How is India’s record against Australia in Mumbai?
The record of the Indian team against Australia at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai has not been anything special. Both the teams have faced each other a total of four times at this ground. During this, Australia won thrice. India got the only victory in the year 2007 under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Earlier, under the captaincy of Mohammad Azharuddin (1996), Rahul Dravid (2003) and Virat Kohli (2020), Team India had to face defeat badly.
In such a situation, if the Indian team wins the first match under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya, then he will become the second captain after Dhoni to defeat the Kangaroo team in Wankhede. However, it is not going to be easy at all for Hardik Pandya.
On the other hand, talking about Team India’s batting on this ground, its highest score against Australia is only 255 runs, which was made under the captaincy of Virat Kohli in 2020. Australia won this match by 10 wickets by scoring 258 runs in just 37.4 overs. Aaron Finch (110) and David Warner (128) played excellent centuries for Australia.
