The Aussies on the other hand, have had a few bad matches in this format. They came into this series after a series loss against South Africa. They have also failed to win this series in the Indian conditions as they lost the first 2 games. This will worry them with the World Cup coming up which will be played on similar tracks. David Warner has been in good touch at the top of the innings but lacks the support needed from the other batters. Sean Abbott also played a good cameo towards the end in the last game but it was not enough to push Australia over the victory mark. Pat Cummins is expected to make a return to the playing 11 in this game along with Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Starc. This is the last ODI game both teams will play ahead of the World Cup and both of them will make sure to get the most out of it. This will surely be an exciting encounter to watch with some of the greats coming into the squads. Stay with us as live action will take center stage shortly. Sit tight as we bring you the toss and team news soon.
India has dominated the Aussies in the first two games of the series and currently leads it by 2-0. We will see the senior players back in the squad for this match. The young pacer, Mukesh Kumar has also been added to the squad recently and he will also hope to get some game time. Shreyas Iyer performed brilliantly in the last match scoring a fine century along with Gill. Suryakumar Yadav also has come back to his form in ODIs and shown that he can adapt to this format as well. It will be good to see the Indian squad back in action with the likes of the skipper, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli back in the squad as well. A victory in this series has already given the hosts, India, the upper hand and they will hope to whitewash Australia and end this series 3-0.
