Australia's tour of India 2023

IND vs AUS, 4th T20I


The first three T20Is have witnessed a deluge of runs, transforming bowlers into mere bowling machines as batsmen unleashed a barrage of boundaries—123 fours and 65 sixes have already punctuated the series. As teams gear up for the fourth T20I clash in Raipur, the anticipation looms for a continuation of the high-scoring spectacle.

India finds solace in the departure of Glenn Maxwell, whose sensational performance in Guwahati injected life into the series. The onus now falls on Australia's weary squad, bolstered by an eclectic group of reinforcements, to square the series. With an eye on the 2024 T20 World Cup, experimentation might be in the offing.

For India's bowlers, the upcoming encounter offers a chance at redemption after the onslaught by Maxwell. Ravi Bishnoi and Axar Patel have impressed with strong opening spells, but the dew has hampered their effectiveness in the latter stages. The seamers, notably Arshdeep Singh and Prasidh Krishna, have struggled to find their lengths, conceding runs aplenty. The inclusion of Deepak Chahar, a recent addition, and the return of Mukesh Kumar from his wedding provide potential solutions to shore up India's bowling in the powerplay and death overs. The team may also contemplate fielding a dedicated sixth bowler, especially after stand-in captain Suryakumar Yadav grappled with only five options in the previous outing.

As the cricketing spectacle unfolds in Raipur, both teams are poised for a battle that extends beyond the immediate series, with an eye on shaping their strategies for the looming 2024 T20 World Cup.

Match Prediction

In this series, the Indian team has showcased impressive batting skills, with Ruturaj Gaikwad, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Rinku Singh excelling and scoring runs at a brisk pace. However, the bowling department has been a cause for concern. In the recent match against Guwahati, the Aussie batters dismantled Prasidh Krishna and the rest of the bowling unit, highlighting areas that need improvement. As the upcoming match in Raipur approaches, a series victory is within reach for Suryakumar Yadav and his team. Despite Australia's rejuvenation following their notable win in Guwahati, the absence of key players and favorable conditions make us favour India to secure the series in Raipur
