Matthew Wade had replaced Alex Carey for the third T20I in England but it looks likely that both wicket-keepers will get a go. Australia likely to play both their spinners in the shortest format, and you’d expect them to stick with that combination, especially after their very eye-catching showing in the final ODI. Mitchell Starc was seen walking around the Manuka Oval without any discomfort late on Thursday evening. Natarajan’s impressive ODI debut should lead to a T20I debut on Friday. You’d also expect Deepak Chahar to start while KL Rahul returns to the opening slot, vacating his spot in the middle for Manish Pandey, who had a good tour of New Zealand. The question remains whether Washington Sundar gets a go but Jadeja’s match-winning exploits in the third ODI might mean the RCB all-rounder waits his turn.

India are coming off a competitive 1-2 loss in the One-Day Internationals against Australia, Under. The Twenty20 Internationals would be a battle for the top spot in the ICC rankings. The series ended in a 1-1 draw during India’s last visit, in 2018-19.
