Cricket Live Score, India vs Australia 3rd ODI: India - 294/5 (47.5 Overs) | Australia - 293/6 (50 Overs)After taking a healthy 2-0 lead in the ongoing five-match ODI series, India will lock horns against Australia in the third ODI at Holkar Stadium, Indore. Amidst concerns of rain playing a spoilsport in the third ODI, the men in blue are brimming with confidence and will look to seal the series against the world champions on Sunday. Whereas, Kangaroos are in a must-win situation and will be eager to keep the series alive with a win tomorrow. Australia's topmost priority will be to figure out a way to tackle India’s spin twins - Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal. Also, new ball bowlers - Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah have made the visitors top-order look ordinary. (LIVE UPDATES | SCORECARD)
Australia's plight could easily be gauged from the fact that eight of their batsmen could not touch double-digit scores in Chennai, while only four of them could score more than 10 runs in Kolkata. India's top order floundered in the series-opener, the middle order squirmed in Kolkata, but it's the bowlers who stepped up to the occasion and won the match for the hosts. Rohit Sharma, Kedar Jadhav and Manish Pandey have not made any contribution to the team's cause so far and to keep their places they have to do something worthwhile.
The selectors have named the squad only for the first three ODIs so it's time that Pandey, who had a decent run during India A's tour of South Africa, and Jadhav come up with something special. Considering that the team management is looking to identify the number four and five positions for the 2019 World Cup in England, Pandey at number four so far has failed to impress.
For Australia, the return of explosive batsman Aaron Finch should come as a soothing balm for a troubled middle-order that has lacked both depth and confidence to face Kuldeep and Chahal. All-rounder Marcus Stoinis has contributed wonderfully well with both bat and ball and showed great calm of playing spin that others would do well to follow.
