AUS vs IND Dream11 Prediction: With one eye already on upcoming test series, India and Australia will lock horns at SCG today in the third and final T20I of the series. India will be looking to inflict a clean-sweep and if they do so, they will move up to number 2 position in ICC T20I rankings. On the other hand, Australia are missing many of their first choice players and will continue to give youngsters a go again today. We will preview AUS vs IND Dream11 contest.
In the second T20I, India won the toss and elected to bowl first. Matthew Wade came out blazing on his captaincy debut in the powerplay. He slammed 58 from just 32 balls while Steve Smith contributed 46 important runs. Glenn Maxwell and Moises Henriques chipped in with 20s while Marcus Stoinis applied finishing touches as Australia posted 194 runs on the board. T Natarajan again impressed everyone with his spell of 2-20 from his 4 overs.
In reply, Indian openers flexed their muscles after couple of quiet overs at the start. KL Rahul was dismissed in the powerplay but Shikhar Dhawan continued on his work with Virat Kohli at the other end. Former made 52 while Virat Kohli drove a quick-fire 40 to his name. But it was Hardik Pandya who took India to a series win from a difficult position in last couple of overs. He remained unbeaten on 42 from just 22 balls as India sailed home with two balls to go. Leg-spinners Mitchell Swepson and Adam Zampa were impressive from Australian perspective.
In head-to-head comparisons, India are leading comfortably with 13-8 from 23 matches played between these two sides. If India win this, this will be their 11th consecutive T20I win while Virat Kohli will become only the second captain after MS Dhoni to affect a whitewash to Australia on their home soils. MS Dhoni achieved the feat in T20I as well during the 2016 tour.
Pitch and Conditions
SCG pitches had plenty of runs in 3 matches that we have seen so far here in this white-ball leg and it is unlikely that we get to see anything else today as well. In the last game, wrist-spinners generated some spin but not significant to trouble the batters consistently. Another perfect Sydney day is expected today weather wise.
