Australia vs India Twenty20: Squad of Australia team

Australia vs India twenty20 match has become one of the most important match of all ages people. Fans of both teams are eagerly waiting to see an exciting and competitive match between host Australia and tourist India team. Test series has just finished with the result of 2-1 where host team won the Test trophy winning the first two matches. India team again stopped the record of Australia’s 17 consecutive Test win. Now, it is the only one Twenty20 match before the triangular ODI series between India, Sri Lanka and Australia.

India team is still unbeaten against Australia in Twenty20 format game. Both India and Australia faced each other two times in Twenty20 game where India team got win in all matches. So, I hope Australian fans should want to see their favorite team as a winner against tourist India team. It is high time for host team to take revenge for their defeat in Twenty20 world cup in South Africa. Indian team should try to keep their consistency against Australia in Twenty20 format.

Some bad news for Indian team is that two key players Yuvraj Singh and RP Singh will not be able to play in Twenty20 match. Yuvraj Singh, India’s ODI specialist batsman, is suffering from knee injury. So, he will not be able to play Friday’s Twenty20 match. He was injured playing football in training session. On the other hand, RP Singh is suffering a lot because of his hamstring injury.

It is the most important match for Australia team. Australia should try their best to get win. That is why they will select their best players in the main squad.

It is the last Twenty20 match for Australian dominating wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist. So, Australia team should try to show their best because of their 36 year old star player.

Australian batsman David Hussey, brother of famous cricketer Micheal Hussey, has been named in the squad for the one off Twenty20 game against India. Micheal Clarke has been named the vice-captain. Ricky Ponting will lead the team.

There are some new faces in twenty20 squad of Australia team. They are Adam Voges, Ashley Noffke and David Hussey.

I am giving the squad of Australia team in Twenty20 in below as you can see the players name at a glance:

Australian squad: Michael Clarke, Adam Gilchrist (wk), Ricky Ponting (capt.), Brad Hodge, Andrew Symonds, Michael Hussey, David Hussey, Adam Voges, James Hopes, Brett Lee, Ashley Noffke, Nathan Bracken, Ben Hilfenhaus.
