India vs Australia 4th T20I Highlights: Spinners Axar Patel and Ravi Bishnoi led the way to ensuring a 20-run win for India after Rinku Singh, Jitesh Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal helped India set up a target of 175 for Australia to chase in Raipur. India scored 174/9 in their 20 overs and then restricted Australia to a score of 154/7. They have thus confirmed victory in the series as well, having taken an unassailable 3-1 lead with one match to go. Matthew Wade won the toss and chose to bowl first. Both sides made a number of changes, four for India and five for Australia. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ruturaj Gaikwad put up a 50-run opening partnership before the former fell off the last ball of the powerplay. India were pegged back with Suryakumar and Shreyas Iyer both falling within a few balls of each other but Rinku Singh led a fightback with a 48-run stand for the fourth wicket with Gaikwad that came in 31 balls. Jitesh Sharma then stayed up with Rinku's strike rate and the pair put up 56 runs fort the fifth wicket off just 32 balls. It was a bit of a collapse for India after that with Ben Dwarshuis and Jason Behrendorff taking two wickets each in the 19th and 20th overs. Rinku couldn't quite stay till the end, falling off the first ball of the last over bowled by Behrendorff on 46 off 29. Deepak Chahar then fell off the third ball and Ravi Bishnoi was run out off the last, thus leaving India's tally at 174/9 in 20 overs....Read More

Travis Head got Australia off to an absolute flier, especially when he smashed a whopping 22 runs off the third over from Deepak Chahar. However, spinners Ravi Bishnoi and Axar Patel pulled things right back for India with a flurry of wickets after the first five overs. While it looked like India might be in trouble after the pair was done with their four overs, pacers Deepak Chahar, Mukesh Kumar and Avesh Khan kept the pressure up and restricted Australia to 154/7. India thus won the match by 20 runs and confirmed victory in the series as well.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: The last international game in Raipur

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: In the ODI played between India and New Zealand in January, the only international game to ever be played at this venue, the grassy pitch led to some tennis-ball bounce and lateral movement which India's pacers exploited to the full. In fact, New Zealand had been reduced to 15/5 at omne point. The big boundaries here is something that spinners can work with today but there really hasn't been enough top level cricket here to say much else.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Another high scorer on the cards?

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: India have conceded truckloads of runs in the death overs in all three T20Is that they have played but so have Australia. The only this indicates really is the fact that the wickets have been batting paradises thus far. Raipur purportedly had the biggest boundaries in Asia in the run up to the only ODI that was played here in January. One can be sure that those ropes would be significantly pushed in for this.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli know each other quite well, to say the least. They have spent years and years as the heart and soul of RCB and their encounters were quite interesting whenever India met South Africa in any format.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Some big changes in store for Australia

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Steve Smith and Adam Zampa flew back home before the third match of the series and now Josh Inglis, Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis have followed suit. Inglis and Maxwell have been especially vital with the bat for Australia at various points in this series. Stoinis may have looked out of touch with the bat but he has been quite integral as a bowler. Australia are hence going to look quite a different side today.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Will Kohli or won't Kohli

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: This series has a bit of a peculiar, low-key feel to it considering it is happening so close to the end of the World Cup. But there is no dearth of drama behind the scenes as far as Indian cricket is concerned. Among the biggest aspects of it is Virat Kohli telling the BCCI that he won't be playing in the white-ball leg of India's upcoming tour of South Africa. In fact, reports state that he has told the board of taking an indefinite break from white-ball international cricket altogether. He is 35 as well and so this begs the question, have we seen the last of Virat Kohli in coloured clothing for India?

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: The Big Show in Guwahati

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: If a bowler concedes 30 runs in an over, that normally would mean a bad day for them regardless of what they do in the rest of the match. But Glenn Maxwell ended up getting a player of the match award in the third T20I. And that is because he then powered the turbo-charged Australian chase of he ended up smashing an unbeaten 104 in 48 balls. He went 6, 4, 4, 4 off the last four balls of the match. He was returning to Australia after that match and he said goodbye India in the most extraordinary fashion.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: As does Shreyas Iyer!

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Set to be part of the squad from the fourth T20I, Shreyas Iyer's return to the already impressive batting line up comes as a big positive. And yet, at the same time, might throw a spanner in the team combinations. The current middle order featuring Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Riku Singh and Axar Patel is doing a good job, and Iyer's return promises to disturb the combination. With Iyer poised to reclaim his spot in the XI, Tilak might unfortunately find himself on the sidelines. However, it's worth noting that if he can replicate the stellar form he displayed at the World Cup, effortlessly launching sixes, it might pose a pleasant selection dilemma for India.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Mukesh Kumar returns!

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: He has played 11 matches for India this far but Mukesh Kumar's absence was felt deeply by India in the last T20I. Still in his early days, Mukesh appeared to be two steps ahead of the opposition's batters, as figures of 0/29 and 1/43 proved in the first two T20Is, but without him, it was almost as if the Indian bowling crumbled. The pace trio of Prasidh Krishna, Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan were rendered ineffective by the Australians, while spinners Ravi Bishnoi and Axar Patel were carted to all parts of the ground. Out due to his wedding, Mukesh's return promises to bolster this still-very-young Indian pace attack.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: No BIG SHOW tonight!

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: In case you haven't been up to date, Glenn Maxwell will not be playing today's T20I against India on the account of being released by the squad. He, along with five more players, has been let go as they were on the road non-stop. They landed in India 12 days before the World Cup, played the biggest tournament for two months, won the Cup and even took part in the first three T20Is. Hence, the likes of Maxwell, Adam Zampa, Marcus Stoinis, Josh Inglis and Steve Smith have been granted a much-needed break, paving the way for youngsters Josh Phillippe, Ben McDermott, Ben Dwarshuis and Chris Green to make some heads turn.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: The story of IND vs AUS so far in this series

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: The first three matches of the ongoing series between IND and AUS have already been so memorable.

And tonight promises to be no different. With both teams fielding a bunch of energetic and promising youngsters, tonight's contest is a sneak-peek of what India and Australia's team combinations could look like in the future – as quickly as the T20 World Cup next year.

As Ravi Shastri says, runs have been flowing thick and fast and if the conditions are expected to stay true, it will continue to rain runs tonight.

In a tournament, where big totals have become a norm, who among India or Australia, will land the latest blow. Will India take the series, or Australia live to fight another day? Stay tuned. Another run-fest awaits.
