The chances for an Indian victory look clouded at the moment and only some key performances from the visitng side could turn the tables in their favor. Now, it’s pretty obvious that even a triumph by whatsoever margin would only put India alongside the mighty Australian in the 3-match series, considering a defeat would have made the matter sour, a series draw is surely something which could pump up the Indian sentiments before the 4-match Tests commence from December 6th. On that note, here are the names of the three Indian players who’d hold a key for the Men in Blue’s victory in the much coveted India vs Australia 3rd T20I at Sydney.
India vs Australia 3rd T20I: 3 Indian players to watch out for
The swing specialist is undoubtedly the best in the business at the moment and a potential match-winner for India in the must-win duel at Sydney. The past couple of T20Is witnessed the 29-year-old laying a complete dominance over the likes of the Aussie unit and squandering their chance for amassing a major total. In the first T20I, he registered a figure of 0/15 followed by a number of 2/20 at MCG. Thus, it appears all the more plausible that the UP lad would play a crucial role for the Indian side if they are to bounce meritorious at SCG.
The 31-year-old didn’t get a chance to light the game at MCG, and it all converges down to his performance in the forthcoming duel at SCG which could lead India to the roads of a victory, in the process ensure a draw-up in the 3-match T20I series.
The four-time T20I centurion couldn’t exhibit his sensational prowess in the first T20I at Brisbane, thus, it looks all the more reasonable for a player of his caliber to put up an exhilarating show and get the headlines going under his name for some duration.
The southpaw emitted one of his finest set of performances in the white-ball cricket but was unfortunate to have landed up on the losing end. His knock of 76 in 42 deliveries had nearly swept the Aussie unit, and the upcoming T20I being a do-or-die feud for their side could expect a similar inning from the 32-year-old in a quest for acquiring a 1-1 draw in the 3-match T20Is, the last of which would be played on Sydney’s turf.
