IND vs AUS: Australia playing XI vs India, 5th T20I, 2023 – Predicted
Australia will face India in the fifth and final T20I match in Bangalore on Sunday.
Australia had a good chance at the start of the series when India rested all of the senior players. Though Australia also had some big names not playing, there were a few regular faces. But after the first four games, the series has been sealed by India 3-1, with the final game still left.
Australia will be looking to end that match on a better note. Both teams will lock horns on Sunday in the fifth and final T20I at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Australia will try to come hard and try to win. Here, we will talk about the predicted playing XI for Australia on Sunday.
IND vs AUS: Australia’s Predicted playing XI vs India
1. Josh Philippe :
Josh Philippe missed a chance to be a hero in the fourth game and got out cheaply. But he can be a dangerous batter at the top. The right-hander is an attacking batter who likes to take on the bowling from the set. With nothing much to lose, he will be looking to showcase his skill-set with a good innings on Sunday.
2. Travis Head :
Travis Head will be the biggest wicket for India. If he stays for ten overs, Australia will be in a comfortable position, for sure. The left-hander had two good starts in the last two matches, but he hasn’t converted them into big ones. India would like him to stay quiet because he can surely do big damage.
3. Ben McDermott :
Ben McDermott looked a bit rusty in the last game. He wasn’t looking good against the spinners, so he got out to Axar Patel. But Mcdermott is a better player than that, and he will have that in mind. The selection into the World Cup squad will depend on how the players are performing, and he will do well with the bat.
4. Aaron Hardie :
The all-rounder Aaron Hardie looks like a pretty good prospect for Australia. He can open the batting and bowling, which is a pretty special talent. Hardie bowled well for his spell of 1/20 in the fourth T20I, but he will look to make a contribution with the bat as well. If he gets going, he can be an exciting batter to watch.
5. Tim David :
Tim David will be a very disappointing batter in this series for Australia. He hasn’t performed to his full potential. The big right-hander is known for hitting big sixes, but he has yet to play an impactful innings. But with the series already gone, he can now play more freely and show his real strength, which can be pretty dangerous for India.
6. Matthew Short :
Matthew Short is another good all-rounder who can contribute in both departments. He can be a player to watch out for. Short didn’t score as much as he would have liked, but he can take on the bowling pretty well. He will be keen to do well for his team to help them win.
7. Matthew Wade (c & wk) :
Matthew Wade will be very disappointed with the way the series has gone. The stand-in skipper had a great chance to lead Australia to a series win, but that couldn’t happen. However, he can still end on a winning note and take his team to a win. Wade is a proven candidate and can become a dangerous batter in final overs.
8. Ben Dwarshuis :
Ben Dwarshuis made his debut in the last game and was okay with his performance. He took three crucial wickets in the game. It was pretty difficult to score off at one time. Dwarshuis will be looking to make an impact in the final game because there are a lot of T20Is coming up, and this performance will help him to be with the team.
9. Chris Green :
Chris Green had a pretty decent debut. After going for runs in his first two overs, he came back pretty well and ended up with bowling figures of 0/36. He is a pretty good spinner who bowls stump to stump and deceives the batter with his pace variations. Green will hope that he can take his first international wicket in the coming game and help his team dominate.
10. Jason Behrendorff :
Despite conceding three boundaries in his first over, Jason Behrendorff bowled well in the game. He took 2/32 and was the pick of the bowlers for Australia. He will be a threat to India’s top order, and if he can remove a few early wickets, that can put Australia on top. Behrendorff is the most economical bowler in this high-scoring series.
11. Tanveer Sangha :
Tanveer Sangha is improving with every game. He took 2/30 in the last game and bowled with some flair. The leg-spinner will be looking to end the series with some wickets to help his team win. Sangha can be a dangerous bowler, and he will get some grip in Bengaluru. But it will be a challenging surface to bowl on.
