As the series already been sealed, India would now aim to sweep the sole remaining match when they face a weakened Australia in the third and final T20 International on Tuesday. Virat Kohli and his men will look to create the same feat that they achieved during their visit in 2016. After suffering defeats in the first two ODIs, the Indians have turned the table around since the final ODI.
Ravindra Jadeja was ruled out of the series after suffering a concussion during the first T20 match and to clinch the series in his absence says the mettle of the team at high length. India’s morale is boosted during the series and it can be seen with them resting Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah.
India’s new white-ball sensation T. Natarajan has had a superb debut in international cricket against Australia, whose performance was very crucial on Sunday’s game where he took 2 wickets and had an economy of just 5.
The difference between India and Australia during the last game was the batting of the two teams during the middle overs. Australia lost a bit of momentum after stand-in skipper Matthew Wade was dismissed while his opposite number Kohli played some outrageous shots after the Powerplay to up the ante. Shreyas Iyer’s induction in place of an injured Manish Pandey also worked well for the visitors. The only glitch of India was Yuzvendra Chahal’s rare off-day.
