BCCI announce 12-man squad for 1st T20I against Australia

'Australia in Australia is always going to be dangerous' – Rohit Sharma 19 Nov 18

The live telecast of the first T20I between India and Australia (IND v AUS) will start at 1:20 PM on November 21 (Wednesday).

"Obviously it's not that easy for us but, again, all the guys are quite determined to change things around this time".

The flamboyant cricketer who represents the Mumbai Indians in the IPL was speaking on the sidelines of a function in the city on Tuesday. So they understand the conditions.

Indian cricket team, under the leadership of in-form skipper Virat Kohli, has taken great strides in the current calendar year and will be riding high on confidence after annihilating West Indies across all formats of the game recently.

Although Knight's side have won all four of the World T20 matches against India, they face a tricky task against the unbeaten side as they aim reach their first final in the tournament since 2014.

For Sharma, the bounce at the Gabba will play to his advantage, he suggested.

"The reason we flew down here is to get used to the bounce".

"I'm trying hard to be fit for the ODI series against Australia to start in January 2019. Our focus as a team is to play good quality cricket and win games of cricket", he said. "Your performance is always appreciated but having said that, the bounce sometimes, in places like Brisbane and Perth, allows me to play my game because I've grown up playing on cemented pitches back home". I like to keep it simple; try and go out there and enjoy my game. But Sharma's sojourns to Australia go all the way back to 2007, when he travelled as a teenager. "I've had a good time in Australia playing white-ball cricket". Right now, I am not thinking about it.

Shastri refused to believe that Australian team has lost its aura after what all happened during the past few months. When you do well in places like Australia, you feel good as a team. "We gave them a target of 140, which they chased after losing six wickets", Sharma said. "So it was a close game".

When and what time is the India vs Australia? "There is a real good feeling in the group for all three formats".
