India and Australia have been rivals for quite a long time now. Although the current Indian cricket team has been enjoying the upper hand recently, it is the Australian team which has been more dominant in the past.

#1 Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli is the undisputed best batsman in the world at the moment. The Indian captain loves the Australian pitches and the ground energy. He has proven his dominance in Australia in the past. Last year Virat captained India to their first ever Test Series win in the land down under. He would be extremely excited about duplicating that result.
#2 David Warner
David Warner is one of the most fearless batsmen in the Australian squad. The opener has proved to be an asset for the Australians in all formats of the game. If Warner finds his touch, he can single-handedly decimate the opponent team. Being one of the senior players, a lot would be resting on Warner's shoulders.
#3 Jasprit Bumrah
Bumrah has been the leader of India's bowling attack for the last few of years now. India's ace fast bowler has been consistent in scalping wickets without leaking too many runs. A couple of years ago, Bumrah was considered only to be a white ball bowler. But in the recent past Bumrah has displayed his proficiency with the red ball as well.
#4 Aaron Finch
Aaron Finch is one of the biggest names in Australian cricket at the moment. However his current form doesn't look good for Australia. Finch has had quite a few disappointing performances in the IPL 2020 for Royal Challengers Bangalore. His form is going to be crucial for the Australian team if they want to defeat the Indian team.
