How about the international cricket calendar? Just like England’s three-match ODI series days after winning the T20 World Cup in Australia last year, nothing highlights the absurd schedule like a five-match T20I series kicking off four days after a World Cup Final.

As a result, we can expect to see a number of Australia’s World Cup players rested, including Travis Head, Adam Zampa, and Glenn Maxwell. However, the silver lining of such a series is it gives other players the chance to perform. The likes of Aaron Hardie, Matthew Short, and Tanveer Sangha will be keen to make a mark, with the experience of Steve Smith (possibly), Tim David, and Matthew Wade around them.

For India, the excitement in their squad stems from the fact that a number of talented IPL players will feature. Rinku Singh took the 2023 edition by storm, while the likes of Ruturaj Gaikwad, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Arshdeep Singh, and Ravi Bishnoi are set to feature. There is no doubt they start as favourites at home, but the Australians, even with newer faces and a recent 50-over World Cup title, can’t be taken lightly.

IND vs AUS 1st T20 2023: Possible Playing XIs

Suryakumar Yadav will lead a new-look India team. They have a few decisions to make regarding the team combination.

India: 1. Yashasvi Jaiswal, 2. Ruturaj Gaikwad, 3. Suryakumar Yadav (c), 4. Ishan Kishan (wk), 5. Tilak Varma, 6. Rinku Singh, 7. Axar Patel/Washington Sundar, 8. Ravi Bishnoi, 9. Arshdeep Singh, 10. Prasidh Krishna, 11. Mukesh Kumar/Avesh Khan

Which World Cup players will play for Australia is a bit of a mystery. Travis Head was looking a little worse for wear after celebrating Australia’s triumph.

Two players who could feature are Steve Smith and Josh Inglis. Smith could open.

Australia: 1. Steve Smith, 2. Matthew Short, 3. Aaron Hardie, 4. Josh Inglis, 5. Marcus Stoinis, 6. Tim David, 7. Matthew Wade (c & wk), 8. Sean Abbott, 9. Nathan Ellis, 10. Jason Behrendorff, 11. Tanveer Sangha

IND vs AUS 1st T20 2023 Dream11 Prediction: Fantasy Cricket Tips

India:

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad had an excellent IPL. In 15 innings, Gaikwad has hammered 590 runs at an average of 42.1 and strike rate of 147.5. Also, Gaikwad recently struck 102* for Maharashtra against Vidarbha.
  • Suryakumar Yadav returns to his favourite format and is a good pick in fantasy teams. Since the start of 2022, SKY has smashed 2,505 T20 runs at an average of 46.39 and strike rate of 172.64.
  • Tilak Varma has hit 816 runs at a strike rate of 136.91 between overs 7-16 since the start of last year. But, he strikes at just 115.9 in T20Is in this period. Can he improve on this?
  • Rinku Singh when chasing in T20s in 2023: 308 runs, avg. 102.7, SR 172.1.
  • Arshdeep Singh will be key in both the powerplay and death overs. In 35 T20s this year, Arshdeep has taken 16 powerplay wickets (econ.7.90) and 24 wickets between overs 17-20 (econ. 10.14).

Australia:

  • Steve Smith when opening the batting in T20s: 10 inns, 512 runs, avg. 56.89, SR 161.01.
  • Matthew Short can offer plenty of value to fantasy teams. He is likely to open the batting and provide overs with the ball as well. He is striking at 144.6 in 27 T20s this year (694 runs).
  • In T20s since the start of 2022, Marcus Stoinis has hit 377 runs at a strike rate of 199.47 between overs 17 and 20. Tim David is also very strong in this period, striking at 205.98.
  • Jason Behrendhorff will be key against Gaikwad. Since the start of 2021, the India opener has been dismissed 12 times by left-arm seam at an average of 29.75 and strike rate of 135.22.
  • Also, Behrendhorff has taken seven wickets in T20Is vs India at an average of 14.57 and economy of 6.80.
  • Nathan Ellis took 3/30 in his only T20I against India last year. Overall, he has picked up 18 wickets in eight T20Is at an average of 11.88 and economy of 7.13.

Other Stats and Facts

  • India beat Australia 2-1 in a T20I series last year. Axar Patel was player of the series.
  • Suryakumar Yadav hit 115 runs at a strike rate of 185.48 in three T20Is against Australia in 2022.
  • Nathan Ellis vs. Suryakumar Yadav could be an important battle. In 17 balls in T20s, SKY has scored 24 runs and has been dismissed once.

The bowlers may have a say in this game. In an ODI earlier this year, Australia bowled India out for 117 and won by ten wickets with 234 balls to spare. In three T20Is on this ground, the average first innings score is 129, which includes Australia’s victory over India in 2019 where they restricted the hosts to 126.

There is a chance of afternoon showers, but there should be a full match with a cloudy forecast.
