India will look to level the three match T20I series when they take on Australia in the third and last match at Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney on Sunday. Australia won first match by 4 runs by DLS method and in the second match India was on frontfoot but the match was abandoned due to rain. All Indian bowlers including Kahleel Ahmed and Krunal Pandya were top class in the second T20I but their fielding wasn't that impressive so they need to do well in this department. On the other hand, Australia will aim for their maiden series win over India in T20I format and they have also included Mitchell Starc as replacement for the injured pacer Billy Stanlake and it'll boost their confidence further.
