India captain Harmanpreet Kaur said during the draw that Jemimah Rodrigues had rested to bring in an extra spinner in Rajeshwari Gayakwad, “to hopefully stop the runs”. Gayakwad had played the third T20I, but was then waived in favor of an extra hitter to Harleen Deol in the fourth game.
Tahlia McGrath captains Australia in the absence of Alyssa Healy, who strained her calf beating in the last game. Phoebe Litchfield replaced her on the team, while pacemaker Kim Garth returned for Megan Schutt.
