Virat Kohli and company would look to carry forward the winning momentum into the three-match T20 International series, when Team India locks horns with Australia cricket team in the first T20 match today at Manuka Oval, Canberra.

Australia, on the other hand, are on a high after winning the ODI series. Star batsman David Warner, however, is out due to injury. Now it remains to be seen whether Marnus Labushen descends with Captain Aaron Finch or anyone else. Marcus Stoinis can also open the innings, but he was also hurt in the one-day and his playing right now is questionable. In bowling, Mitchell Starc may return after being out of the third ODI, while Pat Cummins has been rested due to workload management.

Captain Kohli appeared in one-day form and would like to continue. Shreyas Iyer could not turn a good start into big innings, but now would like to score big. The victory in the third one-day has served as a tonic for the Indian team or else a ‘clean sweep’ in the one-day series would have reduced the morale of the team.

In batting, Lokesh Rahul can now open the innings with Shikhar Dhawan after landing at number five in ODIs. He also started the innings against New Zealand. He is expected to retain the IPL form in which he scored the most runs this season.
