AUS vs IND 3rd T20 Prediction & Betting Tips

India will be keen to clean sweep Australia in the T-20 series as they gear up to take on the hosts Australia in the third and the final T-20 on Tuesday.. The match will be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground and is scheduled to begin at 7:10 PM local time.

You may argue that Australia are not playing their best XI but the way Virat Kohli's men have shown the character after losing the first two games on the tour has been commendable. They've now won three matches on the trot and are looking good to thrash the host 3-0 in the T-20 series.

Australia posted 194 in the previous match but you'd assume that's a below par score on this dead Sydney wicket. Mathew Wade played a gem of an inning after being promoted as a makeshift opener in the absence of Aaron Finch. Steven Smith, Glen Maxwell and Moises Henriques too got starts but none of the batsmen stayed long enough to get a big total. This is something Australia would like to rectify in the next match. 

The absence of Josh Hazelwood and Mitchell Starc, Australian bowling looks bleak and inexperienced. However, we don't expect Australia to bring either of the two in the next match as well as they won't want to risk them before the big Test series.

Talking about India, they've been fantastic since the last ODI. In KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, their top order looks in ominous form. The only cause of concern will probably be the underperformance of Sanju Samson who's missed out in both the T-20. However, Virat Kohli will be thrilled to see the form of Hardik Pandya down the order.

In the bowling department, T Natarajan has been scintillating with the ball along with Yuzvendra Chahal. They'll be the key for India along with Washinton Sunder.
