India’s Asia Cup 2022 campaign ended on a sour note as the Men in Blue crashed out of the continental event following defeats from Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The team would now be looking to pose a serious challenge in the 20-20 World Cup. The upcoming series against Australia would be a great test and chance for finalising a solid playing XI.
Let’s look at all the details about the upcoming T20I series between India and Australia.
India vs Australia Team News:
India started the Asia Cup 2022 with a bang defeating their arch-rival Pakistan. A plethora of options available to the team along with overconfidence however led to the team crashing out of the tournament. Virat Kohli’s comeback to form would be an immense positive for the team. All the other players especially the middle order would need to step up.
Australia on the other hand have recently defeated Zimbabwe and New Zealand in the ongoing Chappell Hadlee Trophy. Captain Aaron Finch has stepped down from his leadership post following recent dismal performances but would be leading the team in the 20-20 World Cup. Steve Smith has also regained his touch after producing a solid century, his 12th after two years.
