Indian cricket team will seek a series win when they clash against Australia in the third T20I match at Guwahati's Barsapara Cricket Stadium on Tuesday, November 28. Suryakumar Yadav-led Indian side recorded an easy 44-run win in the second game with an impressive all-round performance to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series at home.
Australia recorded a dominant win against India in their only T20I match played at this venue in 2017. But India recorded 237 runs against South Africa in the last T20I match played here and fans can witness another run-fest in the upcoming match on Tuesday.
The hosts are expected to feature the same team and will not look to tinker with a winning combination. But with a series at stake, Australia are likely to field a strong playing eleven with a possible inclusion of Cricket World Cup 2023 final hero Travis Head.
