|Match:||IND vs AUS – 1st T20|
|Date:||Tue, Sep 20, 2022|
|Time:||01:30 PM (GMT)|
|Venue:||Bindra Stadium, Mohali|
|Toss:||Australia, Bowling 1st|
Pitch Report: It is a good batting surface. Expect a lot of runs. Expect India to reach 180-190, and that could be chased down as well with the dew coming down. Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell are my picks for this game. Spin would have a very small impact here.
Finch: Everything we do is in the build-up to the World Cup and it’s about getting a bit of information. I think you need to be tested and every time you come to India regardless of the team they put out, it’s a challenge. We’re bowling first and there might be dew around.
Rohit: Every game gives an opportunity to correct ourselves and over the course of the last 6-8 months, we’ve learnt about what we need to do to win games. Looking at what happened in the Asia Cup, gives us a chance to reflect. We try do do that [pick the strongest team] but we have injuries. Harshal is back and Bumrah is not playing and will probably play the second and third game. I come back from the Afghanistan game and Pant misses out.
Australia: Aaron Finch (capt), Cameron Green, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Josh Inglis, Tim David, Matthew Wade(wk), Pat Cummins, Nathan Ellis, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
India: Rohit Sharma (capt), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal
