India and Australia are set to clash in the 4th T20I in Raipur, followed by the final T20I in Bengaluru on December 3. Currently leading the series 2-1, Suryakumar Yadav‘s side faced a setback in the third game, marked by Glenn Maxwell‘s extraordinary innings that led to a five-wicket loss, despite India posting a score exceeding 200. While India have displayed commendable batting, breaching the 200-run mark in all three games, concerns linger over their bowling performance.
As the series reaches a crucial stage, India contemplates strategic changes. Shreyas Iyer, in outstanding form from the recently concluded ODI World Cup 2023, returned for the final two games, adding experience to the side. All-rounder Deepak Chahar has also been added, aiming to strengthen the team’s versatility. The Men in Blue will aim to seal the series in Raipur, emphasizing the need for a collective effort and tactical adjustments.

India’s most potent playing eleven for the final two T20Is against Australia:
Energetic opening pair
Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ruturaj Gaikwad form a dynamic opening pair, combining flair and consistency. Jaiswal, known for his aggressive approach, can provide a quick start, while Gaikwad’s solid technique adds stability. Their partnership sets the tone for India’s innings, capable of unsettling the opposition’s bowling attack early on.
Robust middle order
The middle order comprises power hitters and skilled batters, ensuring depth and adaptability. Ishan Kishan, an explosive left-hander, brings aggressiveness to the middle overs. Shreyas Iyer, fresh from a stellar CWC 2023, provides experience and stability. Suryakumar’s ability to innovate and Rinku Singh‘s attacking style make this middle order a formidable force, capable of handling various match situations.
Washington Sundar and Chahar contribute to the team’s balance as versatile all-rounders. Sundar, an effective off-spinner, adds depth to the bowling attack and can chip in with crucial runs. While, Chahar, known for his swing bowling and aggressive lower-order batting, offers flexibility in both departments. Their all-round skills make them valuable assets in the T20 format.
Strong bowling attack
Ravi Bishnoi, a promising leg-spinner, leads the spin department with his variations and wicket-taking ability. Arshdeep Singh, a left-arm seamer, brings variety to the pace attack with his swing and accuracy. Avesh Khan, a fast and skillful bowler, adds potency to the bowling attack. This trio forms a formidable combination, capable of containing the opposition and taking crucial wickets.
