India and Australia are facing each other for the 3rd and final ODI of the series. The game is being played in Chennai.
Furthermore, talking about the last game at Vizag, then India lost the game by 10 wickets as they had managed to score only 117.
Moreover, Australia chased down the target with great ease in just 11 overs and leveled the series 1-1.
Today’s game is therefore a thriller between these two sides as it will determine who will take the series home.
India’s top and middle-order batters will have to perform their very best today so that they can become a great batting unit by the time of the ODI World Cup.
Australia meanwhile, has a pretty decent batting lineup and has no worries on that front. Moreover, their bowlers are also doing well with Mitchell Starc picking up his 9th fifer in ODIs.
Thus, we will have to wait and see which team takes the trophy today as this is going to be a cracker of a contest.
