Toss: India opt to bowl vs Australia
Harmanpreet Kaur won a second straight toss as India chose to bowl in the third T20I at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. The hosts made one change, bringing in left-arm fingerspinner Rajeshwari Gayakwad in place of seamer Meghna Singh, in their quest for a 2-1 series lead.
Australia, meanwhile, made three changes, swapping out Phoebe Litchfield, Heather Graham and Kim Garth for Grace Harris, Nicola Carey and Darcie Brown.
Legspinner Amanda-Jade Wellington, who had originally been omitted from the squad and was later called up to the squad as an injury replacement for Jess Jonassen, has to wait further for game time in India.
The five-match series is currently locked 1-1 after India won a Super-Over thriller at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Sunday.
