India’s Tour of Australia 2020
Australia vs India

Preview for AUS vs IND GoodGamer Fantasy Contest:
Australia started the ODI series with a much-expected victory against the visitors but the manner in which they did it was surprising. They posted a mammoth total thanks to centuries by Finch and Smith. Their team looks well balanced to say the least and they’ll be favourites to win the ODI series with a strong performance today.
India’s bowling performance left a lot to desire in the 1st ODI. Moreover, their top order struggled against short balls which dampened their chances of chasing down the total. Hardik Pandya’s batting was a huge plus, but the fact that he isn’t able to bowl is definitely going to hurt India during the entirety of this series.
Injury and Availability News
Australia: Marcus Stoinis (Doubtful)
Probable Playing XI
Australia: Aaron Finch, David Warner, Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey, Cameron Green, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa.
India: Mayank Agarwal, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal.
Top Captaincy Picks for AUS vs IND GoodGamer Fantasy contest
Steve Smith: Steve Smith was criticised by one of the commentators for having a below par ODI strike rate but Smudge didn’t leave no stone unturned in proving his doubters wrong. He obliterated the Indian bowling by scoring a quickfire century.
David Warner: David Warner scored a fifty and dedicated it to his former teammate Phil Hughes during the 1st ODI. Although he was the only one out of the top 3 that didn’t go on to make a century, by law of averages he is more likely to get one in the next match. Great differential captain.
Shikhar Dhawan: Shikhar Dhawan was the only Indian top order batsman who looked at home while facing the short bowlers and hence lasted long for his well-made 74. He had a fruitful IPL season and is India’s best bet in the absence of Rohit Sharma and considering the form Kohli is in.
Jasprit Bumrah: Jasprit Bumrah had a rare off day by his great standards as the Australian batsmen piled on 374 runs. India will need him to be at his best if they want to have any chance of winning the second match on Sunday.
Budget Picks for AUS vs IND GoodGamer Fantasy Contest
Hardik Pandya: Despite not being able to bowl, Hardik Pandya earned plaudits for his great fighting knock in the first match. Looking at the form of both teams, he should get plenty of chances to showcase his batting skills.
Josh Hazlewood: Josh Hazlewood was the destructor-in-chief that formulated the demise of India’s top order. He is priced cheaper than both Cummins and Starc, but looked in far better rhythm.
Mayank Agarwal: Mayank Agarwal had a great IPL season which saw him make the squads of all three formats. Priced at just 8 credits, he is surely going to be bargain opener.
