India vs Australia Tour Prediction

Contents

India return to international cricket and fly down to Australia for a blockbuster tour. They play all three formats and it will be a riveting contest. Last time they toured Australia in 2018-19, they drew the T20I series 1-1, recorded a historic Test series win 2-1 and an ODI series win 2-1.

However, it is going to be a stiffer challenge this time around. Steve Smith and David Warner have returned and the Australian batting lineup wears a different look altogether. Since losing to India at home, Australia haven’t lost a Test series so far. In fact, they are on a five-match winning streak. However, they haven’t played Test cricket since January earlier this year. Meanwhile, India lost to New Zealand 0-2 before the pandemic took full toll. India had been excellent and won seven games in a row before the Kiwis halted their continuous rise.

Match Analytics and Odds

India have been very consistent in the shorter formats. On the other hand, Australia have already played ODIs and T20Is in the post-COVID era as they toured England. They lost the T20I series but went on to win the ODI series in remarkable fashion. However, overall, Australia have struggled in the shorter formats and have had a pretty indifferent run in 2020.

Thus, it’s a fascinating and box-office tour that is about to happen. Virat Kohli and his men will eager to replicate the success they had in 2018-19 while Australia will want to regain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and show some improvement in the white-ball formats.

Tour Predictions

It is expected to be a fascinating series. India have the pace attack to rattle the Aussies but the hosts have been dominant. It promises to be a tough and hard-fought Test series. The hosts Australia are going to be favourites for the Test series. When it comes to the ODIs and T20Is, India have had the wood over the Aussies in the recent past and will be favourites in the white-ball formats.

Key Stats

  • The tour of 2018-19 was the first time ever that India won a Test series on Australian soil when they won the four-match series 2-1.
  • Nathan Lyon has picked up 85 wickets against India, which is the third-highest in the history of Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
  • Steve Smith loves batting against India and has a record of 1429 runs at an average of 84.05, including seven hundreds.
  • Virat Kohli (1604) and Cheteshwar Pujara (1622) have been prolific run-getters against Australia and have seven and five hundreds against them respectively.

Summary

Speaking of the head-to-head record, it is heavily stacked in favour of the Aussies. Be it Tests or ODIs, Australia have overwhelming results against India. However, things have changed in the recent past and India’s record has improved. On the other hand, it is India who have been on top of the rivalry in T20I cricket.
