India vs Australia 1st T20 match is going to be held in ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam at 7 p.m. Surya Kumar Yadav will have to shake off the disappointment of the defeat in the World Cup final and lead a young Indian team in the five-match T20 Sri Lanka against Australia starting here from Thursday. It is not such an easy task to forget and then Suryakumar Yadav has to lead the team against a strong Australia in just 96 hours. He will not even get a chance to introspect but T20 is his favorite format and he is eager to play in it. And he will be ready.
India’s young players will be tested in front of Australia
Suryakumar Yadav, being the captain of the team, his responsibility will not only be to register wins but also to identify those players who can stake their claim for the ICC T20 World Cup to be held in West Indies and America next year.
Rinku Singh has impressed in all the matches he has played for India so far. The same applies to Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tilak, and Mukesh, while Jitesh, who is scheduled to perform during the Asian Games, will have to wait due to the presence of Ishan Kishan.
These Indian players have so far faced mediocre attacks in the West Indies, Ireland, and Asian Games, so their real test will be against the Australian attack with bowlers like Jason Behrendorff, Sean Abbott, and Nathan Ellis.
India has to play 11 T20 international matches before the IPL. After the two-month-long IPL, the T20 World Cup will be played, so the next few months will be very important for these young players as they strengthen their claim for a place in the team for the World Cup.
The bowlers will also be tested in this series. Ravi Bishnoi may get to play more matches while Prasidth Krishna, Aavesh Khan, Mukesh Kumar, and Arshdeep may be made to cry. Axar Patel, who is returning after recovering from injury, may be made to play Series and may also get a chance to play in five matches.
