With victories in Vishakhapatnam and Thiruvananthapuram, India has taken a 2-0 lead and is aiming for a clean sweep in the five-match T20I series against Australia in Guwahati. The Indian team, under the leadership of Suryakumar Yadav, secured a nail-biting win in the first match and followed it up with a convincing 44-run victory on Sunday.

Australia, despite being the reigning ODI World Cup champions, have struggled in the absence of several key players. However, they have one final chance to stay in the series.

No doubt India has the momentum built for them to win this series but you can never right off Aussies. They can bounce back anytime and win it.
 
India on the verge of smashing Pakistan’s record of most T20I wins

Team India are eyeing a big record as they gear up for the IND vs AUS 3rd T20. Suryakumar Yadav & Co are on the verge of smashing Pakistan’s record of Most T20I wins. India will eye their 136th win in the format as they take on Australia at Barsapara Stadium on Tuesday.

Suryakumar Yadav’s leadership has been a huge success for India’s first two T20 matches. Already up 2-0, India can become the most successful T20I side in history. With 135 wins in 211 games, India are now equal with Pakistan on most wins.

Pakistan have won 135 games as well in 226 matches. The Indian Cricket Team are currently on a 12-series unbeaten streak at home turf with their last loss coming against Australia back in February of 2019.

India is well on the track to be the most successful team today. The way India is playing this record seems quite possible to made today.
 
The third game is the final game in the series. The word 'final' is like psychological terror for Indians.

I expect the Indian team to lose this game tamely. :rolleyes:
 
World Cup stars return home as Australia revamp squad for remaining India T20Is

Australia have rung in several changes to their squad for the remainder of the ongoing T20I series against India.

Six members of Australia's victorious ICC Men's Cricket World Cup squad will be rested for the remainder of the ongoing five-match T20I series against India to manage their workload. Following the third T20I in Guwahati, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Josh Inglis and Sean Abbott are scheduled to return to Australia.

Adam Zampa, who finished the tournament with 23 wickets and equalled Muttiah Muralidaran's record for most wickets by a spinner in a single edition, has already flown back after a gruelling World Cup along with Steve Smith.

Among the triumphant group, only Travis Head will stay with the T20I squad in India. Head missed much of Australia's World Cup campaign but made vital contributions in their victories with Player of the Match performances in the semi-final as well as the final.

The side from Down Under do have reinforcements coming in for the T20I series, with Ben McDermott, Josh Philippe, Ben Dwarshuis and Chris Green joining the squad in India.

Australia's updated squad: Matthew Wade (c), Jason Behrendorff, Tim David, Ben Dwarshuis, Nathan Ellis, Chris Green, Aaron Hardie, Travis Head, Ben McDermott, Josh Philippe, Tanveer Sangha, Matt Short, Kane Richardson

Already 2-0 up, India are on the verge of wrapping up the series under the captaincy of Suryakumar Yadav. The first T20I proved to be a nail-biter with India pulling off a win off the penultimate ball in Visakhapatnam, marking their highest successful chase in men's T20Is.

The second match was a high-scoring affair as the hosts recorded their fifth-highest Men's T20I total by posting 235/4 after batting first. Australia too came out all guns blazing but eventually fell short by 44 runs.

Autralia has made a lot of changes and they know that it is just another bilateral series and the player's fitness is more important than the series as the world cup is coming in a few months. Good policy this is from Aussies.

They already Played 2 T20 and hardly made any impacts
 
India have great chance to seal the series… Indian batters are in full form..bowlers also have good performance in last match
 
India have the momentum. They are likely to go up 3-0.
Bro, I don't want this to happen. Not because it's india but for the fact this will turn this series into a dead rubber. You know 3-0 lead would be unassailable.
 
One more good innings by Jaiswal will make Rohit very uncomfortable to even think about t20 opener for next wc.we should test Washi .If wash Is good then we dont need Kuldeep and Jadeja for t20 wc. we can use Washi and Bishnoi in power play and at death overs too.

