In the third and final T20I between India and Australia, Virat Kohli won the toss and have opted to field first. While the Indian skipper made no change to his side, Australian skipper Aaron Finch comes in place of Marcus Stoinis.

The touring Indians have already claimed the series with their six-wicket victory in the second match at the same venue on Sunday.

Kohli who opted to bowl said, "We had a good game last time and for the bowling line-up as well we wanted to be more professional and test ourselves. It's been a really good year for us in terms of T20 cricket if we keep staying ahead of the opposition, and as a group, we want to make sure we keep getting those results and win games of cricket". 

As for Finch, he is coming back after missing our the second clash. He said, "We would have bowled first as well. It's a used wicket and hopefully, we'll bat well tonight. We did see a bit of turn in the last game and expect the spinners to play a key role in the middle overs. 

"Stoinis has got a bit of niggle and it's a long summer ahead and doesn't want to take any chances and blow it up. No balls are something that's killed us over the last few games and we want to control that going forward. Somewhere around 190 is what we are after and you got to be careful as this is a tough ground to defend".

Squads:

Australia (Playing XI): Aaron Finch(c), Matthew Wade(w), Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, D Arcy Short, Moises Henriques, Daniel Sams, Sean Abbott, Mitchell Swepson, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa

India (Playing XI): KL Rahul(w), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli(c), Sanju Samson, Hardik Pandya, Shreyas Iyer, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, T Natarajan, Yuzvendra Chahal.
