After the match was reduced to eight overs per side, India chose to bowl first. Aaron Finch had given the visitors a strong start before Australia lost a string of wickets to the gracious Axar Patel and Jasprit Bumrah. Australia appeared to be in trouble, but Wade’s 20-ball 43 brought Australia to a strong total. Bumrah is back in the playing XI, replacing Umesh Yadav. Rishabh Pant is also back while Bhuvneshwar Kumar is sitting outside. Australia is also making some changes as Sean Abbott and Daniel Sams replace Nathan Ellis and Josh Inglis.
