A downpour at Melbourne meant that India’s seven consecutive T20I series win has finally came to an end. Australian side who encountered a collapse posted a score of 132 in the penultimate over of the game. Though there were chances for a 5-over chase, the conditions didn’t actually aid.

Billy Stanlake, fondly called big Billy wasn’t a part of the game yesterday as he hurt his ankle in the nets prior to the game. This forced Finch to include Nathan Coulter-Nile whose knock really helped the kangaroos post a considerable total on the board. Now, Cricket Australia has announced that veteran Mitchell Starc is all set to replace Stanlake for the final game at Sydney.

It is to be noted that Mitchell Starc has been away from shorter formats of the game for some time now due to his inconsistency in fitness. Tests have always been his area of interest and he always stored to give his best for the team. This inclusion comes as a major boost for the side as they are looking to end the series on a high note by clinching it 2-0.

Australia has lost the recently concluded T20I’s against Pakistan and Southafrica. This move has been made by the board in a hope to change their fortunes. So can Starc be the trump card for the Aussies tomorrow?
