AUS vs IND 3rd T20I Top Picks To Consider:
Virat Kohli might not have got a big score in this T20I series so far, but has the potential to contribute massively in this game with the bat. Hardik Pandya has been highly impactful towards the end of the innings. The Man-of-the-Match of the previous game hammered an unbeaten 42 off just 22 balls to help team India clinch the T20I series.
T Natarajan has been the pick of the bowler for team India. With 5 wickets in 2 T20Is, he will be an important fantasy pick. Aaron Finch has been in lethal form on this India’s tour of Australia but he missed the 2nd T20I due to injury. If he is available for the 3rd T20I (as said by coach Langer), he will be a must-have player pick for your team.
Matthew Wade opened the innings in the previous game and scored 58 runs off just 32 balls, with an astonishing strike rate of 181.25. He will remain to be crucial in this match as well.
