Watch India vs Australia T20 Series 2016 Live!

We witness one of the bilateral ODI series between India and Australia. The scoreline didn't do any justice to the quality of cricket that was played. We will discuss about this later in this post as we need to shift the impetus first towards T20 International cricket. Indian team gets into some serious business of T20 cricket from hereon till the end of T20 world cup 2016. So we can say India's preparation towards the ICC T20 world cup 2016 begins!

Lot of cricket, isn't it?

Talking about the ODI series, both the teams played equally well. The only difference was the Indian team couldn't capitalise on opportunities while Australians grabbed them with both hands. None of the matches could be terms one-sided but at the same time Australia cruised to victories in first two. 3000 plus runs were scored in five ODI matches out of which 400 plus were scored by Rohit Sharma. He deserved the Man of the Series award. Manish Pandey showed his skills in the last ODI to take India home!

Virat Kohli too is in a supreme form! He scored a lot of runs. Ajinkya Rahane is injured and hence he was out of picture. The Indian team will have changes in the T20 squad with the likes of Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh and Ashish Nehra. As far as the bowling is concerned, a lot would rely on the likes of Ashwin and Jadeja. They have been out of form in the ODI series. 

For Australia, skipper Smith, Warner, Marsh, Bailey are all scoring runs. Infact the flat pitches are enabling easy runs for the batsmen. Tough time for the bowlers! One who bowls the heart out will get wickets. Faulkner hasn't been too impressive. Hastings and Richardson did a good job so far.

Here is the schedule for T20 series:
26 January 2016, India vs Australia 1st T20 match at Adelaide Oval, Adelaide
29 January 2016, India vs Australia 2nd T20 match at MCG, Melbourne
31 January 2016, India vs Australia 3rd T20 match at SCG, Sydney

Update - India has nailed the series 3-0 and topped the ICC t20 ranking chart. India will now lock horns with Sri Lanka for a bilateral T20 series. This will be followed by Asia Cup 2016.
