India will commence their preparation for World T20 from tomorrow as they will play a three-match T20 series against Australia starting from tomorrow at Adelaide Oval. India have won the final match of the Victoria Bitter ODI series after losing the last four matches. India with an explosive batting side played some of the swashbuckling innings. Opener Rohit Sharma scored two hundred and missed one by one run, Virat Kohli scored two hundred and missed another by nine runs.

India in the entire series scored 1566 runs, but their pathetic bowling could not defend the total. And a batting collapse in the fourth ODI pushed India from a victory.

 

For the T20 series Yuvraj Singh, Ashish Nehra, Harbhajan Singh and young Hardik Pandya flew to Australia while Jasprit Bumrah, Gurkirrat Mann Singh replaced injured Mohammad Shami and Ajinkya Rahane. At the same time, Rishi Dhawan replaced injured Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Suresh Raina will also back in the team. 

The team is comprised of young and old blokes. So, before the Asia Cup and old blokes will be closely observed.
With Australia have selected the a strong side both filled with an in-form player of just concluded Big Bash league Indians will once agin be tested.

India in the last T20 series at home lost the Dharamsala T20 even after scoring 200 runs. Rohit Sharma scored a hundred but South Africa’s JP Duminy won the match for the visitor. 

Predicted XI: MS Dhoni (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Ravichandran Ashwin, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Ashish Nehra, Umesh Yadav
