India Tour of Australia 2020-21

In a tour which includes key fixtures at the top of the ICC World Test Championship table, India travel to Australia for three ODIS, three T20is and four test matches.

The two giants of the world game go head-to-head in the three series, which also coincides with the phased return of spectators to Australian sport.

The series starts with three one day internationals, with the 50-over series kicking off in Sydney on November 27. All three matches form part of the inaugural ICC Cricket World Cup Super League.

Three T20 internationals follow, in Canberra and Sydney, before attention turns to the main event: the four-test series for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. 

Including the iconic Boxing Day test at the MCG, the series is also key in the ICC World Test Championship, with India currently top of the table and Australia second.

Just 64 points separate the two teams and, with 30 points available for the winner of each test, Australia could leapfrog India at the top of the table and both could pull clear of third-placed England.

Australia vs India ODI series

The two beaten semi-finalists at the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup start the tour with three 50-over matches. 

Australia have already started their ICC Cricket World Cup Super League campaign already, beating England 2-1 back in September.

This will be India’s first matches in the inaugural tournament – which forms part of qualifying for the 2023 Cricket World Cup – meanwhile.

Australia Team Squad for ODI

Aaron Finch (c), Pat Cummins (vc), Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey (wk), Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Moises Henriques, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Daniel Sams, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa

India Team Squad for ODI

Virat Kohli (c), KL Rahul (vc, wk), Mayank Agarwal, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shikhar Dhawan, Subman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Ravindra Jadeja, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Navdeep Saini, Sanju Samson (wk), Mohammad Shami, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav

Australia vs India Key Players

  • Aaron Finch (Australia)

    The Australian captain was underwhelming by his standards at the IPL, playing alongside opposite number Virat Kohli. His ODI record speaks for itself, however, as he starts the series just 17 runs short of 5,000 in the format. If he can regain his best form, he can lead Australia to a series win.

  • Glenn Maxwell (Australia)

    Top-scored in both of Australia’s wins against England in their last ODI series. He smashed 77 from 59 balls in the opening game, and thumped a stunning 108 from 90 balls in the series decider. It took him beyond 3,000 runs in ODI cricket, in less balls (2,440) than any other batsman in ODI history.

  • Adam Zampa (Australia)

    The spinner took ten wickets in the three-game series against England, leading the Australian bowling figures in all three games. Like Maxwell and Finch, he endured a frustrating IPL and may feel he has a point to prove as a result.

  • Virat Kohli (India)

    Faded after a fine start to the IPL but the India captain returns to the international fold having already showed the enforced break has not had an impact on his world-leading batting. In ODI cricket, he still averages a phenomenal 59.33. He has passed 50 on 101 occasions, turning 43 of those occasions into centuries.

  • KL Rahul (India)

    Fresh from his Orange Cap from the 2020 Indian Premier League, the big-hitting opener averages 47.65 in ODI cricket and has a big chance to start to cement his status in this format.

  • Jasprit Bumrah (India)

    Took 27 wickets in the IPL as he bowled Mumbai Indians to victory. In ODI cricket, he not only has 104 wickets in 64 matches but he has an excellent economy rate at the start and end of the innings too.

Betting odds

Australia vs India ODI Series Betting odds

Australia are 1.66 favourites with Bet365 to win the ODI series on home soil. India, on the other hand, are 2.20 to win.

Australia are also favourites with Betway, at 1.70 to win the ODI series. India, meanwhile, are 2.05 to win the series.

Expert Prediction

Australia vs India ODI Series Prediction

Some of Australia’s top stars struggled to make an impact in the IPL and it is their Indian counterparts – the likes of Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan Bumrah and Kohli – who arrive at this series in top form. However, Australia have already made a winning start to the inaugural ICC Cricket World Cup Super League against England and have home advantage for this series too. Do not underestimate that fact in Sydney and Canberra – Australia can claim victory.

Australia to win the ODI series 2-1

Australia vs India Top Bet

Australia are 2.50 with Betway to win the ODI series 2-1.

Australia vs India T20i series

As India gear up to host the 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup – after the 2020 tournament in Australia was cancelled – the two nations then turn their attention to 20-over cricket.

The three-game series starts in Canberra on December 4 before two matches in Sydney.

After India’s stars geared up for this tournament with some fine form at the IPL, they will be looking to continue in that vain of form in 20-over cricket.

