AUS vs IND Dream11 Team Prediction | 3rd T20I | India tour of Australia | 8th Dec 2020
After two brilliant performances to seal the T20I series, India will take on Australia in the 3rd and final T20I on Tuesday. In the last T20I, it was the heroics of Hardik Pandya in the end which took India home. On the other hand, Australia wasn’t playing their full strength as a lot of major players missed out the game and Wade captained the team for the first time.
As they enter the 3rd T20I, we might not see Finch here as well. The team is already without the services of David Warner, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and this is certainly a big blow for them. However, Australia does have a lot of players who can still win the matches single-handedly for the team. Let’s go through our Dream11 Team Prediction for the third and final T20I between India and Australia.

IND vs AUS Dream11 Team News:
- Since India have won the series already, we can expect them to test their bench strength and rest a few key players in this match.
- T Natarajan has been too good with the ball and has picked up 5 wickets in T20Is already.
- Washington Sundar has been Kohli’s go-to bowler over the years in the IPL, he is likely to open the bowling here as well.
- Australia might go with Alex Carey here in place of Short as the latter couldn’t find the form in the last two T20I innings.
- In the last match, Matthew Wade led the team from the front with an excellent half-century. He is likely to do well here as well.
- We might see Cameron Green getting a game here as the team will be looking for new combinations.
