Team India must be in form with their recent limited-overs exploits when they defeated West Indies at home. However, playing Australia in Australia isn’t going to be easy for Kohli & Co., even if they are ranked No.2 in ICC T20I rankings.
The contests between India and Australia have always been interesting one as no one can predict a clear winner out of the two.The Indian team would be looking to take inspiration from their previous T20I series win against Australia where they defeated the hosts 3-0.

The Indian Team will miss the likes of Dhoni, but this Kohli-led side is capable of winning against the toughest of opponents if they play to the best of their potential.
Last time when Team India toured Australia for a limited-overs series in 2016,India whitewashed the Aussies and Men in Blue would be eager to repeat the similar performances.
