India vs Australia 2nd T20 2023, Match Prediction

Welcome back to our readers, it was a close match, however, Australia was in the game till the last ball, the good part for Australia is that this is not even their proper 2nd string as well. However, what India had played, they are the youngsters India is banking on for the upcoming World Cup and they haven’t been able to make the mark when it comes to bowling.

Let’s see who all Australia might be playing:

  • Mathew Short
  • Travis Head in place of Steven Smith
  • Josh Inglis
  • Aaron Hardie
  • Marcus Stonis
  • Tim David
  • Mathew Wade
  • Kane Richardson
  • Nathan Ellis
  • Jason Behrendroff
  • Tanveer Sangha

We are expecting a couple of changes in the Australian playing XI Steven Smith will be replaced by Travis Head and Abbott to be replaced by Kane Richardson as he has more experience playing in Indian conditions.

Now let’s see the Indian Playing XI

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad
  • Yashasvi Jaiswal
  • Ishan Kishan
  • Suryakumar Yadav
  • Tilak Verma
  • Rinku Singh
  • Washington Sundar
  • Ravi Bishnoi
  • Arshdeep Singh
  • Mukesh Kumar
  • Avesh Khan

Though I would have left out Arshdeep out of the Indian Playing XI he should not be even picked in the Indian Squad, he has no skills, and he should be left out as there is no future for him with his limited skill set. But knowing current Indian management he will still be playing, but still Avesh Khan will take the place of Prasidh Krishna. Batting had done well, so we should not see any changes in it.

India vs Australia 2nd T20 2023 – Playing Conditions and Prediction  

The match will be played at Thiruvananthapuram, and we are expecting batting-friendly conditions but bowling second will be tough as it is being played towards the south of India, and we can expect the ball to be wet and it won’t be easy for the bowlers to grip the ball, especially when it comes to spin bowlers. However, if there is no due, the chasing might become very tough, as the pitch might become a little slow and low.

If Australia wins the toss, they would like to bat first and post a good total, anything around 180-190 runs will be a good total on this pitch and they have the bowlers to defend it as they have batters who can pitch in with bowling as well. Most of the bowlers that they have are known to bowl cutters and cross seam bowling as it helps in bowling when the ball is wet. We expect Australia to defend the total this and even if they bat second, we expect them to chase it as well.

India, we expect them to bowl a little better than the last time and restrict Australia to a lower total, but even then we expect Australia to win this encounter.
