Top Picks for IND vs AUS Dream11 Match:


Virat Kohli:

We see a very different side of Virat Kohli whenever he faces Australia. He likes scoring runs against this opposition. With Virat back in form, it would be an exciting battle.

Hardik Pandya:

Hardik would be keen to stamp his authority on the premium all-rounder on the side. He has regained his mojo. He would be more than handy with the ball on the Mohali wicket. He would love batting on the Mohali wicket.


Steve Smith:

Smith is a vital cog in the Aussie lineup. His ability to play long innings with a healthy strike rate makes him special.

Adam Zampa:

Adam Zampa is a wily leg spinner. He is in great form. The Australian leggie has a great record against India. With India’s troubles against spinners, Zampa is crucial for Australia in the middle overs.

Players to avoid for IND vs AUS Dream11 Match:


Yuzvendra Chahal:

Chahal might go for plenty of runs in this T20. His inability to bowl defensive lines on a pitch that does not offer turn might cause Chahal trouble in this match.


The Australian skipper is not in very good form. He does not have a good record against Bhuvi. He has the stern task of facing Bhuvi and Bumrah with the new ball.
