IND vs AUS 3rd T20I: India and Australia are set to lock horns with each other for the third and final T20 international slated to be played on Sunday, 25th September 2022. Australia won the first match by 4 wickets, while India made an outstanding comeback to level the series 1-1 on Friday. Both teams have a must-win encounter on their hands and thus it is going to be one cracker of an affair.
Skipper Rohit Sharma returned to form with a match-winning 46-run knock in the last game. It should be a big boost for the team ahead of the series decider. For India to win the match, it’s important that India make a strong start with the bat.
It will also be interesting to see how Virat Kohli fares with the bat. He has failed to impress in the last two games but would be looking to end on a high. Both Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik played in the last match as India opted to go with five bowlers including Hardik Pandya.
Going ahead, this could be an approach India might take up. Bhuvneshwar Kumar didn’t play the last game and Harshal Patel went for plenty of runs. Kumar might replace Patel in the final match or Arshdeep Singh could get a chance as well.
Australia’s middle order has to fire
For Australia, both Cameron Green and Aaron Finch have looked good in the series and, thus, you expect them to make a strong start. Middle-order hasn’t produced runs so far but Mathew Wade has provided the finishing touches that Australia needed. Wade has been outstanding with the bat in the series. He is the highest run-scorer in the series with 88 runs to his name in 2 matches.
Adam Zampa was nothing short of outstanding in the last game. He returned with figures of 3 for 16 in 2 overs. Without a doubt, he will be one of the vital cogs in the bowling department.
