India managed to win the opening match of the T20 series against Australia by 11 runs in what turned out to be a very exciting match. It was actually surprising to see as few runs as were scored in the end on a pitch that was very good for batting.
Both teams have some injury concerns and will probably need to rejig their teams for the next match. The action now shifts to Sydney, a venue that India does not like at all.
Australia finds itself in a must win situation while India can stretch its winning streak in T20 internationals to 10. There is everything to play for and the hosts have no margin for error.
Australia vs India 2nd T20 2020 is going to be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney on the 6th of December 2020.
Australia made some strange choices in the opening match of the T20 series and ended up losing pretty convincingly in the end. It was not a performance that they would be happy about.
Now, it appears as if Aaron Finch is going to join the list of the injured cricketers and possibly end up missing the remaining two matches for Australia.
Darcy Short played a very scratchy inning that ended up increasing the pressure on every single batsman that followed. He is going to get another game simply because Australia may not have too many other options.
They could try out Alex Carey alongside Matthew Wade in the next match but that may be a bit too much change from one game to another. It looks almost certain that Marnus Labuschagne will come into the playing eleven for the next match which will help bolster the middle-order.
Henriques, Maxwell, and Labuschagne are all terrific players that can play spin quite well also.
Australia’s bowling was very good for the most part. Josh Hazelwood, Mitchell Starc, and Moises Henriques were terrific while the spinners did their jobs nicely as well. We are not sure why Sean Abbott is in the team.
He is not a good enough bowler or a good enough batsman to make it. Someone like Cameron Green could be a much better option for this match. That is another change that we expect to see from Australia in this match.
D'Arcy Short, Marcus Stoinis, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Moises Henriques, Matthew Wade, Daniel Sams, Sean Abbott, Mitchell Swepson, Adam Zampa, AJ Tye.
India was lucky to have won the opening match. Its batsmen were poor and some heroics from Ravindra Jadeja got them to a fighting total. Then, the concussion sub in the form of Yuzvendra Chahal turned out to be a massive boost as he picked up three wickets to set the match up for India.
There are a lot of improvements needed ahead of this next match. India experimented and played Sanju Samson ahead of Shreyas Iyer which was unexpected but we think it was the right move. Samson has the ability to attack in the middle-overs which maybe Iyer does not.
Manish Pandey made a hash of his opportunity but should get another game. Maybe Mayank Aggarwal could get a game in place of Shikhar Dhawan but that would be harsh on Dhawan, who had a brilliant IPL.
We think India is going to continue to rest Jasprit Bumrah for this match. Shardul Thakur has been brought into the squad for Ravindra Jadeja and he could play in place of Mohammad Shami who was very expensive.
Navdeep Saini could also get a game simply by virtue of having been in the squad before Shardul Thakur but that would be a mistake.
Yuzvendra Chahal is going to play in the starting eleven while Washington Sundar has done enough to keep his place as well.
India is putting together a flexible bowling attack, especially once Hardik Pandya returns to regular bowling. It will miss the batting firepower from Ravindra Jadeja, though, as that leaves its batting a bit short on depth.
Lokesh Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, V Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, SN Thakur, Deepak Chahar, T Natarajan, YS Chahal.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. Both teams have shown a bit of a weakness chasing down totals in the series so far. We think batting first should be seen as a decent advantage.

The conditions in Sydney are expected to be very good for batting. The two ODI’s played there were very high-scoring and so we expect more of the same in this match as well. Sydney has been one of the world’s highest scoring grounds in recent years and so a total of 190-200 might well be on the cards.
We are going to stick with India in this match. Australia could well be without Aaron Finch in this match and that is going to put a lot of pressure on its batting.It also appears as if the Australians prefer the 50 over format over the 20 over in terms of how they set up.
India has a very strong batting lineup that is bound to fire sooner rather than later. Its bowling is also shaping up well for this format.
Bet on India to win.
The previous match was an unexpectedly low-scoring affair but still 8 sixes were hit in total.We don’t think that is going to be the case in Sydney where the boundaries are smaller and the pitch flatter.
There is enough batting firepower on both sides to help you win this bet pretty easily.
Rahul is in tremendous batting form and we advise getting behind him for this one. He has been scoring runs very consistently and will get three boundaries in the first 6 overs if he stays there. The return of nearly two times your stake is just too good to pass upon.
This is our favorite bet for this match. 70% return on an in-form Maxwell hitting one six?? What is there to think about! Glenn Maxwell may have missed out in the previous match but he is striking the ball as well as we have ever seen him.Take this bet and you have a great chance of making some real money.
