Team India was defeated by Australia in the World Cup final and will play a 5-match T20 series against them starting Nov 23. This sudden series, just after the World Cup final, was part of the Future Tours Programme. India were the favorites but the Aussies won 9 games straight to defeat South Africa and India. This T20I series will lack the usual color and stars, as neither team’s key players will feature. Suryakumar Yadav will lead India’s second line, and India has to prove their capability of winning in the T20 format after their World Cup defeat. Australia has some dangerous players, but India’s cricketers are eager to prove their abilities against them. India’s T20I series will be important and an opportunity to show their skills. This series is part one-upmanship.
