Australia managed to win the third ODI match against India after an excellent batting performance. Virat Kohli made yet another ODI hundred but for a change was not able to lead his side to victory in a stiff chase. Australia built on the positives that have been visible during this ODI series and was finally able to get on the board after two close losses.
Australia could have easily been 2-1 or even 3-0 ahead in this series and that is something that India will be aware of. The lack of batting form from their openers is becoming a concern ahead of the ICC World Cup 2019. MS Dhoni has been rested for the last two matches so someone like Rishab Pant is going to come into the side as another untested player as well.
The series is still alive at 2-1 and there is everything to play for as the teams head to Mohali.
A poor bowling performance followed by an even worse batting performance meant that India was completely outplayed by Australia in the third ODI. The new ball bowlers for India have been a bit undercooked. Jasprit Bumrah has bowled well without too much reward while Mohammad Shami was unable to get the wickets that he has been getting in the previous games.
Kuldeep Yadav picked up three wickets again and continued to be the highest wicket-taker for the entire series. We really think India is missing a trick by not playing Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav in the same side.
The uncertainty in the batting has meant that India is trying to keep an all-round option at number 7. Ravindra Jadeja is not a good enough batsman, although, he can definitely bat a bit. Similarly, Vijay Shankar is an all-rounder that cannot be relied upon to bowl and so is playing a batsman predominantly.
India may be better of by bringing in a genuine batsman for Vijay Shankar and Chahal in place of Jadeja.
MS Dhoni has been rested for the upcoming two matches and that means that Rishab Pant will get a go. Pant has the potential to be an important part of India’s upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 campaign. He has the power that India is looking for in the middle order but needs to prove his ability in ODI cricket.
Bhuvaneshwar Kumar is back in the squad but was not picked for the third ODI. This could mean Kumar continues to miss out in the next ODI as well although we would like to see him in place of one of the fast bowlers as well.
India’s biggest problem has been the lack of runs from Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan. India has not had to face this problem since a very long time and runs from the top-3 has been the basis of its sustained success in ODI cricket. We think that both Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are too good to keep missing out.
Expect a much stronger batting performance from India in the upcoming match.
Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, V Kohli, Lokesh Rahul, RR Pant, Kedar Jadhav, V Shankar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, YS Chahal, JJ Bumrah.
Aaron Finch returned to form with an aggressive 93, Usman Khawaja scored his first century, and most of the following batsmen scored runs as well. The pitch was a bit better to bat on than what we have seen in the first two matches but we still believe Australia ended up getting 20-30 runs over par.
Aaron Finch broke a streak of 21 international matches without a fifty and very nearly got a century. There is no doubting the talent of Aaron Finch but the Aussie selectors would have breathed a huge sigh of relief.
Is Usman Khawaja’s first century going to be enough for him to keep his spot for ICC World Cup 2019? We will have to wait and see but he is certainly becoming a very reliable batsman in ODI cricket as well.
We were very pleased to see Glenn Maxwell come up the order in this last match. Australia sensed an opportunity to lay down the hammer against the Indian spinners and went for it. Maxwell ended up scoring 47 runs off 31 balls with three sixes and was run out off a brilliant piece of fielding.
Shaun Marsh was unable to get any runs in the third ODI but he is someone we would keep an eye on for the upcoming game. Marsh has been in good form in ODI cricket and thrives in Indian conditions. He has also played for the IPL franchise based out of Mohali for the better part of a decade so is well versed with the conditions.
Pat Cummins, Jhye Richardson, and Adam Zampa picked up three wickets each to crush the Indian challenge. The only time that Australia looked a little rattled was when Virat Kohli started to accelerate and bring the required run-rate down. Not being able to keep Kohli quiet is hardly a crime, though, and the Australians would not be too worried about that.
The current plan of finding ten overs from Stoinis and Maxwell is working in India but is going to be very risky on better batting pitches expected at the ICC World Cup 2019.
Nathan Lyon bowled a tight line to hold the run scoring down and is making a solid case to be included in Australia’s World Cup 2019 squad as the second spinner.
Aaron Finch, Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell, AJ Turner, Alex Carey, Jhye Richardson, Pat Cummins, Jason Behrendorff, Adam Zampa.
The side winning the toss is likely to want to field first

The fourth ODI between India and Australia is going to be played at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali. There is no rain forecast for Mohali and we should continue to get uninterrupted cricket this series.
The pitch at Mohali has traditionally been a bit bouncy and helpful to the fast bowlers. In recent times, some of the surfaces prepared at the Mohali Stadium have been slower and offered more help the spinners. We think this upcoming match will have a good batting surface without the kind of bounce we associate with this venue.
Australia has been the better side this series in our opinion even though they are trailing India in the series. Their fast bowlers have been very impressive and have almost always been able to pick up wickets up front. India is going to make a few changes and can be expected to come back strongly. A change in combination, though, also opens up a chance for another upset.
We think Australia could easily end up evening the series in this match.
Back Australia to win.
