Sydney: Feb 1, 2012

 

India take on hosts Australia in their first of two Twenty20 matches at Sydney. Earlier, India won the toss and elected to bowl first in the first Twenty20 match at Sydney.

 

The Indians slumped to their lowest ebb in the longer version of the last week when Australia mauled the visitors by a 4-0 margin in the Test series.

 

The drubbing at the hands of Australia was also the current ODI world champion team’s eight straight overseas Test defeat following the series loss by identical margin in England last year.

 

India lost three straight games each in the super league stage of the two consecutive T20 World Cups in England and in West Indies in 2009-10 and young batsmen were exposed big time against the short-pitched deliveries.

 

The Indians were all out on most occasions, despite having a galaxy of batting stas in their ranks.

 

But thankfully for the Indians, the present Australia T20 squad, under George Bailey, does not have menacing fast bowlers. There is neither Peter Siddle, Ben Hilfenhaus nor Ryan Harris in the team. The only one with some credentials is veteran Brett Lee, who has long retired from Test cricket.

Australia’s biggest advantage going into tomorrow’s match is that most of their players can fulfill dual roles.

 

Out-of-form Shaun Marsh will possibly get one last opportunity to show some spark tomorrow after his repeated faulures in the Test series, which led to his omission from Australia’s ODI team.

 

Shaun’s brother, the big-hitting Mitchell Marsh, is also expected to play and will provide Bailey with an all-round option.
