The mighty South African are planning to give yet another blow to Aussies in the T20 series in Sydney. They look fired up to become victorious and take their revenge of ODI series from Australia by clean sweeping the series after winning the last match at lovely SCG.
Lots of Cricket is coming for both teams in the future in all formats. February / March is going to be the busy season for both teams. Just before the world cup, they are having a good practice against each other.
This is a great chance for India to play against the world champions to practice well for the world cup.Austlians are also going to play against New Zealand in February just before the world cup. The two teams are ready, the expected teams for the last game are:
Finch (Captain), David Warner, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Shaun Marsh, James Faulkner, Matthew Wade (Wicket Keeper), John Hastings, Kane Richardson, Nathan Lyon, Shaun Tait, Scott Boland, Cameron Boyce, Chris Lynn, Shane Watson, Travis Head, Andrew Tye.
The second game at the Magnificent MCG was a one sided one. The batting order of Kangaroos could never deliver something they were supposed to against the Indian bowlers. MS Dhoni will who is also the leader of IPL team for the IPL 2016. The big guy is determined to play fighting cricket near the twilight of his career.
The Australia’s Board of Directors have confirmed and approved the appointment of Shane Watson as the Captain in the third T20.All round skills of Shane Watson justify his place as a captain. Finch always looked good in his running between the wickets.
But his left hamstring was damaged according to the doctors during the 2nd T20 match on Friday. The situation is tough already for Australians as they are 2 down in the series. The appointment of new captain was not easy and Shane will have to be determined to do well.
The Australian Cricket Board and the players have full faith on Shane’s ability to lead them. Things will be tough against India. Usman Khawaja has been added as a specialist batsman to fill the gap of experienced Finch.
Of course with great performances in BBL, Usman looks like a sight for sour eyes at this moment. Shane Watson is the second most experienced player after David Warner as well. It is indeed a privilege for his to lead the Australian side for the first time in this short format of the game.
2 years back Watson had already got the chance to lead Australia in the Test matches as well. Watson is more known as a wicket taking bowler at the age of 34. The All rounder has a good ability to bat as well with 1191 runs to his credit in T20s.
