Here are Guy Giles' best cricket tips for the first T20 match between Australia and India in Canberra on Friday.


Australia to win

Australia lost the final match of the ODI series on Wednesday but should bounce back in the first T20.

They were missing several big names after comfortably winning the first two ODIs, and will field a strong side in Canberra.

Australia have won the opening match in four of their last five T20 series.

Aaron Finch to hit a six

Finch recovered from a poor IPL campaign to impress for Australia in the ODI series, hitting two half-centuries and one ton in three innings.

He cleared the ropes in all three of those matches, and is a good bet to do so again from the top of the order on Friday.

Virat Kohli to score 50+ runs

Kohli is another who seems to have put a disappointing IPL behind him, with the India talisman compiling two half-centuries in three innings.

When Kohli is in this kind of form he is hard to stop, and another big score on Friday wouldn’t be a surprise.

Jasprit Bumrah to take over 1.5 wickets

Bumrah confirmed his status as one of the world’s best T20 bowlers with 27 wickets in the IPL, and he will surely play a big role in this series.

He has taken eight wickets in six previous T20 appearances in Australia, and took two wickets on this ground in the final ODI.
