IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Before the third and final T20 match to be held in Hyderabad, former India batsman Wasim Jaffer has given his reaction about Team India’s playing XI. He has kept Rishabh Pant out in this team.
The caravan of the 3-match T20 series between India and Australia has reached the last stage. At present, both the teams are tied at 1-1 in the series and the decider match will be played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Looking at the performance so far, a tough competition can be seen in Hyderabad. In the Mohali T20, where Australia won by 4 wickets after achieving a big target, in the 8 over match in Nagpur, Team India made a tremendous comeback and leveled 1-1.
In that 8-over match, where Jasprit Bumrah made a comeback, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was kept out. Former Indian batsman Wasim Jaffer has spoken about the playing XI ahead of the deciding match in Hyderabad. According to him, the role of toss will be very important in this match as well as he has said that Bhuvneshwar Kumar will once again return in place of Rishabh Pant in this match.
Once again KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma will be seen opening. In Nagpur, Rohit scored 46 runs in 20 balls while batting tremendously. It is expected that he will show his strength once again in this decisive match.
Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav will land at number 3 and 4. After the Asia Cup, Virat has proved to be ineffective in two consecutive innings, so there will be hope from him in this match. The last time Virat played an unbeaten 94 against West Indies at this ground. Suryakumar Yadav was dismissed without opening the account in Nagpur, so he would also be expected to bat well.
Hardik Pandya and Dinesh Karthik will be at number 5 and 6 respectively while Axar Patel can bat at number 7. Talking about the bowling order, the arrival of Jasprit Bumrah has strengthened the bowling. Even though Bumrah bowled 2 overs in the last match, he impressed everyone in the same. The return of Bhuvneshwar Kumar in this match is also considered fixed.
Probable playing XI in the decider
Rohit Sharma (Captain), KL Rahul (Vice-Captain), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik (WK), Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar
