WSB Logo Orange 80x80The ODI World Cup has concluded, and we now head straight into a 5-game series where both World Cup finalists, Australia and India, are set to face each other in India. We analyse the odds for the first game, which will take place on Thursday, the 23rd of November, at the ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium.

 

 

INDIA

India looked the best team for the majority of the recent ODI World Cup, remaining undefeated throughout the tournament until the final. Unfortunately, in the final, they suffered their only loss, sending their fans home disappointed.

In their recent T20 matches, India has demonstrated strong form, securing six wins in their last ten games, with three losses and one ending in no result. These matches encompassed a series against the West Indies away (lost 3-2), Ireland away (won 2-0), and three games in the Asian Cricket Competition.

Squad

Suryakumar Yadav (Captain), Ruturaj Gaikwad (Vice-captain), Ishan Kishan, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tilak Varma, Rinku Singh, Jitesh Sharma (Wk), Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, Shivam Dubey, Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh, Prasidh Krishna, Avesh Khan, Mukesh Kumar.

AUSTRALIA

Despite Australia losing their 1st 2 games in this year's ODI World Cup, they managed to pull it back and earn themselves a spot in the semifinals. They then went on to defeat South Africa and India in the semis and the final, securing their sixth ODI World Cup title.

Australia has also displayed strong form in their T20 appearances this year, including a three-game series in South Africa where they won all three matches. They are now on a 6 match T20 winning streak.

Squad

Matthew Wade (Captain), Aaron Hardie, Jason Behrendorff, Sean Abbott, Tim David, Nathan Ellis, Travis Head, Josh Inglis, Glenn Maxwell, Tanveer Sangha, Matt Short, Steve Smith, Marcus Stoinis, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa.

 

HEAD-TO-HEAD

The last time these two teams faced each other in a T20 was in a three-game series in September of last year in India. India won the series 2-1.

India 23/20

Australia 15/20

 

Suggested Bet: Australia to be over 25.5 at first dismissal 17/20

Australia will enter this game with confidence following their success in the World Cup and I am betting they get their innings off to a good start.

Suggested Bet: India to win at 23/20

While India will be hurting after the CWC loss this is very much a different squad and rather than a hangover I am backing them to come out firing.
