India will be looking to conclude the five-match series with another win as they host Australia in the fifth T20I game at Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday, November 13. India secured a series win after beating Australia by 20 runs in the last game in Raipur and will be looking for another dominant performance.
Rinku Singh’s finishing and impressive performance from spinners helped India dominate the last game. With senior figures rested for this series, Suryakumar-led side has been impressive in their early preparations for next year’s T20 World Cup.
The likes of Shivam Dube and Washington Sundar are expected to get some game time on Sunday having warmed the bench in the first four matches of the series. A much-changed Australian side will be seeking a consolation victory to finish the entertaining series on a high note.
