Australia host India in the 3rd and final T20 at the SCG on Tuesday. The series has already been won by India which means they may rest key players for this encounter. Can Australia avoid a series whitewash on home soil?

Australia Form


Australia needed a better performance in the 2nd T20 after losing the opening match to India in Canberra. While there was improvement on the batting front, the bowling let the hosts down as India went on to win the series with a match to spare.

Batting first at the SCG, the Aussies scored a very good 195 runs. Matthew Wade top scored with a blistering 58 runs at the top of the innings while Steven Smith added 46 runs.

The bowlers however failed to back the batsmen up as India got home with two balls to spare to win by six wickets.

With the series lost Australia will be keen to not suffer a 3-0 whitewash on home soil but they will have to produce a far better all round performance.

Australia Team News


Aaron Finch is expected to recover in time for the 3rd T20 after missing the last one. David Warner remains out injured.

Australia are unlikely to risk too many of their big players so the likes of Daniel Sams looks set to get another chance.

India Form


India secured a series victory as they won the 2nd T20 at the SCG by six wickets. It didn’t start well as Australia got off to a flying start and maintained that to score 194 runs. 

KL Rahul continued his fine form, scoring 30 runs but the stars were no doubt Shikhar Dhawan (52), Virat Kohli (40) and Hardik Pandya (42). India scored the winning runs in the final over to win by six wickets.

India Team News


Ravindra Jadeja remains out with concussion for the 3rd T20. India rested Jasprit Bumrah for the last match and with the series won, they may leave him out again. 

Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan may also be rested with the Test series in mind.

Australia vs India Head to Head


India have won five of their last nine T20’s against Australia including the last two in this series. The second T20 ended in a six wicket win for India at the SCG.

Australia vs India Odds


Australia are priced at $2.00 with India available at $1.80. Aaron Finch can be backed at $4.33 to be Australia’s best batsman. In the same market, Virat Kohli is valued at $3.60 for India.

Australia vs India Match Up


Australia have used this series to blood some new players and the lack of experience has shown. With India perhaps going the same route in the final T20 it will be an opportunity for Australia to bounce back and avoid a 3-0 home defeat.
