Show Preview

After a disastrous start to the summer of cricket, Australia will attempt to turn things around in a three-match T20 series against India, with the first match being played at the Gabba. Join The Roar for live scores and coverage from 6:50pm (AEDT).

The Aussies will be seeing a lot of India this summer, with this T20 series, three ODIs and then four Tests to cap it all off, so getting off to a good start is imperative for both sides.

Australia also have plenty on the mind. With confirmation yesterday that David Warner, Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft will remain suspended until the end of their bans, the Aussies have to find a way to win without them.

It’s something they have struggled with since South Africa, losing away from home to England, to Pakistan and Zimbabwe in a T20 tri-series, then away from home in a Test match drubbing against Pakistan.

Their limited overs form at home against South Africa, where they lost the ODI series 2-1 and the one-off T20 in comprehensive fashion on the Gold Coast last weekend is more worrying than anything else they have put up recently though.

There have been problems springing up all over the park for Australia, but it’s their batting which has constantly let them down, with the side struggling to muster enough runs.

To be fair though, in the rain-shortened Gold Coast bash, South Africa ran up more than 100 runs in 10 overs, so their bowlers must lift the game as well, with Jason Behrendorff’s first over of the match just about summing things up.

Unfortunately for Australia, they are about to run into an immensely taleneted and in-form Indian side who won’t be taking any prisoners throughout this series or the entire summer.

Virat Kohli has made it clear his team have ambitions to win every match they play in this summer and as the best batsman in the world, he will be undoubtedly the key man.


Yet, alongside Kohli, they have so much batting depth, with names like Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul likely to play big roles in the side racking up a score.

There are some selection questions for India, given Virat Kohli returns after missing the 3-0 drubbing of the West Indies. It’s likely Manish Pandey will miss out, but Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant will fight it out for the gloves. Hardik Pandya’s injury is just about the only blight on the radar.

India are in fine form, Australia are not and so the result of this, even if the Gabba deck is green and abling the fast bowlers to do their thing, should be pretty straight forward.

India to take a 1-0 lead.
