After winning the white-ball series (ODI Cricket) by 2-1 Australia will lock with India for 3 T-20ls from today with the first game at Canberra. Australia will like to keep their winning momentum in the T-20l series also to stronger their authority of favorites ahead of the T-20 world cup in 2021.
With the strong batting performances in the ODI series, Australians are hot favorites to win the T-20l series against India. With David Warner is already out of the series for injury put some pressure on the home team but instead of David Warner Australia looked more complete from batting to bowling.
Before the test series, Australia will look to experiment with the more pinch-hitters in the T-20l series as this format is more successful with the pinch-hitters over the players with a healthy average. Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell will be looking to play the anchor role in the series with the kind of form they have been in recent times. Here are the match details:
