Virat Kohli (1,852) is just 38 runs shy of eclipsing Tillakaratne Dilshan (1,889) as the second-most prolific run scorer in T20I history; the India captain does come into this showdown having posted his first T20I duck however.
During the 2nd T20I of the series, Jason Behrendorff became the first man to take four wickets in a T20I for Australia against India; his figures of 4/21 were the fifth-best ever recorded in this format for his country.
Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad is hosting a T20 International for the first time; India have won each of their last five matches there however (three Tests and two ODIs).
With one victory apiece so far, the victor in this match will win the three-game series; India will be hoping to make it three T20I bilateral series unbeaten (2+ series games) against Australia (W1 D1).
Australia come into this series decider having ended a run of seven T20I defeats on the bounce to India in their last outing.
