#AUSvIND T20 Trivia - All you need to know: Australia v India T20s

What is it?

Fierce rivals Australia and India will meet in three Twenty20 Internationals, starting on Tuesday, January 26 at Adelaide Oval. Games will also be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (January 29) and Sydney Cricket Ground (January 31).
Not only will some of the world's best male players be in action, the matches are double-headers also featuring the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars taking on the India women's team.
Who's playing?

Australia's selectors have included the 'Wild Thing' Shaun Tait and uncapped paceman Andrew Tye in a 17-man squad for the three T20Is, while Australia's Test off-spinner Nathan Lyon also gets the chance for his first T20 international cap in an enlarged squad picked to allow coaching staff and selectors to take a closer look at the stars of the KFC Big Bash League with an eye to picking a squad for the World T20 tournament.
Glenn Maxwell has been ruled out of the first match due to a hamstring injury but is expected to return for Friday's second match.
India have been forced to make two changes for the T20 leg of their tour of Australia, with Ajinkya Rahane and Bhuvneshwar Kumar both suffering hand injuries.
Rahane split the webbing in his right hand during the fourth Victoria Bitter ODI in Canberra on Wednesday, with allrounder Gurkeerat Singh Mann named as cover for the T20 series, but the batsman will stay with the squad and is still a chance to play during the series. Bhuvneshwar has flown home with a hairline fracture in his left thumb and his place has been taken by allrounder Rishi Dhawan.
Australia squad: Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Steve Smith, Shane Watson, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Wade, James Faulkner, John Hastings, Shaun Marsh, Cameron Boyce, Nathan Lyon, Chris Lynn, Travis Head, Kane Richardson, Andrew Tye, Scott Boland, Shaun Tait
India squad: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane (Gurkeerat Singh Mann to act as cover), Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni (c), Suresh Raina, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Rishi Dhawan, Harbhajan Singh, Umesh Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Ashish Nehra

What's the head-to-head record? 

Australia and India have met nine times in T20I, with India winning five to Australia's four.
The last time they met was in Dhaka during the 2014 World T20, a match India won by 73 runs.
What's the form like?

Twenty20 Internationals have been a rare commodity for Australia of late. They played just one in 2015, suffering a five-run defeat to England. 
India's most recent T20 series resulted in a 2-0 defeat on home soil to South Africa last October.
Australia however will be buoyed by their 4-1 win in the Victoria Bitter ODIs, in a series that was dominated by the batsmen.  
How about the Southern Stars? What do I need to know?

The world's No.1 women's team will meet India in three T20s, which will help the Southern Stars prepare for their bid to win a fourth (yes, fourth!) Women's World T20 in a row.
Australia's squad features superstars Meg Lanning, Ellyse Perry and Alyssa Healy, alongside young guns including 17-year-old Lauren Cheatle. India's captain Mithali Raj is ranked in the top 10 batters in the world, while quick Jhulan Goswamy is the world's best ODI bowler.
Last time the teams met, in India in 2012, Australia won 3-0, but India claimed a 2-0 series win on Australian soil in 2009.
Southern Stars squad: Meg Lanning (c), Alex Blackwell, Lauren Cheatle, Sarah Coyte, Rene Farrell, Holly Ferling, Grace Harris, Alyssa Healy, Jess Jonassen, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Naomi Stalenberg 
India squad: Mithali Raj (c), Jhulan Goswamy, Smriti Mandhana, MD Thirushkamini, Harmanpreet Kaur, Veda Krishnamurthy, Shikha Pandey, Niranjana Nagarajan, Sushma Verma, Ekta Bisht, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Poonam Yadav, VR Vanitha, Anuja Patil, Deepti Sharma
