After losing the first T20I by six wickets, India will face Australia in a must-win second match of the series on Friday, 23rd September in Nagpur. A defeat in the series would see Australia take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the 3-match series.
The Men in Blue recently crashed out of the Asia Cup 2022 after losing two back-to-back matches in the Super 4 round of the tournament. Australia, on the other hand, have travelled without injured Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Marsh, and Marcus Stoinis. David Warner has also been rested for the series. Ahead of the series, the side last played a T20I match in June this year. The 3-match series between India and Australia will give them the perfect dress rehearsal ahead of the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia next month. The visitors have won three out of their last five T20I matches against India. Overall, the two teams have played 24 matches against each other. India are leading the head-to-head tally 13-10. As we gear up for the second T20I, I have brought to you the best three betting tips from the IND vs AUS 2nd T20I head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team betting tip from the IND vs AUS head-to-head contest. Take a look!
The Aaron-Finch led side smashed as many as nine sixes in the first T20I against India on Tuesday. Cameron Green shone on his opening debut smashing as many as four sixes. Finch, Tim David and Steve Smith hit one six each, while Matthew Wade sent two balls sailing over the boundary ropes. Even in the absence of David Warner, Michell Marsh and Marcus stoinis Australia were at their brutal best. Though it was for the first time in their last five T20I outings that Australia hit more than five sixes in an innings, we can expect more fireworks from the world champions. Ahead of the first T20I, Australia had hit 5, 2, 4, and 2 sixes in their last four T20Is. On the other hand, India have conceded 3, 7, 5, and 5 sixes in the four T20Is prior to the match against Australia on Tuesday. A jaded Afghanistan team, who were playing matches on consecutive days in the UAE heat, hit three, Sri Lanka seven, and Pakistan five in the Super 4 stage. Hong Kong also managed as many as five sixes in India's last group stage match. India's death bowling problem has become an issue now and if Jasprit Bumrah is rested for one more match, Australia can look to exploit the weakness. While Bhuvneshwar has three expensive penultimate overs in last 4 matches. Harshal goes at over 11 runs per over in the death overs. Also, even if Bumrah is included in the eleven, he will be playing his first match after July and might take time to shrug off the rust. After the addition of David, Australia have four genuine white-ball strikers in him, Finch, Maxwell and Wade. All the batters also have enough experience in playing in India conditions and against the India bowlers. Chances of Australia hitting over 5.5 sixes against India are high. If you feel the same, proceed to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.8 for India to hit over 5.5 sixes from the IND vs AUS head-to-head encounter.
Aaron Finch and Suryakumar Yadav are my top two player betting tips for the IND vs AUS 2nd T20I. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
Aaron Finch was in the zone on Tuesday, smashing three boundaries and a six en route to his 22 off 13 balls. Before he could inflict more damage, Rohit Sharma introduced spin as Axar Patel castled him on the third delivery of the fourth over. Finch's poor form recently forced him to bid adieu to ODI cricket. In the 3-match ODI series against New Zealand in September, Finch registered scores of 5, 0 and 5. In the preceding 3-match ODI series against Zimbabwe in August, he scored 15, 1 and 5 runs in the first, second and third match respectively. The 35-year-old captain did not play any form of cricket between June 25 and August 27 and his return to white-ball cricket until the first T20I against India was nothing less than devastating. The right-hand batter has scores of 22, 29, 24 and 61* in his last four innings in the T20I format, however, the last three of them came back in June. A lot has happened since then. His last six T20I outings against India have seen him score 22, 0, 35, 8, 0, 28 and 0. In total, Finch has played 16 T20I matches against India and scored 462 runs at an average of 28.87. In India, he has played eight matches and scored 227 runs at an average of 28.37. In 2022, the Victoria-born star played ten T20I matches and scored 269 runs at an average of 29.88. Also, in IPL 2022, Finch played five matches for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and scored 86 runs at an average of 17.20. There can be early use of spin again against Finch on Friday. Further, the return of Bumrah can come across as a threat for the Australia captain who is trying to claw his way back to form. After failing to defend 209 and landing up in a must-win situation, India are expected to come with better planning on Friday. Scoring over 20.5 runs will again not be easy for Finch. If you feel the same, proceed to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.832 for Aaron Finch to score under 20.5 runs from the IND vs AUS head-to-head encounter.
India batter Suryakumar Yadav scored 46 runs off 25 balls in the first T20I. In the Asia Cup 2022, he was India's second-highest run-scorer. He scored 34.75 runs at an average of 34.75 and a strike rate of 163.52. His strike rate was best among the top ten run-scorers in the tournament. Since the start of 2022, he is the leading run-scorer for India in the shortest format of the game. He has scored 613 runs at an average of 38.31 and a staggering strike rate of 182.44. His strike rate is better than 28 out of 29 players who have played for India during the period. Only Ravi Bishnoi who has scored 10 runs in two innings has a better strike rate than him. The 32-year-old had never played a T20I match against Australia before Tuesday. In India, Suryakumar has scored 305 runs at an average of 38.12 in nine innings. The right-hand batter has scores of 46, 6, 34, 13 and 68* in his last five T20I innings. On Wednesday, the Mumbai Indians (MI) star went past Babar Azam to occupy the third spot in the ICC T20I rankings for batters. Considering Suryakumar's form, it is very likely that he would score at least over 19.5 runs in the second T20I. If you feel the same, proceed to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.832 for Suryakumar Yadav to score over 19.5 runs from the IND vs AUS head-to-head encounter.
