India and Australia will face off in the fifth match of the five-match T20I series at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, India, on Sunday, December 3. The match starts at 7:00 PM IST. In the concluding T20I, Team India will endeavour to prolong their victorious streak, seeking a triumphant conclusion before the South Africa T20I series commences on December 10. Despite the record of not beating Australia at this venue in the shortest format, Suryakumar Yadav and Co. will be determined to alter that bit of history in the upcoming fixture.
On the other hand, Australia faced a comprehensive defeat in the fourth T20I. However, the relatively inexperienced Australian side will look to make a statement on Sunday and depart the Indian shores on a positive note.
