There is going to be a clash in the last and decisive match of the three-match series between India and Australia. At present, the series between the two teams is tied at 1-1. Team India made a great start by winning the first ODI. But in the very next match, the Australian team not only made a strong comeback, but India had to face its most embarrassing defeat in its own home. If Team India wants to win the series, then its batsmen will have to perform as expected in the last ODI.
India’s top order has disappointed badly in both the matches played so far. In both the matches, the opening order batsmen have failed to get a good start. Despite being in good form, Virat Kohli has not been able to play any big innings. Suryakumar Yadav has proved to be the biggest flop of this series. Suryakumar’s account did not open in both the matches. If Suryakumar Yadav is unable to score runs in this match as well, then it may be very difficult for him to survive in the ODI format.
It is highly unlikely that Team India will change their bowling attack for the last ODI. Chepauk’s pitch is helpful for spinners. That’s why once again captain Rohit Sharma can take the field with three spin bowlers. Apart from the two main fast bowlers, Hardik Pandya will also be seen bowling medium pace.
The Australian team can also take the field without any change in their playing 11. David Warner is not fully fit and it is almost certain that he will be out of this match. Apart from this, there is no possibility of any change in Australia’s bowling attack. The command of Australian bowling will once again be in the hands of Starc.
