Virat Kohli has made fifties in both games, MS Dhoni has got in a couple of big hits and the openers Rohit and Dhawan have been very successful too.

India’s bowling defended 188 in Adelaide and 184 in Melbourne, the latter after Australia had got off to a flying start in the first nine overs.

For Australia, there is no Aaron Finch, and Shane Watson will lead in his absence. They go into this game with a few changes – Khawaja is in for Finch, Cameron Bancroft in for keeper Wade, Travis Head for Faulkner, Boyce for Lyon and Shaun Tait for Hastings.

India have made no changes to their side. One hopes that Yuvraj Singh will get a chance to bat a few overs though, as he hasn’t batted in the first two T20s.

India completed a 3-0 whitewash against Australia on Sunday to jump eight places to the top of the ICC T20 international rankings.

India, with 120 rating points, are placed above 2012 World T20 champions West Indies, who have 118 points. Defending World T20 champions Sri Lanka, who are tied on rating points with West Indies, are placed third on the list. India are holding the top-spot in the Test rankings also.
