The Indian skipper, Suryakumar Yadav says that he would have loved to bowl first but chuckles that as long as they lose the toss and win the match, he is happy to bat first. Adds that they now have another opportunity to play an international game in front of a stellar crowd, so, the team should go out and express themselves. Adds that they have delivered with the bat and they just need to have belief in themselves. Informs that Arshdeep Singh comes in for Deepak Chahar who has flown home for a medical emergency.
Matthew Wade, the captain of Australia says that they will bowl first. Adds that the wicket looks a bit tacky and with some rain around is the reason they are going to chase. Tells that they are excited to get another chance here and with the World Cup guys going home, it is a great opportunity for the youngsters to make a mark. Mentions this gives the selectors to have a look at some players and exciting times are ahead. Informs they have made one change as Nathan Ellis comes in for Chris Green.
Australia (Playing XI) – Travis Head, Josh Philippe, Ben McDermott, Aaron Hardie, Tim David, Matthew Short, Matthew Wade (C/WK), Ben Dwarshuis, Nathan Ellis (In for Chris Green), Jason Behrendorff, Tanveer Sangha.
India (Playing XI) – Ruturaj Gaikwad, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Suryakumar Yadav (C), Shreyas Iyer, Rinku Singh, Jitesh Sharma (WK), Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh (In for Deepak Chahar), Avesh Khan, Mukesh Kumar.
TOSS – Australia have won the toss and they will BOWL first.
Jitesh Sharma is down for a chat. He says that the message from the coach was very clear and it was his first game but once he saw the off-spinner, he just thought to go all out. Adds that it is all about your belief and if your process is correct, you can showcase your talent here and the key is to focus on the ball and not who is bowling. Mentions that the credit for his success goes to one of his coaches who got him into the middle order and he worked on that decision.
Australia on the other hand have been fairly patchy but that has been mostly due to players coming in and going away for just a game or two. The young guns along with a few experienced personnel have something to prove and they will look to go home with a big win here. Will the Aussies be able to do so? Or will India overpower them again? We shall find out. Toss and team news in a bit.
India have a good mixture of players from the Indian T20 League and most of them already have decent international experience under their belt. Their top order has fired throughout the series and the bowling also came together in the previous game. Suryakumar Yadav and co will look to finish the series with yet another win and we can expect a few changes in the playing XI as well as they have a pretty stacked bench as well.
Hello and welcome one and all to our coverage of the fifth and final T20I between India and Australia from Bengaluru. The hosts have sealed the series 3-1 but with just 6 or so months left for the 2024 T20 World Cup, youngsters from both sides will look to put on an impressive show. There is a bit of an inclement weather forecasted and given the overcast conditions, we might see a pause or two in play.
