Toss India Choose to bowl Vs Australia
In the fourth T20I at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, India continued Harmanpreet Kaur’s delightful toss-winning performance for the third time in a row as India opted to bowl.
The hosts made just one change from their last game, replacing Rajeshwari Gyakwad with Harleen Deol. The Indian skipper thought it was better to chase in the night games, and with some grass on the surface, he felt the seamers would have a role to play in playing early.
Australia also made a change to their team with Nicola Carey replacing Heather Graham. Australia captain Alyssa Healy said she was not too worried about losing the toss, insisting that batting first did her job in the third ODI.
Australia have taken a 2-1 lead in the five-match series after another strong performance in the third T20I, which they won by 21 runs on Wednesday. On the other hand, India will want to retain the series.
