The Indian cricket team will look to leave their ODI series disappointment behind, when they take on Australia in the first T20I of the three-match series at the Manuka Oval on December 4, Friday.
The Men in Blue endured a tough start to their Australian tour with their bowlers finding little success on the turf of the Sydney Cricket Ground. However, with the Oval providing some hope and an ODI win on Wednesday, Virat Kohli will be optimistic about the T20I series. Watch India vs Australia 1st T20I live.
India come to the T20I series on the back of a supreme 5-0 whitewash of New Zealand away from home earlier this year. The recently-concluded Indian T20 League will also keep the players in the right frame of mind.
