AU-W vs IN-W Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Two gargantuan units square off against each other in a ripper of a summit clash
When the first round of encounters were completed in the ongoing T20 Tri-series between India, Australia and England, this final was far from envisioned. India were languishing in the trenches of the league standings with the Asian unit finding it extremely treacherous to unlock the true potential prevelant in their ranks.
However, the second round of fixtures completely changed the scenario with India defeating Australia by a momentous 7 wicket margin to reignite their bid for a spot in the coveted summit clash. And the final nail was hammered down by Australia after they cut open England with an imperious bowling effort in the culminating encounter to ensure both they and India squared off against each other today.
Curbing England’s run chase of 133 at a mere 116, Australia showed why they are held in such high regard in the cricketing arena. Where they’ll be buoyed by that win, the Indians come into this one propelled by their successful pursuit of 174 against Australia the last time around, events which are going to see us be immersed in a humdinger today.
With both the sides having defeated each other once previously in the series, the margins for a win today are going to be extremely fine. There’s little to separate between these two mammoth units with us set to be in for a closely contested battle, one we envision Australia just about winning given their consistency in the batting order.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A solid wicket for the bats, this is a surface where the team winning the toss will be looking to step out and field first. The wicket doesn’t change much with the batters finding it way too easy to crunch the ball to the fence given the ample room and space they are accorded with.