Don't be so quick to dismiss the likes of Jadeja and kuldeep. They still have much left in the tank. Also believe a part timer like washi can't be a substitute for a specialist like kuldeep.

Even though Kuldeep is the best spinner,t20 needs batting depth .Washi can be a very economical bowler and a good batsmen. Jadeja returns are very less in white ball format.

All the main players are playing . even today they play strongest team from available player's

This is not an important series. A meaningless T20 series where both sides are resting key players. Australia won the tournament that mattered (ODI World Cup).

P.S., I want Aussies to win.
 
Am surprised at he huge crowds not only for this game but the past 2 games as well so soon after the WC loss. Yes these are tier 2 cities that didn't get WC games but still. Just shows t20 is the future..and we just have to accept it
 
High scoring venue. But India should have tried newer guys instead of Arshdeep, Avesh Khan. Missed opportunity. Nobody cares if we lose this one. Atleast would have been a god exposure for youngsters.
 
Not really high scoring by the look. Ball is jagging around like you see in English conditions.
 
Jason played for MUmbai Indians. He would have got the news he is retained by MI for this season. You can see spring in his step.
 
Tom Moody called Jason Behrendorff the best T20 powerplay bowler in the last 10 years.
But he is slow. He depends on swing like Boult. WHen that doesn't happen he gets hammered. He was going close to 10 runs an over for Mumbai Indians in 2023.

He is like Natarajan and Bhuvi. Can be very effective with new ball. But if the ball is not doing much, they can be taken for runs.
 
Gaekwad is an inferior version of Gill. I feel Gill can be slow in the powerplay. But Gaekwad is even slower.

Gaekwad must be considered for ODI team. Not T20's.
 
This is why there is no place for tuk tuk players in t20. Ruturaj sucks all the momentum out
In crunch games or ko games or deciders - you need attacking players who take the game away. And you will lose early wickets due to pressure - key is putting pressure back on opponents but tuk tuk guys like ruturaj klrahul go slow mo play as if it's a minefield and sabotage the innings by making a statpadder 50 and getting a way below par score

On top of it, Even in worst case scenario also, they will not get dismissed until they ruin the momentum

One Tanaji in History postponed his marriage for the battle… and look at now-days players

There was one match where Mayank Agarwal destroyed Behrendoff against new ball as nothing happned for him
 
Again this is what happens with slo mo tuk tuk guts like ruturaj klrahul- ruin the momentum and the other attacking batsman gets out due to slow sr pressure.

It is not like SKY can play any other way. lol I understand that logic other batsmen. Not with SKY. He always takes risk from ball 1. So his failure is solely due to his own shot selection.

Even then if Gaikwad was scoring at a good rate,It will not force other players to get out to run rate pressure.
 
Great hitting by Gaekwad. But this is some serious bad bowlng.

Australia 2nd string attack is seriously poor. The worst part is Starc is old now and Hazle and Cummins are in their 30's too.
 
Travis head in the squad today. Would be a treat to watch if he gets going. Also a great opportunity for exacting revenge for Indians too.

Worst part is India’s C side thrashing them

They seem to be trying out players.

I think they have good backups.
 
What an innings by Gaikwad

I think he scored 110 runs off 35 balls there
 
Maxwell 1 over 30 runs

What a way to ruin someone’s evening
 
Behrendorf is the only good one apart from Starc/Cummins/Haze. The rest are not even club level.

The young kid Sangha is mediocre too.

Are you saying that based on today's game?

Jhye Richardson, Riley Meredith etc.

They have some good upcoming pacers. Pace is never an issue for Australia.
 
Looks like Laxman will be the dull time coach now😡.. The media will be like- laxman took a b string ind team to a thumping victory against aus...and ind will be back with seniors and same outdated tactics come the 2024 t20wc
 
I have a feeling India will bank on this side and just make some changes in the bowling for the T20 World Cup

This is a good enough batting unit to compete at the international level

Both are medicore ,they can perform in one of match here and there .Australia Don't have much quality bowlers apart from first string bowlers
 
Why is Sam Curran in the stands supporting Australia?
