Australia faces India in the third and final T20I in Hyderabad on September 25, Sunday. It is the decider of the three-match series with the series poised at 1-1 after India’s win in the second T20I. The Aussies will look to seal the series with a good performance.
The Aussies scored 90/5 in a rain-truncated game. Matthew Wade‘s unbeaten 43 off 20 balls was key to the team getting there. However, India chased the score down with four balls to spare to level the series 1-1. Skipper Aaron Finch was not too puzzled by the outcome and spoke about the positives from the game.
“You probably plan for a 5 over game and then a bit more to it. Rohit played brilliantly and two overs of Axar made the difference. Wade is a calm customer at the back end and he has grown into that finisher’s role. Zampa was good too” said Finch.
Despite the defeat, Australia might back the same side to play the decider. In this article, we take a look at Australia’s likely playing XI for the third T20I against India in Hyderabad. The second T20I XI looked a lot more balanced and that is what the management might not consider changing.
