India and Australia will face each other on Tuesday (September 20) in the first T20I of the three-match series at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali. This is Australia’s first tour to India since 2019, when they took a comprehensive win after winning both matches. Australia last played a T20I series in June against Sri Lanka, winning the three-game series by a 2-1 margin.

They also defeated New Zealand in the recently completed ODI series. India, on the other hand, lost to Sri Lanka and Pakistan in the Super Four stage of the Asian Cup, resulting in an exit.
These two teams have so far played 23 matches against each other in this format with India winning 13 matches and Australia winning 9 matches. Another good series is expected here between these two sides.
The return of Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel bodes well for India, but Australia is a force to be reckoned with. Despite the lack of key players in David Warner, Mitchell Starc and Mitchell Marsh, the Aussies still have plenty of firepower in all divisions
