India will be looking to make it 2-1 in this encounter while the Aussies will come out all guns blazing with the series win up for grabs.
India will lock horns with Australia in the third and final ODl on the 22nd of March at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chenna. After a very competitive Test series, the two teams battled it out in the first ODI, Wankhade Stadium hosted the first game which turned out to be a low-scoring thriller, where India held their nerve and got over the line. The Australian team clinched the second game and the series is currently poised at 1-1 and this encounter will decide who wins the series. India will be looking to make it 2-1 in this encounter while the Aussies will come out all guns blazing with the series win up for grabs.
Rohit Sharma was back leading the Indian side after missing out on the 1st game due to personal reasons. It will be interesting to see if India will go with one or two spinners, the pitch tends to favour spin bowlers at this venue. Australia on the other hand had a forgettable game in Mumbai but came back brilliantly to thrash India in the 2nd game in Vizag. Mitchell Marsh passed the Indian challenge with flying colours, smashing the Indian bowlers all around the park. Australia has to get their best game out tomorrow and will look to win the series. The Aussies will look to make some changes, we might see Aston Agar replacing Sean Abbott, Nathan Ellis has also been brilliant in the Big Bash League and could retain his place in the team tomorrow.
