Team India is in Australia to play 3 ODIs, 3 T20s and 4 Test matches with the Aussies. Let’s take a look at five Indian players who can make an impact in the series.
V Kohli: All of India’s hopes will be pinned on the Indian captain, who showed fine form during the latter stages of the Indian T20 League. With Vice-Captain Rohit being sidelined from white-ball cricket due to an injury, India will be relying heavily on Kohli’s form.
KL Rahul: The elegant batsman has been roped in as India’s Vice-Captain in the absence of Rohit. He was in fine form throughout the Indian T20 League and will be hoping to continue his form against a formidable opponent like Australia.
Y Chahal: He is a proven spinner known to take regular wickets in the white-ball format of the game. He had a successful Indian T20 League season, taking 21 wickets, and has taken 15 wickets in 7 ODIs against Australia. He will surely be one to look out for in the upcoming series.
M Shami: He ended 2019 as one of India’s most successful and deadly pace bowlers. His raw pace and precision terrorize batting line-ups all across the world. He has a proven track record against the team from down under, having taken 25 wickets in 17 ODI matches against them.
J Bumrah: He may not have been part of the 2018-19 ODI series between the two teams but he was the go-to bowler for India in the 4-match Test series. He claimed 21 wickets in the 4 Tests that he played, and considering his Indian T20 League form, he’ll again be the one spearheading India’s pace attack.
