, R Ashwin or Axar Patel will fit in for Jadeja in this series.  

IND Vs AUS 2022: Australia’s Likely Playing XI

Aaron Finch, Matthew Wade, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Tim David, Daniel Sams, Cameron Green, Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, and Adam Zampa. 

The world champions, Australia, will look to take revenge for the 2020 T20I series loss against India this time around. This Aussies team doesn't have four-star players in their team.

But still, the side looks perfect to challenge India. Australia has rested Warner, Starc, Marsh, and Stoinis for this three-match series. 

Aaron Finch, who had quit the fifty overs fomat, will be a player to watch out for. Finch is not in great nick in the shortest format.

This three-match series is important for the Aussie captain to get his form back before World T20 2022 starts. Glenn Maxwell, the go-to man in the shortest format, is also a key player for Australia. 

If the Indian bowlers keep Maxi quiet in this series. Then their half job is done. According to the experts, Steve Smith, the former skipper, isn't a tailor-made batter for T20Is.

But Smith has the experience of playing in India because of IPL, which might prove handy for the Aussies. Despite no Starc, the bowling lineup of the Aussies looks good with Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, and Adam Zampa.

IND Vs AUS 2022 – Top Fantasy Picks of the Match 

Virat Kohli

The King is back in form. He was the top run-getter for the men in blue side in the Asia Cup 2022 edition. The former skipper also smashed his maiden ton in the T20 International format.

Now the fans of King Kohli want to see him do well against the Aussies, who are the world cup champions of the T20I format. 

Glenn Maxwell

The Big Show, Glenn Maxwell, is a go-to man for the Aussies in limited overs format. Maxi is a terrific batsman and a handy spin bowler in the shortest format.

Maxwell, at the number four spot in the batting order, can take the game away from India in no time; if Australia wants to start the series with a win, then Maxi should fire for them with the bat.  

Josh Hazlewood

The Aussies' pace bowler has been going great in the T20Is. He can break the back of any opposition team with his classy swing and seam bowling.

Hazlewood can use the moisture from the pitch to good effect. The Indian batters need to be careful against Josh because he can dent the opposition in a quick time. 

Jasprit Bumrah

Boom Boom Bumrah is back with the Indian team. The men in blue side missed the specialist pacer in the Asia Cup 2022 edition. India's woes with the death over bowling issue is solved after the comeback of Bumrah.

Now Bhuvneshwar Kumar can bowl in the powerplay and middle overs, which is his strength. At the same time, Bumrah’s last few overs might be the deciding factor for Team India in the first game of the series.
