Australia in India Betting Tips

Australia in India too Close to Call

Fresh off the back of 2-1 ODI series victory against England the Australia one-day side are gearing up for a seven-game tour of India to kick start their summer.

Captain Michael Clarke has been named subject to fitness by coach Darren Lehmann, while Brad Haddin is back in the side and Mitchell Johnson get the nod after fruitful performances against the English this September. Clarke is suffering from chronic back pain, however, and with the next Ashes series just a few months away is expected to miss most of the tour.

Having won nine of their last 12 completed games this Aussie team don’t exactly require Clarke, although he could be useful against a rampant India ODI outfit.

Both teams are on form; separating India and Australia in the cricket betting odds will be difficult for many punters. A developing Virat Kohli-led team has just breezed past Zimbabwe and the team have lost just five ODIs all year.

Mitch Is Back With a Bang !!!

A much needed series win for the Aussies on Monday brought respite to both the team and their fans. After winning the Natwest one day series 2-1, the Australian team jumped to 2nd position in the ICC ODI Rankings. This ODI series was the “battle for Pride” for Australian Skipper Michael Clarke and his team, after the painful Ashes defeat. Mitchell Johnson, 31 years left handed pacer has made remarkable impact with his bowling in this series.

Johnson, who missed ashes selection earlier in this year, played a key role in Australia’s victory in this series. He took 2 wickets in his 10 Overs for 21 runs in the final ODI game, which included his 200th ODI wicket. With his remarkable efforts, Mitchell became 5th Australian bowler to reach 200 ODI wickets after Glenn McGrath, Shane Warne, Craig McDermott and Brett Lee.
