The first match of the three-match T20 series between India and Australia will be played in Mohali today. T20, the shortest format of cricket, was played between the two teams in India for the first time in 2007. There was only one match in the series and India won the match.
This is the first time in 15 years that both the teams will play a three-match T20 series. The last time both the teams landed on Indian soil in 2019 to play T20 series. Team India was defeated 0-2 in this series. That is, this time Team India has a chance to settle the three-year old account.
Let us tell you all the big records along with the pitch report, head to head, possible playing XI of today’s match…
First of all know India’s top performer against Australia
Difficult to beat Australia in India
The overall record of the Indian team against Australia is better, but when it comes to the competition on Indian soil, the matter becomes a bit challenging. In India, both the teams have met 8 times, out of which Team India has won 4 matches and Australia has won 3 matches. One match yielded no result.
How will the pitch be?
Dew can prove to be a big factor in Mohali. In such a situation, winning the toss and opting to bowl first would be correct. Due to the dew, the ball will slip and the bowlers will get less help. This will directly benefit the batsmen.
Batting first, India has won 5 out of 9 matches against Australia. At the same time, chasing the target, 8 out of 13 matches have been won. At the same time, Australia team has been successful in winning 5 matches while batting first and chasing 4 targets.
Where can I watch the competition?
The live telecast of the first T20 match will be done on Star Sports Network. On the other hand, if you want to watch the match on mobile, then for this you have to download the Disney Plus Hotstar app, as far as the timing of the matches is concerned, then all the matches will start at 7.30 pm Indian time. At the same time, you can read the information of the match moment by moment on the Dainik Bhaskar app.
