yes both have equally likely chances :
in india’s case theres a ½ * ½ chance that they would win on the first 2 throws
in australia’s case its the same. because hh and th are not counted ….. so only ht and tt are counted meaning that it depends whether or not the 2nd to last toss is heads or tails.....
