3rd T20I - India vs Australia at Hyderabad (Preview)
Hyderabad, Oct 12 - After receiving an eight-wicket thrashing in the second Twenty20 International (T20I), India will aim for a better show when they take on Australia in their third and final cricket match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here on Friday.
Left-arm speedster Jason Behrendorff had wiped away India's top-four in Guwahati as the hosts were bundled out for 118 in the second match of the T20I series. Leg-spinner Adam Zampa, too, had foxed the Indians with his guile and variety.
India will hope that the batting failure was a one-off incident and their batsmen will come out all guns blazing in the decisive tie.
Australia had lost the One-Day International (ODI) series 1-4 and Thursday's match presents a great opportunity for them to take a trophy back home. They will be full of confidence after the win in the second T20I.
India skipper Virat Kohli will seek to continue his winning run in terms of series wins.
