On Tuesday evening in Guwahati, India and Australia will meet in the third match of the five-match Twenty20 International series. India have taken two wickets in Visakhapatnam and forty-four runs in Thiruvananthapuram to advance in the series; therefore, should they triumph once more in this match, they will secure the series. We provide a preview of this match below. The match commences at 19:00 local time at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium.
In Sunday’s second match of the series, India were far too formidable for Australia, following a close victory in the opening game. Their batting order was especially effective in their previous match, and we anticipate that they will maintain their lead on Tuesday.
Australia, which has suffered two defeats in the first two games of the series, is well aware that a victory in this match is crucial for them to remain in the series. Although they must improve their bowling in Guwahati, doing so could potentially lead to a triumph.
Three previous Twenty20 Internationals were played at this venue, with one victory each for the fielding first and batting first teams, and one loss. Given the increasing humidity throughout the match, it is anticipated that both commanders will opt to field first.
Although the game will commence under clear skies, there will be the introduction of cloud cover in the second innings. The temperature will remain in the low to mid-20s, and the relative humidity will exceed 80% from the beginning.
The last Twenty20 International was played on this magnificent batting pitch at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, which amassed 458 runs. On Tuesday, a first-innings score of par will exceed 200.
Thus far in this series, Suryakumar Yadav has declared an identical starting eleven for both matches; therefore, we do not expect a distinct XI to be assembled in Guwahati. Arshdeep Singh has been wasteful with the ball in this Twenty20 International, but we expect him to maintain his spot in the squad.
India Squad Predicted:
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav (c), Tilak Varma, Rinku Singh, Axar Patel, Mukesh Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Prasidh Krishna, Ravi Bishnoi
Two substitutions were made to Australia’s XI from the opening game of the series: Adam Zampa and Glenn Maxwell replaced Jason Behrendorff and Aaron Hardie, respectively. We anticipate further substitutions in this match, as Sean Abbott’s position is in jeopardy after he surrendered 56 runs in three overs.
Australia Squad Predicted
Matthew Short, Steven Smith, Josh Inglis, Tim David, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Wade (c) (wk), Nathan Ellis, Jason Behrendorff, Tanveer Sangha, Adam Zampa
India vs Australia Prediction:
It was evident on Sunday that Australia is missing the majority of their frontline pace bowlers for this series, as India’s batsmen dominated the majority of the innings. Tuesday will once again be a pivotal day of play, and we anticipate that the Indian batsmen will once again make significant contributions. Despite anticipating a closer matchup on Sunday, we are placing our money on India to prevail.
