Digital Desk: After a disheartening 6-wicket loss to the Kangaroos in the World Cup final on Sunday, India is shifting its focus to the next challenge a T20 series against Australia at home, scheduled to kick off on November 23. Although the official squad for the upcoming series is yet to be unveiled, it is widely anticipated that most players from the World Cup final will secure spots in the Indian lineup. However, the inclusion of seasoned players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma remains uncertain, given their absence from T20 matches since the last 20-over World Cup.
Compounding the team's concerns is the news that India's T20 captain, Hardik Pandya, who sustained an ankle injury during the ongoing World Cup, is expected to miss the upcoming T20 series against Australia. Speculations are also rife about his participation in the ODI and T20 series in South Africa, as his recovery from the ankle injury is projected to take at least two more months, according to a report by the Indian Express last week. A BCCI source, cited by PTI, hinted that Pandya's return to play might align with the series in South Africa.
The T20 series, commencing on November 23, will unfold across five venues - Vizag, Trivandrum, Guwahati, Nagpur, and Hyderabad. The schedule is as follows:
1. India vs Australia 1st T20: Vizag
2. India vs Australia 2nd T20: November 26 in Trivandrum
3. India vs Australia 3rd T20: November 28 in Guwahati
4. India vs Australia 4th T20: December 1 in Nagpur
5. India vs Australia 5th T20: December 3 in Hyderabad
For cricket enthusiasts eager to catch the action, the India vs Australia T20 series will be broadcast live on Sports18 and Colors Cineplex. Additionally, the matches will be available for live streaming on the JioCinema app and website, starting from 7 pm on the respective match days. As India regroups after the World Cup setback, the T20 series against Australia promises to be a crucial test for the team's resilience and determination on home soil.
