IND Vs AUS T20I Series: The Aussies will overstay in India even after the ODI World Cup 2023 is over. Both the sides, India and Australia are in the semi-finals of this fifty-overs event and India had won the league game against Australia in this tournament when it was played in Chennai.
The men in blue side are the only team in the fifty-overs tournament that has not lost a game.
The last league encounter of this year’s ODI World Cup 2023 will be played between the Netherlands and the host of this year’s ODI World Cup 2023 event, India.
That game is on Sunday, 12th November 2023 in Bengaluru. After that, the semifinal matches will start and the tournament will end on 19th November 2023 at Shri Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
But the Aussies have made a brilliant comeback in the ODI World Cup 2023. They had lost two back-to-back matches in this one-day international format tournament.
Still, they are in the semis. Australia is in great form and they are unstoppable. It looks like their winning streak will only end after they lift the ODI World Cup 2023 trophy.
India’s next assignment is to prepare for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 in West Indies and United States of America. The men in blue side will play a five-match series of the shortest format against Australia after the current ODI World Cup 2023. The first match is on 23rd November 2023.
That is the reason why the Aussies will overstay in India. The squad of the men in blue side for this upcoming series of the shortest format will be announced after the ongoing fifty-overs event.
The Indian T20I squad has a main issue. Hardik Pandya the full-time T20 International skipper of India is still on road to recover.
Hardik Pandya the premier pace bowling all-rounder of the men in blue side in the limited overs format injured his ankle in the game versus the Bangladeshi side in Pune.
Due to that, Hardik was also ruled out of the current ODI World Cup 2023 and he has been replaced by Mohammed Shami in the playing eleven.
The selector might look for a new skipper for this T20I series and that is why the selection process for the five-match series of the shortest format might have some delay and the sources have said that India’s T20I squad will be announced after the semifinals of the ODI World Cup 2023.