Australia Team Squad for T20

Aaron Finch (c), Pat Cummins (vc), Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey (wk), Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Moises Henriques, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Daniel Sams, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa

India Team Squad for T20

Virat Kohli (c), KL Rahul (vc, wk), Mayank Agarwal, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Ravindra Jadeja, T Natarajan, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Navdeep Saini, Sanju Samson (wk), Mohammed Shami, Washington Sundar

Australia vs India Key Players

  • David Warner (Australia)

    The top-scoring Australian batsman at the IPL, the big-hitting left-handed opener has proved on plenty of occasions he can come out on top against India’s best. He scored 548 runs for Sunrisers Hyderabad at this year’s IPL.

  • Shikhar Dhawan (India)

    Inconsistent at the IPL, and yet his best moments included back-to-back unbeaten centuries and a key 78 in the play-offs against Sunrisers Hyderabad. KL Rahul and Virat Kohli’s form is well known, but if Dhawan can also produce more of his best moments, it elevates India’s batting to yet another level.

Australia vs India Test Series

Finally, attention turns to the test series as India and Australia both look to take a step closer to the ICC World Test Championship Final.

The top teams in the inaugural championship go head-to-head in four matches, including the iconic Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Both teams will also be competing for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, which India currently hold after their 2-1 win in Australia in 2018-19 – their first ever test series in Australia.

Australia, however, are big favourites to hit back on home soil. They are back at full strength now and back in good form too – or were before the enforced break.

Australia Team Squad for Test

Tim Paine (c, wk), Pat Cummins (vc), Sean Abbott, Joe Burns, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Michael Neser, James Pattinson, Will Pucovski, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Wade, David Warner

India Team Squad for Test

Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane (vc), Mayank Agarwal, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Shubman Gill, Ravindra Jadeja, Rishabh Pant (wk), Cheteshwar Pujara, KL Rahul, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Shami, Rohit Sharma, Prithvi Shaw, Mohammed Shiraj, Hanuma Vihari, Kuldeep Yadav, Umesh Yadav

Australia vs India Key Players

  • Steve Smith (Australia)

    Absent when these teams last met, in the middle of his suspension, the former captain has been magnificent since he returned to action. In test cricket, he has scored 1028 runs in 14 innings in the ICC World Test Championship so far.

  • Marnus Labuschagne (Australia)

    Leading the run-scoring charts in the ICC World Test Championship, he has hit seven 50s and four centuries in his 15 innings for Australia. He has 1,249 runs in total at an average of 83.26.

  • Pat Cummins (Australia)

    The world’s number one bowler according to the ICC Test Rankings, he has taken 49 wickets in ten matches in the Test Championship so far – leading the way for Australia.

  • Mayank Agarwal (India)

    At the top of the order, the batsman has already hit two double-centuries at the top of the order in the ICC World Test Championship. He has scored 974 runs in just 17 test innings, at an average of 57.29.

  • Mohammed Shami (India)

    The only player outside of England and Australia to feature in the top five charts in the ICC World Test Championship so far. He is fourth in the wicket-taking list with 36 in India’s nine matches so far, at an average of 18.63.

  • Ajinkya Rahane (India

    With Virat Kohli departing after the first test for paternity leave, the vice-captain will need to step up both for his batting and his leadership. He still averages 42.88 with the bat in test cricket, however, after 11 centuries and 22 half-centuries.

Betting odds

Australia vs India Test Series Betting odds

Australia are 1.61 favourites to regain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy by winning this series with Bet365. India are 4.33 outsiders, while you can get 4.50 on a drawn series – a result that would see India keep the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and stay top of the ICC World Test Championship.

Expert Prediction

Australia vs India Test Series Prediction

Australia are favourites to win the test series and understandably so. India might have won on their last visit to Australia but the hosts were seriously depleted at the time. With Steve Smith and David Warner back in the squad and Marnus Labuschagne in fine form, Australia are a very different beast this time. 

Smith is the world’s leading test batsman, while Pat Cummins tops the bowling charts and with strength in depth in both departments too, Australia are big favourites. Virat Kohli’s absence after the first test will also deplete India, while Australia have the added bonus of several players having found their first-class form in the Sheffield Shield too.

Final Verdict

Back Australia to win the test series at odds of 1.071 with bet365 and 1.06 with betway
