IND Vs AUS Dream11 Team, Dream 11 Team, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: India face stern Australian test at home as they look to recover from their first defeat in the league.
Torching their way to the echelons of the FIH Pro League, India’s rampant ascendancy in the points tally was halted for the first time when they took to the middle the last time around. Tasting their first defeat against Belgium in the ongoing edition of the FIH Pro League, the Indians were refrained from moving into first place.
Currently in third after their opening two rounds of matches, when the hosts resume action in the marquee league today, they’ll be looking to rectify their 3-2 defeat to Belgium the last time around. With Australia coming up next for India, the home side have been dished out yet another stringent and staunch opposition, a side Indian has typically hated coming across against.
For Australia meanwhile, a win on the day would see them displace India and move into the third spot the hosts currently occupy. They are coming into this tie with immense momentum in their ranks after having trounced Great Britain 5-1, a rousing display which resonated the attacking might of this contingent.
IND Vs AUS Probable Winner
With two stalwarts of the game facing off against each other for this encounter, we are going to be revelled in an edge of the seat thriller today. Picking out a winner was a tricky proposition for us given the closely contested nature of this encounter however we envision India just about scramming their way to a win given their slightly more astute defence.

IND Vs AUS Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Whenever Indian have been in play in the league, Sreejesh Parattu has not left our side as the man in between the sticks. The shot stopper has come up with some tenacious displays, aptly halting shots from going in to see us make him our goal-keeper for the encounter.
IND Vs AUS Dream11 Defenders
India’s top scorer with 105 goals till now, Rupinder Pal Singh was an instant pick for us for the forthcoming encounter. He’s someone who has emerged as a mainstay in both the components of the side’s play with his ability to traverse the ball from defence to attack making him a flair filled player.
With a stunning 70 goals in his artillery, Harmanpreet Singh comes in as well from the Indian contingent while Australia’s top scorer with 64 goals, Jeremy Hayward becomes the sole pick from the visiting setup.
IND Vs AUS Dream11 Midfielders
The Indian captain, Manpreet Singh was an instant pick for us for this component. His ability to drive the ball into lethal and dangerous has massively rebuffed his side’s attacking play which along with his innate ability to convert corners and penalties makes him a must have selection for the contest.
We are pairing him alongside Vivek Sagar Prasad after he popped up with a goal in his foregone encounter, one which exemplified his enterprising nature as a player. From Australia elsewhere we’ll be beginning with Lachlan Sharp with the player having scored two in his last two encounters.
He’s partnered up with Aran Zalewski as we opt for an akin partnership from the Australian cauldron for this one.
IND Vs AUS Dream11 Forwards
The 80 goals for Mandeep Singh meant the expansive and myriad Indian striker was always going to be a regulation selection for us for the day. From Australia meanwhile we are getting in 16 goal man Tim Brand for the encounter alongside Tom Craig with both the players scoring in the side’s 5-1 rout of Great Britain the last time around.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Craig will captain our unit given his enigmatic showings in the league while Mandeep is our vice-captain.
