Cricket Match Preview:

Luck and rain continue to play the spoilsport for India as the rain once again halted their progress when they had Australia struggling for 132 for 7 after 19 overs in the second T20 cricket game. They would have hoped to chase it down with their batting line up. But now they are left with the opportunity to level the cricket series. Australia would be feeling lucky to get away with an abandoned game in the second game.

India displayed a much-improved bowling performance in the second T20 cricket game at Melbourne. They kept on picking up wickets at regular intervals and never allowed any partnership to flourish at any point in time. Unlike the first game of cricket, where the likes of Chris Lynn and Glenn Maxwell targeted the spin bowling of Krunal Pandya and pace bowling of Khaleel Ahmed, they could not do the same on this occasion due to early wickets.

India deliberately bowled wide outside the off stump knowing that most of the Australian batsmen like to go to the leg side for their big stroke. As a result of which, we saw the wicket of Marcus Stoinis caught on the cover boundary. Kuldeep Yadav meanwhile continued his fantastic wicket-taking form by picking up Glenn Maxwell’s wicket with a beautiful wrong-un. Even Krunal Pandya, who had an ordinary first cricket game, had a good return in the second T20.

India would be disappointed that they could not get the chance to bat as they would have fancied chasing down the total. Australia, meanwhile, would like to regroup and think about how they would like to go about their batting in the third cricket game as it seemed pretty one-dimensional, with everyone looking to go after the bowling in the same manner instead of building the innings.

Cricket Match Information:

India and Australia will take on each other in the final T20 cricket game at Sydney. India are still behind Australia in the series by 1-0 after the second T20 cricket game was washed out by rain. If Australia win the last cricket, they will win the series, while if India win the last game, they will level the series.


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

India had a good outing with the ball in the second cricket game compared to their first game. Our prediction is they will go with the same lineup as the second T20 game, barring any injury.

Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:

  • Rohit Sharma
  • Shikhar Dhawan
  • KL Rahul
  • Virat Kohli
  • Rishabh Pant
  • Dinesh Karthik
  • Krunal Pandya
  • Khaleel Ahmed
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Bhuvaneshwar Kumar
  • Jasprit Bumrah


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Australia were very good with the bat in the first game of cricket. But in the second cricket game, they struggled with the bat. They have called Mitch Starc in place of injured Billy Stanlake. Our prediction is that will be the only change in the Australian lineup for this game of cricket.

Here is our prediction of Australia’s playing XI:

  • Aaron Finch
  • Chris Lynn
  • D’Arcy Short
  • Glenn Maxwell
  • Marcus Stoinis
  • AT Carey
  • BR McDermott
  • Mitch Starc
  • Andrew Tye
  • Ashton Agar
  • Nathan Coulter-Nile

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Rohit Sharma had a poor first T20 game of cricket. However, he is a brilliant white ball player hence, our prediction is of a quality knock from Rohit in the third T20 international game.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

Sydney Cricket Ground has a rich traditional history like Melbourne Cricket Ground. The pitches in Sydney tend to assist spinners more than any other cricket ground in Australia. However, this being the T20 game, the curators will avoid providing too much assistance to the bowlers. Our prediction is of the score around 160 being the match-winning one and it should be a close game of cricket. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

India will be the favourites going into the third T20 cricket game. Their improved showing in the second T20 would have given them confidence and they know that they have the batting to win them the game. Australia, meanwhile, would be hoping that the presence of Starc will add to the penetration in their bowling. Our prediction is of an Indian victory in the third and final T20 cricket game.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Rohit Sharma (IND) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Kuldeep Yadav (IND) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Rohit Sharma (IND)
