India

Indian side dominated Australian bowlers and chased down the target of 195 runs. Openers KL Rahul ( 30 from 22) and Shikhar Dhawan ( 52 from 36 balls) gave the perfect opening stand of 56 runs in 5.2 overs. Indian middle-order was on the mark in the last game. Captain Virat Kohli ( 40 from 24 balls) and all-rounder Hardik Pandya ( 42 from 22 balls) helped the team to easily chase the target given by Australia.

In the absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami, Indian bowlers conceded more runs than the 1st match. Yorker king T. Natarajan once again showed his skills in the death overs and bowled an economical spell of 20 runs for 2 wickets in his spell of 4 overs.

Fielding remains the main concern for the team since they have dropped a few catches in the last match once again, but managed to beat Australia with the batting unit. They will be now looking to continue that winning momentum in the last match also.

Venue Details

The 3rd T20 match of the series is going to play at Sydney Cricket Ground which is considered as one of the high scoring grounds. By looking at the batting orders of both the teams and looking at the performances at some ground in the previous game, this 3rd match of the series also may turn into a high scoring thriller.

Toss Prediction

The ground conducted just 8 T20Is and the pitch offers a slight advantage to batsmen. The team bowling first has won 5 out of 8 matches played at the ground while after batting first, the team won 2 matches and one remained resultless. The pitch will be easy to play while chasing.

The team winning the toss should look to the field first here.

Winning Prediction

The Indian side has a slight edge over Australian side in the batting department after few important players of an Australian unit are not playing this T20 series. Indian bowling attack at the death overs offers a huge advantage to the team to restrict the Australian side. India also have the momentum with them.

We predict that India will come victorious against Australia.
