KFC T20 International Australia vs India is going to start on 1 February at Stadium Australia, Sydney. The series concludes on Friday night in Melbourne before the Commonwealth Bank One Day series kicks off with Australia, India and Sri Lanka taking part.
Australia have made a number of surprising decisions for their KFC T20 International squad, the most surprising is that of George Bailey being named captain.
India have had a test series they will want to forget but the limited over format means a fresh start for them. They have a new look side heading into the T20 internationals and the Commonwealth Bank Series and they’ll want to get off to a flyer in Sydney. Sachin Tendulkar will be rested for the KFC T20 International matches and Virat Kohli will want to continue where he left off in Adelaide. A few new faces have been brought in with Suresh Raina, Praveen Kumar and Ravindra Jadeja likely to get a start.
This should be a different test for the Aussies, they dominated the Australia vs India test series but T20′s are a whole new ball game. Despite this, they should still have enough to defeat an Indian side that is well down on confidence.
