India vs Australia, 3rd T20I: Preview, where to watch, squads and more

India eye a series-levelling win over Australia in the third T20I

Sydney, November 24: Staring at an imminent defeat after seven successive series wins on the trot, India will be hoping for yet another solid bowling performance against a brittle Australian top-order in the third and final T20 International on Sunday (November 25).

At the Melbourne Cricket Ground, intermittent rain denied India a shot at levelling the three-T20I series despite being the dominant side. Here's MyKhel preview of India vs Australia 3rd T20I.

India's fielding was sloppy in Melbourne - with wicketkeeperRishabh PantandJasprit Bumrahdropping a catch each - and is one area which will be a priority going into the series-decider, considering the standard set by the current clique of players.

The bowling department would've instilled confidence in skipper Kohli. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2-20) and Khaleel Ahmed(2-39) took four wickets between them whileKuldeep Yadav(1-23) andKrunal Pandya(1-26) too made an impact.

India went in with an unchanged side; Kohli backing all-rounder Pandya over leg-spinnerYuzvendra Chahal. And with the SCG known to be a spinner's wicket, the think-tank might be tempted to retain the same team.

Mitchell Starc has replaced injured fast bowler Billy Stanlake in Australia's squad for the series-deciding Twenty20 international against India. "Starc has got so much experience in the limited-overs games ... and we've seen how dominant he can be when he gets it right with the ball," Australia's T20 captain Aaron Finch said on Saturday. "We'll have a look at the wicket this afternoon and discuss the side but coming straight off a Shield game with an eye on the first Test, his preparations will be really good."
