|Match||Australia vs India, 1st T20I|
|Match Days||21 November 2018 – day/night match (20-over match)|
|Venue||The Gabba, Brisbane|
|Series||India tour of Australia 2018/19|

For this T20 series, the Indian team squad has already been announced. Here are the players that will be traveling to Australia for this action-packed and thrilling series: –
Virat Kohli, Umesh Yadav, Washington Sundar, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, Manish Pandey, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Dinesh Karthik, Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed and Rohit Sharma.
The squad of the hosts is yet to be announced. Thus, there is suspense for cricket fans whether they will be able to see their favourite Australian players in this series or not. If we look at the current form of both the teams, team India is coming in this series after a battle with West Indies while team Australia had been playing with team Pakistan in the recent past. Both the teams have been playing the game recently. Thus, being out of form should not be a concern bothering them.
Here are some of the key tips for this match: –
Since Virat Kohli had been rested in the previous T20 series that India was playing, his form in this match is not very sure. Thus, we do not consider him in our list of key players for this match.
Do watch out for Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul as they are likely to perform well in the game.
It would be interesting to watch the Indian spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal showing their skills in the game.
Though team Australia has home ground advantage, the past records show the tides in favour of team India. When these two teams have faced each other in the past for T20 matches, team India has won most of the matches. Thus, the visitors are likely to give similar kind of winning performance in this game.
