India won’t be able to compete in the T20 World Cup without Jasprit Bumrah. Mohammad Shami, another seasoned fast bowler, will take his position. The seasoned speedster has already missed a couple home games while he recovered from the covid. The Indian team will need to win this exhibition game in order to evaluate Mohammad Shami’s condition ahead of the crucial encounter against Pakistan on October 23. In a recent home series, Australia was behind the English cricket team 0-2 at the time. Prior to the last game, they once again found themselves in a bind.

They could want a victory against India in order to boost their self-confidence ahead of the World Cup. Throughout the Asia Cup and the exhibition match against Western Australia, Rushabh Pant gave off the impression that he was utterly out of it. He did well at the Gabba, however, and he will be eager to contribute significantly for his side once again. Both of these clubs have a wonderful chance to evaluate their squad combinations before to the start of the Super 12 round due to the formidable opponent and excellent surface.



The Australian team recently suffered several heartbreaking defeats. The reigning T20I world champions suffered losses in both their away series against the Indian team and their subsequent matchup with the English team. However, it was somewhat anticipated. They were a little rusty as a team since they had not faced formidable competition since winning the world cup in 2021. The Australian team’s rising anxiety also centers on Glen Maxwell’s recent batting performance. He began the innings for Australia in the most recent T20I encounter against England.

Hosts As they were attempting to reach a respectable goal of 113 runs from 13 overs, Australia had to get off to a strong start. This was the justification for Glen Maxwell’s promotion. But the Australians were immediately reduced to 17 for 3 after losing Marsh, Finch, and Maxwell in the span of three overs. Glen Maxwell will have yet another chance to play in the middle order and engage in his customary strategy of letting his strokes fly in search of a rhythm during this game against India. Mitchell Marsh and Stoinis are two more Australian cricketers who are presently doing well. The Australian middle order depends on these two all-rounders.

Tim David and Matthew Wade will likely continue to lead Australia in finishing positions. As Australia plays the top-ranked T20I side in the world, their abilities will probably be put to the test. Hazelwood and Pat Cummins will be the leaders of the Australian fast bowling assault. For Australia, the batting all-rounders Maxwell and Stoinis will be key with the ball as well. Even though Marsh hasn’t bowled much lately, captain Finch can count on him when necessary since he can make an impact. The bowling attack is quite diverse, and the batting lineup has a lot of depth.


Rohit Sharma, India’s top opening batsman, did not play in the most recent game against Western Australia. He will likely don the protective gear to start India’s inning at The Gabba alongside K L Rahul. K L Rahul’s batting technique enables him to switch up his approach at the conclusion of an innings, despite the fact that he hit 74 runs in 55 balls in the most recent game. India’s playing style might cause problems, particularly in the more important games. The value of Rohit Sharma’s wicket is lower than that of KL Rahul or Virat Kohli. In order to have a positive effect on the Indian innings, the hitman plays his natural style of cricket and attempts to attack the bowlers from the get-go.

Virat Kohli is in fantastic shape right now and has been hitting runs at a respectable strike rate. This is really advantageous for the Indian squad. This, together with Suryakumar Yadav’s emergence as India’s new run machine, bodes well for that country. The second-best batsman in the world in Twenty20 international cricket is an Indian middle-order right-handed batsman. The only cricketer from India to be ranked in the top 10 in the world in T20Is is also him. In November 2021, Mohammad Shami faced Namibia in his last Twenty20 international match. Jasprit Bumrah will be replaced by him in the Indian lineup.

Mohammad Siraj, a reserve player, will be traveling to Australia with the Indian cricket squad for the world cup. Mohammad Shami hasn’t recently participated in a T20I cricket match. The team management will have a great chance to evaluate the decision to choose Shami over Siraj and Chahar during this warm-up game. In this ICC Men’s T20I Cup, Bhuvneshwar Kumar continues to be India’s top bowling danger. He has taken 35 wickets from 27 games, a respectable average of 18, making him India’s leading wicket-taker over the last year.


Even though the team that batted second has won only two of the four T20 international matches played at The Gabba, the situation is a little bit different for the local circuit. Out of the 50 games played on the ground, teams batting second have won 26, games. These days, the batting lineups of both India and Australia are loaded with big-hitting finishers. You may anticipate that the captain who wins the toss would favor pursuing a target at the location since the pitch will hold up well during the game.


The fast bowlers have excellent carry and bounce on this wicket. The hitters, however, benefit from this genuine bounce as well since it enables them to play their strokes freely and confidently. However, Brisbane is predicted to see rain throughout the game, and the temperature might reach about 23 degrees Celsius. This match between two of the biggest teams in cricket today will take place at Brisbane’s Gabba stadium. This stadium’s average first inning score is 165 runs. But in 23 of the 50 BBL games played at The Gabba, teams have been successful in chasing down a score of more than 170 runs.


These two teams are among the top contenders for the T20I world cup championship. India is still a formidable power, despite the fact that some commentators have said they are not the favourites to win the championship. They are ranked number one in the world for a reason and will be a serious threat throughout the competition. India will begin as the favourites to win this exhibition game given the two teams’ current standings. However, there isn’t much at stake since Australia is playing at home and can easily reverse the situation and defeat India. We’ll wager on the home team to win this match.
