IND vs AUS Today Match Prediction, WT20 Warm-up, 20th October 2021

KhelTalk is the only destination that brings you the finest today’s match prediction that you can trust. We are here for IND vs. AUS Today Match Prediction, WT20 Warm-up, Online Cricket Betting Tips, which will provide every user with a clear picture of which team and in what aspect they can place their bets.


India is now up against Australia after a crushing victory in the first warm-up match against England. Although they are just Warm-up matches but are really crucial for world preparations and India will again look to put on a strong performance before the real showdown on the 24th. Rohit Sharma was rested for the first match and is likely to for this match and other players like Shardul Thakur are likely to also feature.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar struggled with the ball in the first match and conceded more than 50 runs which could be an alarming sign for the Indian team but this match will again provide an opportunity to re-find his old rhythm and put on a strong performance for a spot in the playing XI. Some batters like Hardik didn’t get enough chances in the first match so it is highly likely that India might look to give them more balls to get in their groove.

Top Batsmen 

  • Virat Kohli- 2272 runs with 52.65 average
  • KL Rahul- 1557 runs with 39.92 average 
  • Rohit Sharma- 2864 runs with 32.18 average 

Top Bowlers

  • Jasprit Bumrah- 59 wickets at 20.25 average  
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar- 50 wickets at 25.1 average 
  • Ravindra Jadeja- 39 wickets at 29.54 average 


Just like India, Australia also kicked off their campaign with a win against their Trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand. Australia would be happy with their efforts in the bowling department as they restricted New Zealand to just 158 after conceding 90 runs in the first 10 overs only. Adam Zampa and Mitchell Starc looked in great rhythm which is a great sign as almost all their players last played in August.

Australia was without some star players like Glenn Maxwell, Pat Cummins for the first match, now will look to get them some action. Their batting department is the biggest area of concern and at first also, they struggled against spinners in middle overs. Mitchell Marsh is likely to bat at number 3 which might lead to exclusion of Steve Smith from playing XI if they go with Maxwell at 4.

Top Batsmen

  • Aaron Finch- 2473 runs with 37.47 average 
  • David Warner- 2265 runs with 31.46 average 
  • Glenn Maxwell- 2018 runs with 25.23 average 

Top Bowlers 

  • Mitchell Starc- 34 wickets at 20.38 average 
  • Pat Cummins- 37 wickets at 20.62 average 
  • Adam Zampa- 52 wickets at 23.42 average

IND vs AUS– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

India  is expected to win the match against Australia 

KhelTalk experts feel that India will win against Australia in the WT20 Warm-up match. India is arguably the strongest team of the tournament and in the first match, they easily crushed England. They are full of match winners and their main man Rohit Sharma is likely to return for this fixture. Although it is only a Warm-up game, India will look to go with full intensity and get some match practice under their belt. On the other hand Australia’s batting order is still the biggest question and the form of David Warner can be the biggest headache if they don’t find his rhythm. Their bowling department looks set and Pat Cummins is also likely to feature in this match. We expect India to beat Australia in this match.

Top Batsman from India – Virat Kohli 

Virat Kohli looked scratchy in the first match and this match is ideal for him to spend some time in the middle. In the IPL also, he had some starts but couldn’t convert them into a big score. Australia is his favorite opponent and his presence in the middle-order gives India much-needed stability and composure. Kohli will look to go into the match against Pakistan with some runs under his belt and this match is tailor-made for him. Virat Kohli is one of the best players in White-ball cricket and is our pick for best batsman from India.

Top Batsman from Australia – David Warner 

David Warner has been surrounded by a lot of attention at the moment because of his shocking exclusion and poor form. He again failed in the first match and got caught behind for a golden duck. Warner is a world-class player and no one could doubt his ability. He needs to spend some time in the middle and Warm-up matches are ideal to get back into the groove. David Warner’s form is crucial for Australia if they want to clinch their maiden title. Warner is a big name in T20 cricket and can give you good returns from this match. He is our pick for best batsman from Australia.

Top Bowler from India – Ravindra Jadeja 

Ravindra Jadeja is going to play a key role in the middle overs for India. The left-arm slow bowler had an incredible IPL and was instrumental for Chennai in the middle overs. Although, he didn’t get many wickets but always picked crucial wickets and gave the team a better grip in the match. He missed the first match but is likely to return for this match and could have an instant impact. Dubai pitches are likely to be slow and Jadeja will be a lethal option on these tracks. He is our pick for best bowler from India.

Top Bowler from Australia– Adam Zampa 

Adam Zampa was really impressive in the first match and helped Australia to make a comeback in the middle overs. He has been brilliant for Australia over the years and this World t20 is a big opportunity to become a hero for the team. Zampa is quicker in the air and his googlies are very lethal at times because of the grip which he finds from slow wickets. He was brilliant in Australia’s recent tours and can again make a big impact in this match. Zampa can give you good returns from this match and is our pick for best bowler from Australia.
