India Vs Australia T20I records: Kohli leading run-getter, Bumrah top wicket-taker

Brisbane, Nov 19: Team India, under the leadership of Virat Kohli, will be locking horns with Australia in a three-match Twenty20 International series, starting November 21.

The Men In Blue must be upbeat with their recent limited-overs exploits when they defeated West Indies at home. However, playing Australia in Australia isn't going to be easy for India, even if they are ranked second in ICC T20I rankings.

India tour of Australia: Full Schedule

The visitors would be looking to take inspiration from their previous T20I series win against in Australia where they defeated the hosts 3-0. However, that Indian team was led by the charismatic captain, MS Dhoni, who isn't a part of this Indian squad.

The contests between India and Australia have always been interesting as one can never predict a clear winner out of the two.

The Indian Team might miss the experience of Dhoni, but this Kohli-led side is capable of beating even the toughest of opponents if they play to the best of their potential.

India and Australia have played 16 T20Is so far. The Men In Blue have won 10 while the Aussies have tasted success in 5. One match was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Last time when India toured Australia for a limited-overs series in 2016, the Men In Blue whitewashed the Aussies and Kohli would be eager to repeat a similar performance
