India vs Australia 1st T20I: Pace challenge awaits Virat Kohli's men at Gabba

 India's tour of Australia will get underway with the first T20 International in Brisbane on Wednesday. Which team will draw first blood?
India begin a month-long tour of Australia with the first T20I in Brisbane

        Australian cricket is going through a tough period on and off the field and things could get worse when it comes to matters relating to cricket. Australia are hosting an in-form Indian team with the cavalier Virat Kohli leading the touring party. With the hosts weakened and unsettled by the absence of star batsmen Steve Smith and David Warner, India would be smelling blood. The opening contest - first T20I of the three-match series - between these two giants of cricket will take place at The Gabba in Brisbane on Wednesday and it will be hard to argue against India's favourite tag for the series.

 Virat Kohli not underestimating Australia without Steve Smith and David Warner
         India have not travelled as well as they would have liked this year. They lost the Test series in South Africa but won the ODI and T20I series. In England, India were triumphant in the T20I series but lost the ODI and Test series.

          A few days back, when Australia suffered a 21-run loss at the hands of South Africa in a curtailed encounter, it was their sixth loss in eight games - with their only two victories coming against Zimbabwe and UAE.
