Australia have a very good batting line-up that is almost as good as the Indian batting order. One of the best ways through which Australia can make a major impact would be in the bowling segment. Matthew Wadw has been one of the top players for Australia in recent matches while Cameron Green continues to be the magic hand on a regular basis. The importance for Australian bowlers will be in taking up the Indian top order as soon as possible with KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma in fine form. Due to the Indian bowling line-up yet to find consistency, it would not be a huge surprise to approach the game with a lot of confidence even after the recent defeat.
