IND vs AUS Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Nov 26, 2023

India pulled off its biggest-ever chase in T20 international as a young dynamic team beat the Aussies. It was a high-scoring contest and could have gone either way but the result is that bookmakers have India as the favorite to win the next one!

Let us have a closer look at both teams and see which one is likely to emerge the winner. 

India vs Australia Head-to-Head T20 Cricket

India has now won 16 out of the 26 T20 matches played between the two teams. The contests have been quite even off-late but India now has four wins in its previous six matches against Australia.

India came out all guns blazing with the bat and managed to make a target of 208 look quite gettable. in fact, had it not been for some hiccups in the last couple of overs, India would have won with 6-8 balls to spare. However, those who watched the match will know that the game was a lot closer and could have easily gone the other way. 

With a win under their belt, it is unlikely that India will make any change to its playing eleven. The strength of the team remains its batting. Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, SKY, Ishan Kishan, Tilak Varma, and Rinku Singh make a formidable batting lineup. 

We cannot remember a time when so many attacking left-handers played for India at the same time! 

The template for the batting will be the same. Go hard from he start and do no stop even if you lose a few wickets. SKY's consistency in the T20 format is as baffling as his lack of runs in the ODI's. He could be the player to watch yet again, although we think Yashasvi Jaiswal and Tilak Varma might be better value picks. 

The bowling lineup for India is a bit weak. Apart from Mukesh Singh, and to some extent Axar Patel, there was no one that managed to any sort of impact. Also, it has to be mentioned that Ravi Bishnoi is one of the worst fielders at the international level and that will always count against him.

Australia rested some of its best players like Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, and Adam Zampa for the previous match. Will one loss cause them to bring their big guns back or will they continue to test out their bench strength? We think someone like Glenn Maxwell might come back into the team but they will avoid too many changes. 

Australia's batting looked in good shape with Josh Inglis scoring the fastest-ever handed in this format for an Australian. Also, we did not see the best of Matt Short but he is another player to watch out for. Steve Smith looks like a misfit in the T20 format and although Australia is making him open, we think it is just a matter of time before he finds himself out of the lineup in this form of the game. 

There is plenty of power with Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, and Matthew Wade in the middle-order but perhaps the depth in the Aussie lineup is a bit lacking. If Maxwell comes in for maybe Aaron Hardie or even Steve Smith, Australia will immediately be a stronger team. 

The bowling performance by Australia was very poor. Tanveer Sangha looked like a net bowler that India would love to face in every match, Sean Abbit kept bowling half-volleys, and not a single bowler was able to generate any kind of pace. 

Bringing in someone like Kane Richardson could end up benefitting the team quite a lot.

IND vs AUS Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is likely to want to field first. Two out of the three T20 internationals played at this venue have been won by the team that has chased. Also, there is a bit of rain around and DLS could come into play.

Pitch and Conditions

The weather has been a bit mixed in Thiruvananthapuram in the leadup to the match. We could see some rain and some interruptions on match day. The pitch at the Greenfield stadium is excellent for batting. The outfield is not very big and plenty of big hits can be scored. 

The fast bowlers get a bit of help under lights and that is something to watch out for but after that, the batters should be able to make merry. 

IND vs AUS Betting Tips

We think the two teams are quite evenly matched and this is why following the price is the way to go. India is now the favorite at all the bookmakers, something we feel undervalues the threat that the Aussies pose. We could easily see a couple of big players come back and make a massive difference to the lineup. 

For the time being, the experienced Australian lineup with a power batting unit and a bowling unit likely to improve is the team to back. 

Bet on Australia to win.
