India vs Australia on November 23
After failing to clinch the ODI World Cup, team India is back in action as they are set to play a five-match T20I series against Australia, starting November 23 in Visakhapatnam. The majority of the senior players in the form of skipper Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami among a few others have been given rest, while Hardik Pandya is yet to recover from his ankle injury. Australia too have given rest to some of the key players after a hectic World Cup. Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Cameron Green, David Warner and a few others have been given rest as Travis Head will be leading the team. Interestingly, Steven Smith has been named in the squad as he is likely to play at number three. With a couple of home Test series against West Indies and Pakistan, the legendary batter was expected to take a break but that hasn’t been the case. Meanwhile, both set of teams have a lot of youngsters in the mix, who don’t get enough opportunities to play international cricket. For players like Tanveer Sangha, Aaron Hardie and Spencer Johnson, this is a brilliant opportunity to exhibit their potential as the IPL auction is just a couple of weeks away. Last year, Cameron Green proved himself against India and he managed to become one of the most expensive cricketers in the history of franchise cricket. When it comes to India, players like Ruturaj Gaikwad, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tilak Varma, Rinku Singh and Ravi Bishnoi will be closely monitored. When the senior cricketers return, there will be a shortage of places in the playing XI and hence, this is the perfect opportunity to prove themselves and get ready ahead of the tour to South Africa.
Best economical pick – Arshdeep Singh has slid down the pecking order as far as ODI cricket is concerned but he continues to be one of India's most potent weapons in T20 cricket. After having a dismal Indian Premier League campaign earlier this year, Arshdeep bounced back with a decent showing in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and helped Punjab go the distance. In the finals, he picked up four wickets for 23 runs against Baroda in a game in which 426 runs were scored.
Top captains & vice captains – The Australian southpaw Travis Head scored a match-winning century in the finals of the ODI World Cup 2023 against India. He looked in sublime touch and will hope to continue his purple patch against a less experienced Indian bowling attack. Head has a formidable strike rate of 140.67 and the Indian pacers would want to see the back of him before he gets his eye in. Suryakumar Yadav will be back in his most beloved format of the game. India’s T20 sensation, Suryakumar Yadav, will be leading Indian side for the first time in his career. Surya had a dismal ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 campaign as a batter and scored only 106 runs in 7 innings. This will be a massive opportunity for Suryakumar Yadav as skipper, and he will be taking up the role of number 4 batter.
Smart pick – Australian leg-spinner Adam Zampa ended up as second highest wicket-taker in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 and took 23 wickets in 11 games. Zampa had a few failures initially but made a roaring comeback in the mega event. Australia will be using Adam Zampa’s form to their benefit in the upcoming five-match T20I series against India starting on Thursday in Visakhapatnam.
Cautious Pick – Marcus Stoinis has not been in the best of form in the recent times and can be left out of fantasy teams in this game.
My XI – Travis Head (Captain), Suryakumar Yadav (Vice-Captain), Arshdeep Singh, Adam Zampa, Glenn Maxwell, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Mathew Wade, Ishan Kishan, Kane Richardson, Yashsavi Jaiswal, Axar Patel
