In the IND vs AUS live match, batsmen would enjoy batting on the pitch in the first innings. By the second innings, as the night falls and dew accumulates on the pitch, the batsmen would have a problem striking the heavy, moist ball.

Overall Match Prediction
The IND vs AUS live match would be a cracker of a contest. The score of IND vs AUS can be followed across various online platforms. Both the teams are expected to try new opening combinations. Australia would try the classic Aaron Finch and David Warner duo, while India would be looking forward to KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal or Shikhar Dhawan and Mayank Agarwal to provide a strong opening partnership.
The Indian Premier League has provided a platform through which national coaches and team selectors can pick a strong and steady team based on the performance in the IPL. In SCG, scores can reach up to 350+ if batted properly, which is very difficult to chase given the competitive nature of the bowlers these days. Scoring runs would come at a premium in the second innings as the pitch would flatten and the ball would get moistened. IND vs AUS today’s match prediction points towards a team India win, which, under the captaincy of Virat Kohli is very consistent and performed well on Australian soil.
The Indians winning this game would also mean they gain some points in the ICC team rankings as well as the players who would perform get some points to rise higher in the ICC player rankings. There would be some cracking head to head competition between Virat Kohli and Mitchell Starc, KL Rahul and Pat Cummins. On the other hand, Jasprit Bumrah would be looking to take the wicket of dominant opener David Warner and Mohammad Shami would aim for the middle stump of former Australian Captain Steve Smith. IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore teammates Aaron Finch and Virat Kohli become rivals in their national duties as they lead their respective sides to glory.
Fans can enjoy the streaming of IND vs AUS live score on various online platforms through the comfort of their home, though some local fans would be allowed in the stadium by the Australian Cricket Board. It will be exciting to see how the game unfolds on the Australian pitch on 27th November (Friday). Till then keep up with all the latest updates coming in from our side.
