India and take on each other in a three-match T20I series with the first game in Mohali on September 20. The next two games will be played on September 23 and 25 respectively. India and Australia last faced each other in 2020-21. During the tour, India played a T20I, ODI, and Test series against Australia. India lost the ODI series 1-2 but won the T20I series 2-1 and the Test series 2-1.

Both teams will take this series as a dress rehearsal for the T20 World Cup in Australia a month later. India are heading into this series following their disappointing Asia Cup campaign. They won both league games and then lost against Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the Super 4s to bow out of the tournament. Sri Lanka were the ultimate winner of Asia Cup 2022.

Both teams are missing a few key players in the upcoming series. While Mohammed Shami is ruled out with covid, Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Marsh and Marcus Stoinis are ruled out with injuries.
