Only T20: India vs Australia Live Streaming - IND vs AUS 2013
India vs Australia Live Streaming of Australia tour of India 2013, Only T20 Match played at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot on 10th October 2013.
Amidst rain threat, India and Australia will kickstart their limited over series with lone T20 international here at Rajkot on Thursday.
Though weather may play spoilsport but both the teams are geared up for a high-voltage encounter.
For India, all eyes will be on comeback man Yuvraj Singh, who is included in the side after his superb performance in domestic cricket. Yuvraj’s presence will strengthen India’s middle order while skipper Dhoni will also have a bowling option.
On the other hand, visitors are aiming to start their India tour on a winning note here in Rajkot.
Australian skipper George Bailey feels that his young side is capable to turn the table before formidable Indian side in the lone T20 match today.
"I am not sure if it has been missing for the entire two years. What we have lost is a lot of experience. We are trying to rebuild that. Guys are getting used to being in this side, being used to the scrutiny and pressure of international cricket. And to the different roles within the Australian side that they are playing," Bailey told reporters ahead of their lone T20 clash against India.
"The fighting spirit is still there it is just a matter of getting it out there consistently. That is what you want from your side to play really good cricket consistently," he said.
Fully aware that the team from Down Under will have to bring out their best to cope with spin-friendly conditions on the tour, Bailey said they are always evolving to combat the sub-continental art.
Advantage is with Indian side as most of the young players have played the recently concluded Champions League T20. Skipper MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, R Ashwin, Ravidnra Jadeja, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Djawan had few good games in the CLT20.
However, every new game is a different ball game and the team, who holds the nerves in pressure situation, will become victorious.
For Australia, Shane Watson’s experience of playing for Rajasthan Royals in India will be crucial.
Dew factor to play crucial role
Despite the BCCI advancing the start of the ODI matches by an hour, Dhoni said dew would be a key factor and a lot would depend on it, especially the use of spinners.
"We will have to see exactly how much it turns, whether dew will be a factor because if dew becomes a factor then the spinners may not get the same amount of turn that they would have got at some other time of the year," Dhoni explained.
