IND vs AUS Betting Tips

  • Virat Kohli averaged 92.00 across the 2022 Asia Cup and the right-hander is our pick for India’s highest run scorer in this match. Jasprit Bumrah returns to the India side for the first time since July after missing recent tours. He is well worth backing as India’s top wicket taker against Australia.
  • Aaron Finch has scored 19 international white-ball centuries including two in IT20s. The opener and skipper is our tip for Australia’s highest run scorer in this game. Adam Zampa has taken 10 wickets from his last five internationals and he is a strong choice for Australia’s top wicket taker against India.
  • With a reputation for performing on the big stage, we recommend backing Virat Kohli to score over 27.5 runs in this match.

IND vs AUS 1st T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

The opening game of a three-match IT20 series between India and Australia gets underway on Tuesday evening at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur. India beat Afghanistan by 101 runs in their last game in this format. Australia lost to Sri Lanka by four wickets in their last IT20. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway at 19:30 local time.

India had an up and down tournament in the 2022 Asia Cup but ultimately failing to qualify for the final was a failure. They have some of their top players returning in this match and they will be very hard to beat.

Australia are the current world champions in this format but will not be at full strength during this series. It will be an uphill struggle for Australia to win this game.
