There were no reports of any injuries in the Indian team at the time of writing. Despite facing a big defeat in the last game, the selectors may not make changes to the current lineup.
Shikhar Dhawan has a fifty in his only ODI innings at this ground and the team will look to him for scoring the big runs. Virat Kohli lasted just two deliveries at Guwahati but he is expected to make a strong comeback at Hyderabad. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been very impressive since the start of the ODI series and India will depend on him for getting the early breakthroughs with the new ball. The spin pair of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal were a bit off colour last time and it will be crucial to the team’s chances that they deliver on Friday night.
India suffered a batting collapse right at the start of their innings in the last game. They kept on losing wickets to a point from where it became extremely difficult for them to post a respectable first-innings total. The hosts have now lost three out of their seven T20Is this year.
The Aussies rely on David Warner a lot at the top of the order but he has struggled on this tour which will put more pressure on the in-form Aaron Finch. Finch will be the key man once again for Australia while Travis Head and Moises Henriques who stitched a 109 run partnership in the last match will also be the ones to watch out for in the middle order. Nathan Coulter-Nile and Jason Behrendorff will be the major threats for the Indian batting lineup. The latter will be high on confidence after claiming a four-wicket haul the other night.
Australia were very sharp with the ball in the last match. A brilliant exhibition of pace bowling from Behrendorff pinned India to the mat early on in the game before the Aussie batsmen made short work of their target. This was Australia’s second win in five T20Is this year.
Match abandoned without a ball bowled.
Series: 3-match series drawn 1-1.
