Having won the first of the three-T20I series by 37 runs to take a 1-0 lead, India find themselves ahead of the hosts for the first time on this tour, a position of confidence that they didn't enjoy for the duration of the ODI series.
The 'Men in Blue' would be keen to close the series out early, so that they get a chance to experiment in the last match in Sydney.
However, that will be an after-thought at best, if at all. Right now, the Indian team management would want to keep this turn in fortunes going.
Winning the last ODI in Sydney provided some relief to the beleaguered travellers, and then the win in the previous match in Adelaide has given their last week on tour some impetus.
Hitting the right balance for the playing eleven has been the concern for the Indian team. They tried doing so earlier in the series, bringing in Gurkeerat Mann and Rishi Dhawan, and leaving out the additional spinner.
