India VS Australia games are always a treat to watch. Both the teams are super competitive on the pitch. These are teams who want to end up on the winning side and hence give it their fullest. With that being said, what will be the key factors to watch for in the upcoming India VS Australia series? The Indian team and Australian team will have a few agendas to verify. What are they? Here’s a look:
1) The Form of Mitchell Starc will be Checked in India VS Australia Games:
Mitchell Starc off-late has been off-color for the Aussies. He is one of their strike bowlers and the team never wants to go in without him. Starc can scare the batters by their mere presence on the field. His performances on the global stage are always elite. Or else he couldn’t win 2 consecutive “Man of the Series” in the two consecutive ODI World Cups. His yorkers are generally very precise. So, the Aussies will be keeping a good check on his performance in the India VS Australia games.
2) Jasprit Bumrah, Harshal Patel, and Mohammad Shami Comeback:
On the other hand, the top bowlers of the Indian contingent are making a comeback. I still recall Mohammad Shami being out of favor before the 2019 ODI World Cup and he becoming India’s strike bowler at the World Cup just within 3 weeks. Shami fought his way through and piled on the performances for the Gujarat Titans.
Harshal Patel and Jasprit Bumrah are also back. It will now be a key factor to observe how India’s bowling shapes in the death overs. Both these bowlers are death overs specialists and they will be keen on showing their skills.
3) KL Rahul’s Form will be Checked in India VS Australia:
A point of concern for the Indian cricket team is that their vice-captain is not in the best of forms. KL Rahul is not his blooming best. Because when KL is on the song, he makes sure that the others look trashy. His class and enigma just overshadow the other performances when he is in form. Rahul’s form is also a point of concern as the selectors have chosen him over a very highly ranked Ishan Kishan. Virat Kohli also performed exceptionally well as an opener. So, the team management will take a call after the India VS Australia series.
