No chance of any rain during the final T20I and fans will once again witness an uninterrupted contest.
Normally, the track at SCG is a beauty to bat on and the captain winning the toss will be looking to put runs on the board. In the second out the pitch might assist spinners and shot-making can become a little more challenging as the game progresses.

Around 170- 180 runs.

Australia vs India – Top Fantasy Picks
KL Rahul: Runs just keeps flowing for KL Rahul in T20 cricket and should be an automatic selection in your fantasy squad. He stroked a fine half-century in the T20I series and will be again a vital cog for team India.
T. Natarajan: The new pace sensation of team India has to be a part of your fantasy XI. Natarajan was sensational in the last match and will be looking to end the Australian tour on a big high.
Glenn Maxwell: The destructive Glenn Maxwell should also be one of the first picks in your team. He looked in ominous form in the ODI series and will be eager to bounce back after missing out in the first T20I.
Matthew Wade: The stand-in captain of Australia looked in ominous form in the second T20I. Wade at the top of the order is a game-changer as he can play a big knock.
