IND vs AUS: Team India is set to host Australia for a 3-match T20I series at home, starting on September 20th (Tuesday) at Mohali. Both teams would eye to cement their combinations and tie up loose ends with the T20 World Cup 2022 in sight. 

While Australia are missing some of the key players due to injury or rest, ace pacer Jasprit Bumrah and T20 specialist bowler Harshal Patel are making their way back in after missing out on Asia Cup 2022 due to injury. However, the batters are expected to dominate this series since the Indian pitches are more batter friendly than assisting the bowlers.
