India vs Australia 2019: The visiting Australian cricket team is in Hyderabad and they have already started training for the upcoming limited overs series. Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell and the squad were spotted getting their muscles in place ahead of the 1st T20I that is slated to take place on February 24 at Vizag. The Men in Blue will start overwhelming favourites after they beat the same team Down Under earlier in the year.
Here is the Australian team training:
“I don’t think you need anything to put a pep in your step when you’re going on an Aussie tour, particularly to India. If you’re slightly off the mark you’re going to get hurt,” Finch was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.
“They’re the best side in one-day cricket in their own conditions, I think. So you’ve got to go there full of confidence and have a real clear game plan,” he added.
The Men in Blue will take on Australia in a two T20I matches to kick things off, that will be followed by a five-match ODI series between the two sides will also serve as great preparation for them ahead of the 2019 World Cup, which is slated to be held from May 30 to July 14 in England and Wales. Australia will look to avenge the loss to India earlier in the year in Australia.
