Match Preview

AUS vs IND: India will take on Australia in the ninth warm-up game of the ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2022. Both teams will be playing their first warm-up game before heading into the main event. The match will be hosted at the infamous ground of The Gabba in Brisbane. 

Aaron Finch will be leading the defending champions for probably the last time. They are having a rocky run as a team. They lost to India and England in the back-to-back T20 bilateral series. And to add to the misery, their star opener, David Warner, suffered a neck injury while playing against England. His availability is still under wraps. 

Meanwhile, India received a big blow before landing in Australia as their star seamer, Jasprit Bumrah, was ruled out owing to a recurring back injury. Mohammad Shami has joined the contingent as his replacement. They had a decent outing in the warm-up games against Western Australia. Rohit Sharma and co. are the favorites in the tournament. Hence, they would want to win this warm-up game to start the main event on a positive note.

Match Predictions for AUS vs IND

As it is a warm-up game, all members of the squad can feature in the match. Both teams are decked up nicely as a unit. The star-stubbed batting line-ups will enjoy a great time. A good, high-scoring match is on the cards for sure. Nevertheless, the chasing team is most likely to win this game. Australia is the probable winner of this fixture.
