India will face off against Australia in the third and final Twenty20 International (T20I) at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Sunday, January 31, 2016, at 14:00 IST. India lost the One-Day International (ODI) series 1-4, but their solitary win came at the SCG where Manish Pandey scored his maiden ODI century in only his third innings to guide India to a win in what was the last over of the series.
India were shoddy in the ODI series with the ball, with Ishant Sharma bowling well and still going at over 6 runs per over. Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Rishi Dhawan were lacklustre as well, but Barinder Sran and Jasprit Bumrah impressed on their respective debuts. India will be hoping the young pacers can continue their impressive start. They will have the far more seasoned campaigner Ashish Nehra returning to mentor them.
Speaking of seasoned campaigners, India have decided to recall two more of their tried and tested players in Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh. Yuvraj has been in good form lately, but has not played an international match since the fateful ICC World T20 2014 final, where his slow innings caused India to reach a sub-par total despite an impressive innings from Virat Kohli at the other end.
The SCG is possibly one of the most historically significant and iconic cricket grounds in the world. The SCG hosts a famous cricketing museum, home to some historic artefacts. The match will also hold special significance given that India won their only ODI of the series here.
