India vs Australia 3rd T20I Weather Forecast and Pitch Report: The Men in Blue levelled the three-match T20I series against Australia by winning the second encounter in Nagpur on Friday. Now for the series decider, both India and Australia will head to Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. The third T20I is scheduled to be held on Sunday (25th September 2022).

The 2nd T20I, although curtailed due to the damp surface because of the overnight rain, had every moment of joy for the fans in it. The delay trimmed the match to eight over per side, however, there was no shortage of thrill in the match.

Rohit Sharma won the flip of the coin and decided to bat second. Australia managed to score 90 runs in its quota of eight overs, owing to a scintillating batting from Matthew Wade, who scored 43 runs in 20 deliveries.

Chasing the total, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma wreaked havoc right from the start of the innings. He smashed Josh Hazlewood to two consecutive sixes in the first over of the innings and expressed his intentions right away. The Indian skipper then went on to play captain’s knock and remained unbeaten on 46 runs in 20 deliveries.

Wicketkeeper batter and designated finisher Dinesh Karthik slammed a six and four in the final over to take India over the rope and level the series. India won the match by six wickets.

Now, the third T20I will be a do-or-die fixture for both India and Australia. Here we will take you through India vs Australia 3rd T20I Weather Forecast and Pitch Report.
