IND vs AUS Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Sep 23, 2022
India batted brilliantly in the first match scoring over 200 runs but was left helpless as Australia chased down the score with minimum fuss. India's bowling has come under a lot of scrutiny in the past few weeks and it will need to find some answers very quickly.
The India vs Australia T20 series is just 3 matches and so this match becomes a must-win for team India. Australia, though, has won its previous four T20 internationals against India and will look to extend that advantage.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for India vs Australia T20 2022. The match is going to be played at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Nagpur on the 23rd of September 2022.
IND vs AUS Team Previews
India scored 208 in its previous match, a score that was certainly at least 15 runs above par, and looked to be in a very good position at the end of its inning. Hardik Pandya starred with 71 off just 30 deliveries with three sixes to end the inning.
Apart from Virat Kohli, all the other batters played their part. KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav got important runs while Rohit Sharma batted with intent as well. The problem for India has not been its batting. We have consistently seen the team score big runs with plenty of boundaries and sixes.
The problem has been the bowling. Jasprit Bumrah is expected to make a comeback and we also think that Deepak Chahar could get a look-in ahead of Bhuvi either in this match or down the line. Axar Patel was the best bowler in the previous match by a mile and he will play a very important role again. Yuzvendra Chahal is also going through a rough patch and will be under pressure.
India Playing 11
Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, V Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, RR Pant, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, JJ Bumrah, YS Chahal.
Australia has a brilliant chance of winning another T20 series and get its build-up to the T20 World Cup off to a great start. Cameron Green, not even in the squad for the World Cup, absolutely demolished the Indian bowlers. He swung hard from ball one and ensured that they were always under pressure.
He should be prepared to face a bit more spin in the coming matches.
Australia's batting is very deep and has a lot of power. Finch, Maxwell, David, Wade, and Inglis are all free-stroking batters that take the attack to the opposition from the first ball. The one batter that looked a bit out of place was Steve Smith.
Australia's bowling was better than India but it was also put to the sword. Adam Zampa and Glenn Maxwell will be the two bowlers that really need to improve their showing in the next match. Josh Hazelwood was the best bowler for Australia in the previous match and could be a factor once more.
Australia Playing 11
Aaron Finch, Cameron Green, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Sean Abbott, Tim David, Matthew Wade, Pat Cummins, Daniel Sams, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood.

Pitch and Conditions
The conditions in Nagpur should be very good for batting once more. There may be a bit more help for the spinners in this match and that could play into the hands of the Indians. Overall, though, the batters will dominate and expect to do the most amount of damage.
We think 180-190 is going to be on the cards once more.
IND vs AUS Betting Tips
We are going to bet on India to win. There are a lot of problems with the Indian bowling but its batting has been reasonably well. We are hoping that the slight amount of help the spinners get at this venue ends up being the difference.
Bet on India to win.
