India vs Australia Predictions
While India won the 2018-19 Test series on Australian soil, Australia are favourite to win the Test series in the India tour of Australia, 2020-21. With the return of David Warner and Steven Smith and the emergence of Marnus Labuschagne, Australia are a much stronger batting unit than the 2018-19 series and are likely to emerge on top.
Australia boast the best pace bowling unit in world cricket. Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood will test the Indian batting line-up. The ODI series could prove to be a different ball game.
While Australia are an excellent ODI outfit, India have a more balanced ODI squad and are likely to win. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are arguably the best ODI batsmen in world cricket at the moment; KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer and Hardik Pandya are extremely talented batsmen in their own right.
Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravindra Jadeja and Yuzvendra Chahal make for a potent bowling line-up. While the ODI series is expected to be a close affair, India are favourite to win.
India vs Australia General Betting Tips and Strategies
Before you place a bet on the India vs Australia Test series or ODI series, you should go through match predictions, betting tips and strategies, player and team form guides, head-to-head statistics, past match results and the latest news.
Australian conditions are conducive to pace bowling, while Australian pitches offer pace, bounce and swing. Additionally, Australian bowlers have proven to be a handful for many Indian batsmen over the years.
While India’s pace bowling unit has improved considerably over time and went toe-to-toe with Australia in the 2018-19 Test series Down Under, Australia are a more experienced side coming into the India tour of Australia, 2020-21 and are likely to beat India.
The ODI series may offer greater neutrality of bowling conditions. That said, expect the ball to jag around in the first ten overs of an innings. Given India’s supremacy in the limited overs scheme of things, they are likely to trump Australia in the ODI series.
It is quite difficult to place a Series Correct Score bet, as the betting market requires you to correctly predict the score of a series. That said, we feel Australia will win the Test series 2-1. We do not expect any of the four Test matches to be drawn (unless rain washes away a day or more of play). We predict that the ODI series to finish 2-1 or 3-0 in India’s favour.
You should place a To Win the Match bet and a Match Handicap bet according to the information mentioned in this section, and a Top Team Batsman bet and a Highest Individual Score bet on Virat Kohli, Steven Smith, David Warner and Rohit Sharma.
Batsman Matches is an interesting betting market which requires you to predict which of two paired batsmen will outscore the other. We advise placing a Player to Score Most Sixes bet on Rohit Sharma, Aaron Finch and David Warner.
You should place a Top Team Bowler bet on Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal, and a Player of the Match bet on Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Yuzvendra Chahal, Pat Cummins, David Warner and Steven Smith.

India Tour of Australia Squads
The squads for the India tour of Australia, 2020-21 have not been announced yet. We will update you when this information is available.
India vs Australia – Players to Look Out For
Here are a few players who could make a major impact in the India tour of Australia, 2020-21:
Steven Smith is Australia’s best Test batsman and one of the best players in world cricket. It is hard to imagine that Smith had emerged on the international scene as a spinner! While Smith is not the most orthodox of batsmen, his unique batting style has brought him runs galore over the years.
Steven Smith has scored 26 Test centuries at an outstanding average of 62.84 at the time of writing. Although he did not play in the 2018-19 Australia vs India Test series, he will give his all to help Australia set the record straight.
David Warner emerged on the international stage as a pure T20 batsman. He has developed into one of Australia’s finest ever batsmen across all formats of the game. Warner paces his innings according to the match situation – he can tear apart a bowling attack if the need arises, or accumulate runs and pace his innings to help his team over the line.
If Steven Smith is Australia’s most reliable Test batsman, Warner is Australia’s most reliable batsman across all formats of the game. He has scored 24 Test centuries, 18 ODI centuries, and 1 T20I century. Warner must perform well if Australia are to win the Test series and the ODI series.
Marnus Labuschagne has become one of Australia’s most reliable Test batsmen. His stock has risen considerably ever since he became the first concussion substitute in Test and Ashes history, and he was named Australia’s Test player of the year in February, 2020.
Labuschagne is blessed with a solid technique and composure. He has an outstanding Test average of 63.43 at the time of writing, and could have a massive say on how things turn out in the upcoming Australia vs India Test series.
India’s captain and most reliable batsman, Virat Kohli is one of the best batsmen in world cricket, if not the best. Kohli has scored a mountain of runs on Australian soil, and led India to a famous Test series win in the 2018-19 India tour of Australia.
Kohli has scored 70 international centuries at the time of writing, and will be aiming at adding many more to his tally during the India tour of Australia, 2020-21. If Kohli performs at his level best, India will be hard to beat.
Rohit Sharma is a vital component of India’s success in the limited overs formats of the game. While Sharma has not yet cemented his place in the Test side, he is one of the best batsmen in the world in the ODI and the T20 format.
Sharma has an appetite for big scores, and India will hope that he can score heavily at the top of the order and help them towards securing an ODI series win. The 2020-21 India tour of Australia is the perfect opportunity for Sharma to play his way into the Test side and become a first team regular.
Best Matches in India vs Australia History
Here are a few of the most memorable matches in the history of India vs Australia cricket:
2nd Test match, Australia tour of India, 2001
This Test match is perhaps the most fondly remembered in the history of India vs Australia Test cricket. Australia had won a record 16 consecutive Test matches and were eyeing a 17th. Australia won the toss and elected to bat first at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Captain Steve Waugh scored a superb century to help Australia post a competitive total of 445 runs on the board.
In reply, India were bowled out for a mere 171 runs and were forced to bat again. Glenn McGrath took 4 wickets for 18 runs and was the pick of the bowlers. Everyone wrote India off and expected Australia to wrap up the match in double quick time – the rest is history.
VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid put on 376 runs for the 5th wicket to help India to a massive lead of 383 runs. VVS Laxman scored the then highest individual Test score by an Indian batsman of 281 runs. Rahul Dravid played a sublime knock of 180 runs.
Chasing 384 runs for victory, Harbhajan Singh put on a show and picked up 6 wickets to help India to a 171 run victory on the final day of the Test match.
2003 ICC Cricket World Cup Final
The 2003 Cricket World Cup Final was a one-sided affair. Defending champions Australia were sent in to bat first and posted an enormous total of 359 runs on the board. Captain Ricky Ponting scored a scintillating century (140 off 121 balls) and was ably supported by Adam Gilchrist (57 off 48 balls) and Damien Martyn (88 off 84 balls).
India got off to the worst possible start, as they lost the wicket of their talisman Sachin Tendulkar with just 4 runs on the board. At 59 for 3, hopes for an Indian victory were slim. All hopes were dashed when Virender Sehwag was dismissed for 82 in the 24th over.
Australia beat India by 125 runs to lift their 3rd World Cup title.
2nd Semi-final, 2007 T20 World Cup
Ably led by their newly appointed captain MS Dhoni, India were eyeing a berth alongside Pakistan in the 2007 T20 World Cup Final. India won the toss and elected to bat first. After a slow start, Yuvraj Singh (70 off 30 balls) and MS Dhoni (36 off 18 balls) helped India to a total of 188 runs.
In reply, Australia were in a commanding position at 134-2 in 14.3 overs. Sreesanth castled Matthew Hayden off the very next delivery to spark an Indian revival. Australia lost a further 4 wickets for 39 runs to hand India a 15 run victory. Yuvraj Singh was declared man of the match for his swashbuckling innings.
