India vs Australia Live Score Updates, 3rd T20: IND vs AUS, Suryakumar Yadav-led India will look to seal the five-match series with a win in the crucial T20I in Guwahati.
The Men in Blue have looked in exquisite touch in the two T20 encounters so far, with the Indian batsmen following in the footsteps of their skipper, scoring over 200 runs in both matches. Meanwhile, India’s bowlers like Arshdeep Singh, Mukesh Kumar, Ravi Bishnoi and the rest will be looking to contribute more to ease the pressure on the batsmen, who are already stretched thin in the absence of bowling all-rounder Hardik Pandya.
Suryakumar Yadav, who is captaining the side for the first time in this T20 series, is yet to taste defeat and in his maiden series as skipper, SKY will be looking to make it memorable by inflicting a stunning series defeat on the Kangaroos after the ODI World Cup.
Ahead of Tuesday’s T20 clash, Australia will be without the services of veteran opener Steve Smith and wrist-spinner Adam Zampa. Meanwhile, a host of other Australian players, including Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis, will be heading home on Wednesday, with Cricket Australia already calling in replacements.
Australia, who have looked exhausted after a prolonged stay in India, will be looking to improve in all departments to stay in contention in this series, which has taken on added significance with the T20 World Cup next year on the horizon.

Matthew Wade (c), Jason Behrendorff, Tim David, Ben Dwarshuis, Nathan Ellis, Chris Green, Aaron Hardie, Travis Head, Ben McDermott, Josh Philippe, Tanveer Sangha, Matt Short, Kane Richardson
