India vs Australia T20Is: Ideal playing XI for India in the first T20I
- This article describes the ideal playing XI for India in the first T20I.
#4 Rishabh Pant
Rishabh Pant has been making headlines ever since his performance against Australia in the Test series down under. He impressed everyone both with the bat and the gloves. He is considered as the successor to the legend Mahendra Singh Dhoni and he has already achieved what many of the Indian keepers could not in his short career.
His stints with his IPL franchise Delhi Daredevils help him in securing this no.4 spot, as he made a chunk of runs for the franchise. India will want Pant, more than anyone, to score a lot of runs.
#5 Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk)
The stalwart of the Indian team will don the gloves for this home series against the Aussies. MS Dhoni made a comeback to the T20 side after being overlooked for Rishabh Pant. He could use every match from now to get his lost touch back before the World Cup.
