India vs Australia Fifth T20I

In a series where 31 players were tested out, India managed to edge out Australia 3-1 winning the series already. There’s little on the line, unless one considers preparation for the global tournament next year in the West Indies. I am backing India to bring out the big hits once again and rule the six count.

  • India have scored the most 6s in 7 of their last 8 home matches against Australia (T20Is)
  • Australia have conceded the most 6s in 8 of their last 9 matches against India (T20Is)
  • Australia have conceded the most 6s in 8 of their last 9 matches played in Asia (T20Is)
  • Travis Head has 2 centuries in his last 5 innings against India (Internationals)

Head to Head


India played Australia in 30 T20Is so far, winning 18 and losing 11. The remaining match ended without any result.

In this series so far, India won the first two matches by two wickets and 44 runs. Australia won the third match by five wickets to bounce back, but India won the fourth by 20 runs to close out the series.

India Form


In Suryakumar Yadav’s first series as India captain, he managed to lead them admirably winning key contests. With dew playing a major role and SKY being given T20 captaincy for South Africa tour, there are many things for him to settle down.

One area India won’t be worried about is batting, where Ruturaj Gaikwad (213 runs, SR 166.40) has teed off admirably at the top. The biggest positive though, is Rinku Singh (SR 190.38) who has impressed with his composure.

Bowlers have struggled with the dewy conditions, although Ravi Bishnoi (seven wickets, ER 8.43) has impressed.

India Team News


India could continue with the same team that played the fourth T20I unless they want to test the all-round skills of Shivam Dube in place of a batter.

Australia Form


Australia looked weary and their second-rung unit failed to live up to any expectations they may have had before the series. The lone win they had in the series was due to Glenn Maxwell’s onslaught than anything.

The visitors will look to close out the series with a win and much will depend on their batters. Travis Head has threatened to impress, but has fallen short of a big score in the series.

Bowling has been a mixed bag too with only Jason Behrendorff (four wickets, ER 5.75) proving to be formidable.

Australia Team News


Australia only have Nathan Ellis and Kane Richardson on the bench, and should they change it could be Chris Green sitting out for Ellis.

Verdict

Although India looked the superior unit in the series, there’s no denying the fact that the dew conditions decided the outcomes. Bengaluru is once again going to be a high-scoring venue and that should put the big hitters in focus once again. I am putting my money on India bringing the long shots and wining the battle for most 6s.
