Australia Vs India 2016

There are five ODI and three T 20 matches series in between India and Australia. This series will take place in Australian soil. The series going to start on 12th January 2015. Austarlia who have enjoyed couple of big wins against a dingy West Indies side in a recent Test series in 2015 – 16, are incisive to get going in the one day and T 20 series against the Mahendra Singh Dhoni led Indian side.


Today Darren Lehmann told to reporters at WACA (West Australia cricket Association) that “They are a good one-day side as they made the semis of the World Cup. They are a quality side so from our point of view we have got to start well and play well against them. We haven’t played in Perth for a while, so that is exciting for us and I feel it’s a fast bouncy track, They are playing an aggressive brand of cricket as well, so I don’t really see that changing in the next five games, ”


Australia will be missing the experience of the retired Mitchell Johnson and an injured star player Mitchell Starc but Lehmann believes the youngsters are up for the challenge.

“It will be a good challenge for them. We play top cricket and India play the same way, so it will be an exciting series,” he added next.


Lehmann also said  that the Australia side will not have much more problem by changing gears from the longer format(Test Cricket) to the limited – overs (One Day International and T 20) games.


“The blokes change pretty quickly and we have changed our squad around a fair bit and it is nice to see the guys play a bit of T20 and white ball cricket, nice bit of transition for us, ” he said.


He is backing to Shaun Marsh who was dropped for the West Indies series, Lehmann said that “We think he (Shaun Marsh) is batting really well and he was unlucky to be left out. We said many times he is in very good form and he certainly showed that in his scores in the last few games. We are impressed with that and he has got a chance again to play well for Australia,”.

Mathew Wade who is the Wicket keeper batsman of Australian team said facing India is always a challenge given the large number of expatriates who turn up to support the visitors but he enjoys the atmosphere.
