The team could not show the kind of performance that was expected from the Indian cricket team in the Asia Cup-2022. The team captained by Rohit Sharma had reached UAE as a strong contender for the title but returned only from Super-4. This defeat has left many questions in front of the team management and the answer to these questions will start against Australia from Tuesday. Rahi would like to find him in the three-match T20 series.

This series is a good opportunity for India to test its preparations for the ICC T20 World Cup starting in Australia from next month. Team India will try to solve the issue related to its proper combination especially the middle order before the World Cup.

India’s bowling will be strong

In the six matches to be held before the World Cup, some fast bowlers may have been rested, but except this, India is going with its strong team. After Australia, India will host South Africa for three matches. Maintaining flexibility in the T20 format would have been important but captain Rohit Sharma has already made it clear that his players will try to find answers to all questions ahead of the ICC event in Australia. Although India batted well in the Asia Cup, it also made many changes during this period. India’s bowling weaknesses also came to the fore in this tournament, but the return of Harshal Patel and Jasprit Bumrah has strengthened the attack.

Rohit made it clear that only KL Rahul will open the innings with him in the World Cup, but there is a possibility that Virat Kohli will open the innings with him. Kohli, who scored a century in his last T20 innings, can be fielded as an opener. But Rohit has said that such a thing will be seen in only a few matches.

Will Pant or Karthik?

The top four batsmen in the Indian batting order are fixed but it is not yet decided whether Rishabh Pant will be selected as the wicketkeeper in the playing XI or Dinesh Karthik. Due to the injury of Ravindra Jadeja, Bharat Pant will be selected as a left-handed batsman. The reason may give preference to Karthik. Karthik has been roped in for the role of the finisher. He barely got a chance to bat in the Asia Cup but the team management may give him an opportunity to spend some time at the crease in the next two weeks. Deepak Hooda played in all the Super Four matches in the Asia Cup but there is no clarity on his role in the team.

Trying to make a bowling combination

Due to Jadeja’s injury during the Asia Cup, the bowling balance in the team was disturbed. India was forced to play with five bowlers and did not have a sixth option in bowling. If India keeps Axar Patel, who has been replaced by Hardik Pandya and Jadeja, in the playing XI, then it will have an additional bowling option. Along with the fast bowling attack of Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal and Hardik, there could be two spinners in the form of Axar and Yuzvendra Chahal. Keeping in mind the conditions of Australia, the team management will prepare the team combination for these matches.

Eyes on Finch and David

Australia, on the other hand, has come to India without some key players including David Warner. Warner has been rested while Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis and Mitchell Marsh have been given time to recover from their injuries. All attention will be on captain Aaron Finch, who recently retired from ODIs due to his consistent poor performance. He will try to return to form before the World Cup. All eyes will also be on another player Tim David, who will make his Australian debut after playing international cricket for Singapore.

The teams are as follows:

Australia: Aaron Finch (c), Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Tim David, Nathan Ellis, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Josh Inglis, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Daniel Sams, Steve Smith, Matthew Wade, Adam Zampay
