Our first of three warm up series as countries gear up for the T20 World cup. We head to India for three matches first up. India may be ripe for the picking after a very disappointing Asia cup.

First match is 20th September. Discuss.

India havent had much time in India recently. Like i mentioned in another thread, its an odd timing to have a T20 series with a world cup in Australia just around the corner.

I wouldnt write Australias chances off here. But one thing coming from Cairns/Townsville wickets to India will be quite an adjustement for many of the batters here.

hoping they use the world cup squad where possible and leaving replacement players green, abbott, sams and ellis as back up players only.

meaning the team could look like:

finch, (INGLIS), smith, maxwell, (DAVID), wade, (AGAR), cummins, (K.RICHARDSON), zampa, hazlewood

WARNER, MARSH, STOINIS, STARC will all come back into the XI you'd think.

Not sure Stoinis is a certainty.

Have to admit, FInch out of form, Cam Green untried much at oepner level , Steve Smith slow at 3, Inglis/David unknown quantities in India, get into 9-11 thats pretty much the start of the tail

Got a billion openers to pick from, so let’s shoehorn our best middle order prospect in.

I'm guessing they want to keep the other guys lower in the order because thats where they'll play in the WC.

Still strange though.

Aussies have 5 specialist bowlers + Maxwell to roll over his spinners. Cant question the quality of the bowling attack though.

Who would be the last person to debut for Australia having previously played for another team?

Dirk Nannes, maybe?
