India vs Australia Live Score Updates, 1st T20: Surya eyes 1st win on captaincy debut

India vs Australia Live Score Updates, 1st T20: Ind vs Aus, a relatively fresh Indian side led by skipper Suryakumar Yadav will take on Australia at the ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Vizag from 7 pm onwards today. 

Indian squad for the Australia T20 series is mostly made up of relative newbies in international cricket and many of these players were also part of the Asian Games gold medal-winning team. Interestingly, the spinner Axar Patel who had to be ruled out of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 owing to an injury, has returned while wicketkeeper batter Sanju Samson is amongst the notable omissions.

In stark contrast, Aussies have decided to stick with much of the same team that lifted the ICC World Cup trophy in Ahmedabad just a few days ago while giving rest to a few key players like Pat Cummins and David Warner. 

In the spotlight will be left-handed batter Travis Head who was also the Man of the Match for the final and had led the Aussies to the 6th World Cup title with his century.

India vs Australia: Head to head records

India and Australia have played 26 T20s so far. India have won 15 of those and Australia 10. There was one match that did not produce any results. In the last 5 T20 matches between these teams, India have won 3 and Australia 2.

These two teams clashed on September 25, 2022, in Hyderabad, when India beat Australia by 6 wickets, thanks to Suryakumar’s 69 off 36 balls.
