The Indian Cricket Team will take to the field against Australia in the first T20I match of the limited-over series with the aim to mantain their momentum from the away series in Vishakapatnam on Sunday. The Men in Blue will look to display their best form which would help them secure a place in the squad of the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup.
Skipper Virat Kohli will return to the side for the team’s final encounter before this year’s 50-over showpiece with two T20s followed by a five-match one-day international series.
While India will be busy with the annual Indian Premier League T20 tournament before heading to the World Cup in England, the defending 50-over world champions will have another opportunity to hone their skills against Pakistan next month.
