3 Players To Watch In IND vs AUS 3rd T20I
#1. Rinku Singh
Rinku Singh has been the major talking point among the Indian fans and must be among the selectors too. Of the youngsters in this second-string Indian team, fans are expecting Rinku to be part of India’s squad in next year’s T20 World Cup if he continues to finish games as he’s done this year.
After a magnificent IPL season with KKR, Rinku got his India T20I cap, and his 4 T20I innings read 38 (21), 37* (15), 22* (14), and 31* (9)—that is 128 runs at a jaw-dropping strike rate of 216. Of course, this is just the start of his India career, and this strike rate would come down, but Rinku has shown his prowess and temperament in the finisher’s role, attracting comparisons with MS Dhoni.
#2. Ravi Bishnoi
According to the Three players to watch in 3rd T20I India vs Australia, in the 2nd T20I, Ravi Bishnoi has shown why the selectors have picked him and moved on from Chahal. Bishnoi has bowled faster and used his googly with much more frequency than Chahal does.
As per the 3 Players To Watch In IND vs AUS 3rd T20I, Bishnoi returned with figures of 3/32 in a game where over 400 runs were scored. His wickets were Matthew Short, Tim David, and Josh Inglis. He is another player in this side that could be seen flying to the West Indies for the T20 World Cup.
#3. Steve Smith
As per the 3 Players To Watch In IND vs AUS 3rd T20I, Australia have taken a massive punt on Steve Smith as an opener in T20Is. While Smith’s twin centuries in last season’s BBL as an opener were great to watch, T20 internationals are a different challenge.
In both his knocks as an opener in this series, Smith’s strike rate of 124 is way below what was needed by Australia on these flat pitches. But the Aussie management has given their backing to their experienced player, and it would be interesting to see if he comes off in the 3rd T20I.
