India vs Australia, Ind vs Aus 1st T20 Live Cricket Score Streaming Online: On paper, the two-match T20I series bears little significance as compared to the five-match ODI series which is to follow. But with the World Cup on the horizon and squad selection on both sides’ mind, it is a chance for both teams to fine tune their already selected players and for those on the periphery to make themselves count.

India captain Virat Kohli stated as such by admitting that they would have been better served if the T20Is were ODIs instead. But he also added that the T20s will help them polish their death bowling and batting skills. Worth pointing out that India players will head to the 20-over IPL following the series.

Australia’s players, however, come into it having played their T20 league (BBL) and will hope to use the upcoming series to gel better. Their squads for the T20Is and ODIs are the same, and should allow them to get into the right rhythm.

India and Australia’s T20I will not be the only live action on IndianExpress.com, you can follow Afghanistan vs Ireland from Dehrardun.
