Australia vs India


Recommended Posts

4pts Australia to win at 4/9 with Stan James


Australia have a stable of batsmen at the height of their powers, with Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell and George Bailey in especially good touch. Their openers have done okay too, with both Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh registering half centuries.

The calmness with which they approach all three chases to date makes them a daunting prospect. And the reason is because they have such variety in their line-up, right down to seven and eight, where Matthew Wade and James Faulkner sit, largely unused.

Glenn Maxwell seems to have found the maturity that has evaded him for most of his career to date, while in Steve Smith they have an adaptable, multi-format performer who is able to bat the situation. George Bailey is adept at manipulating the field those a variety of big shots and deft touches, while the two openers are big hitting, but also capable of capitalising on a good start. That top five has it all.

Now take a deep breath and add David Warner to the mix. Mental isn’t it.

But despite all this, India could quite easily be up in the series. The first two games were especially close, with both finishing in the final over. Unfortunately, gone are the days of a 300 total being well over par. It’s still a good score, but on these Aussie decks, it is eminently chasable.

Rohit Sharma has been the stand out player for the visitors, with his back to back tons in the first two games maintaining his reputation as a phenomenal ODI opener. Unfirtunately he has not had the support that is evident in the Aussie line-up. Only Rahane and Kohli have stepped up sufficiently.

As the series heads to Canberra, regardless of who is chasing, it is hard to see the visitors turn this momentum around. Read the full preview here: https://www.punterslounge.com/australia-vs-india-three-tight-games-three-losses-can-india-stop-the-rot--2016011808

4pts Australia to win the 2nd T20I at 8/13 with Paddy Power


Steve Smith hands over the captaincy to Aaron Finch in this format, while David Warner remains vice. All three of those players, plus Shaun Marsh and James Faulkner have got loads of runs lately.

Glenn Maxwell may return for the second T20 after missing the first one due to injury, and the one to miss out is likely to be Shane Watson or Travis Head, two of the players of the tournament in the Big Bash.

So many of this Australia side have been enjoying stellar campaigns in the BBL, that they must go into this in pole position. Players like AJ Tye, Shaun Tait and John Hastings. Tait’s return is an interesting one, and on a bouncy track, he could well intimidate some of these Indian batsmen.

Despite the loss in the first game, the reasons to side with Australia remain in tact and they look strong enough to reverse their mini-slump this time.

4pts Australia to win (again) at 5/6 with BoyleSports

Glenn Maxwell returned for the second T20 after missing the first one due to injury, and the one to miss out was Travis Head, one of the players of the tournament in the Big Bash.


So many of this Australia side have been enjoying great campaigns in the BBL, especially layers like AJ Tye, Scott Boland and John Hastings. The first of those looking like a star of the future.


Despite the loss in the first two games, Australia are still the side to beat in this format, based purely on quality and depth.
