IND vs AUS Match Preview

We have seen some incredible batting from both teams so far and with another batting paradise in store, we could see another match in which the batters dominate. This should help tile the balance of our Dream11 team towards the batters. 

Both teams have also favored six-hitters and that is something you want to focus on. A high-scoring match with a lot of fireworks is in store. 

Weather Report

There is no rain predicted on match day and we hope that we get a full uninterrupted match to enjoy.

Pitch Report

As far as the surface goes, a flat batting surface is expected. This is a venue where the batters enjoy playing. Big scores from the top order are not uncommon and teams will target something around 180. If anything, the spinners could get some help if the pitch is a bit dry. 

Notable stats

Matthew Wade in Prime Form

Matthew Wade has scored the most runs (88) for Australia in this series. He also has hit the most Sixes (5) and the most Fours (10)!

Team News

India is likely to make one change as it readjusts its team balance. We think Bhuvneshwar Kumar will make his way back into the lineup in place of Rishab Pant.

Dream11 Prediction

We think a high-scoring match is likely. The two teams are evenly matched and another close game is likely. Such games are generally decided by small things. We saw how the Indian spinners were effective in putting the brakes on Australia's scoring in the second game and that could be the case once more.

Top Picks

Matthew Wade - At just 6.5 credits, Wade is the cheapest Wicketkeeping option available for your Dream11 team. he has, however, scored an incredible 144 points so far. He will be very highly owned but you must have him in your team as well.

Virat Kohli - Kohli has had a quiet series so far and is just 56% owned at the moment. He was, however, the highest scorer for India in the Asia Cup and likes to bat in Hyderabad. Could be a crucial differentiator.

Glenn Maxwell - Another player that is just 33.7% owned at the moment. Maxwell bats in the top order and will like bowling with the big boundaries. An impact player that will come good sooner rather than later. 

Captain and Vice-Captain - Hardik Pandya and Glenn Maxwell are our two choices for Captain and vice-captain respectively.
