India vs Australia Pitch Report
The pitch at ICC Academy – Dubai is supporting batsmen a lot so far and another day that will be good for the batsmen is expected in this match between IND vs AUS.
India Team Preview
India batted second in the first warm-up game against England and their bowlers let England make a good total of 188 runs. But India managed to win by 7 wickets thanks to the 24 balls 51 by KL Rahul and another opener Ishan Kishan who was simply brilliant in his knock of 70 runs. Indian openers made the chase of 188 runs very easy and will be the top batsmen to watch out for in the match against Australia also. Bowlers of India were a little expensive but they need to work on their line and length to get back on track in the match against Australia. But the batting performance of India is a good sign for the team.
Australia Team Preview
Although Australia too won their first warm-up game against New Zealand they had to work very hard to get that win as they achieve the target of 158 runs with just 1 wicket remaining. The form of Australian star batsmen i.e David Warner and Aaron Finch is a bit of concern for the team. For the Australian team to have success in this warm game against India, these two batsmen have to score a lot of runs. Mitchell Marsh and Steve Smith did some scoring for the team in the first warm-up game and need to be consistent to put a good total on the board.
Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa were on track with their bowling as they took 3 and 2 wickets respectively. Starc was also quite good with his bowling and these three will be bowlers from the Australian team who are going to cause big problems for the Indian batsmen.

India vs Australia Winner Prediction
India has a long batting lineup with big hitters of the Cricket ball especially when it comes to T20 Cricket. Although bowlers were not up to the mark in the first warm-up match they can surprise the opposition batsmen with their variety of bowling.
So India is the favorite to win this match against Australia due to in-depth batting and one of the best bowling attacks.
