In the white-ball leg of the tour, India and Australia will lock horns for one final time. The T20I series has already been sealed by the visitors and now have three consecutive matches on tour. The Virat Kohli-led side will be intent on whitewashing Australia, just as they did under the leadership of MS Dhoni back in 2016. The emergence of T Natarajan must have strengthened the confidence of the bowling attack of the team, and India is the favourites again.
On the other side, the hosts are dealing with severe injury problems, but head coach Justin Langer was hopeful that their skipper Aaron Finch will get fit for the third T20I. Australia does not risk playing Josh Hazlewood, who is also a big part of the Test side. By winning this game, they will be looking to escape the whitewash.
In Sydney, there is a slight possibility of rain early in the morning, but the clouds will be apparent after 8 AM. The temperature will hover around 18-19 degrees Celsius during the match.
The Sydney wicket has proven to be very good for this tour’s batsmen. Although the spinners’ overs will be critical, this should once again be a high-scoring encounter.
