IND vs AUS Dream11 Team News:
- This is the first time in years that India will miss the services of Rohit Sharma in T20Is. In his absence, KL Rahul is likely to open with Shikhar Dhawan. Rahul and Dhawan had 1st and 2nd most runs in the recently concluded IPL.
- T Natarajan who enjoyed a good debut in the 3rd ODI where he picked up two wickets, is likely to play here as well.
- Washington Sundar, who was Virat Kohli’s go-to bowler in the IPL is likely to open the bowling here.
- In the absence of David Warner, D’Arcy Short is likely to open the innings for the team. Australia might consider opening with Marcus Stoinis who was the leading run-scorer in the last edition of Big Bash League.
- In the last head-to-head fixture, Glenn Maxwell scored a brilliant hundred. He ended up with 113* from 55 deliveries.
- Australia could hand out debut caps to Cameron Green and Daniel Sams in this series.
