Australia's Women's tour of India will commence with the 1st of the 5 T20Is on Friday. The two teams now have celebrated rivalry in the recent past but the Indian Women's team has gone on to lose to Australia in the finals of both the Commonwealth Games 2022 as well as the Women's T20 World Cup.
The two sides have been among the best in Women's cricket, but it is the Australian team that has maintained its dominance in world events also maintaining a super record over India in bilateral cricket.
Ahead of the 1st T20I, here are the predictions for the match and the betting odds for this fixture.
1. Toss Prediction
India managed to win just 1 of their last 3 tosses in the Women's Asia Cup. On the other hand, Australia Women won each of their last 3 tosses in the Commonwealth Games 2022. So based on these stats, expect Australia Women to win the toss in this match.
2. Win Possibility
Pre-series favourites are Australia. They have dominated India in bilateral and multinational events. However, India would want to learn from their past mistakes and implement those learnings in this series. Having said that, Australia should be able to start with a victory.
3. Team of the Day
The Team of the Day is Australia Women. The two sides have met each other on 25 occasions and Australia have emerged victorious on 18 of these instances. India, meanwhile, have won just 6 with 1 game ending without any result. Even on Indian soil, Australia have won 6 out of the 7 matches.
4. Average first innings total and Predicted powerplay score
This is set to be the first international T20I here. One could expect scores in the range of 140-160. The powerplay score is expected to be between 30-50.
