One of the biggest games in the World T20 is about to happen as the tournament hosts and favorites India take on Australia in a game where the winner gets a spot in the semi-final while the losers go home. Both sides have amazing talent and I am sure this is going to be an amazing encounter.
India came into this tournament as red hot favorites not only winning the Asia Cup but also an away series in Australia. This team is filled with talent but they all seemed to fail in their first game against New Zealand and that is why they are not in this do or die situation. Nevertheless, the team still managed to win their last few games and they will feel confident going into this game.
Australia on the other hand will also be feeling good since their path leading into this game has been identical to that of India. There is also a lot of talent in this side but I think that the thing that will be biggest test for them will be in the spin department. First of all, I think that Australians are not the best players on spin at the moment and along with the fact that Ashwin and Jadeja have been red hot will make things very tough for them.
Another thing which will challenge the Australians will be bowling their own spinners. The likes of Yuvraj, Kohli and Rohit Sharma are amazing players of spin and with a part-time spinner in Maxwell and an inexperienced leg spinner in Zampa they could go for some runs.
All in all though I expect this to be a close game and at the end of the day I think India will get through. This team is great at this form of the game and with a lead in MS Dhoni, I think they will have what it takes to get over the line. If we want to bet on this game I think we are getting a good enough price on the Indians so that is probably the best bet we can get here.
