India showed just why it is regarded as the best ODI team in the world alongside England in the previous game. Under pressure, the Indian batting came hard at the Australians and then the bowlers executed their yorkers brilliantly at the death.
The Australians had appeared invincible after the drubbing they handed to India in Mumbai but clearly have a few weaknesses of their own. The dependence on David Warner at the top of the order is clear to see and we could see a couple of changes for the match in Bengaluru.
India and Australia play hard cricket whatever be the occasion and so they don’t need the added motivation of a series-deciding match. Now that they have it, though, expect the intensity to rise a couple of notches higher.
India vs Australia 3rd ODI 2020 is going to be played at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru on the 19th of January 2020.
India will travel to Bengaluru with a lot of confidence and the belief that they may have found the answer to some difficult questions. Virat Kohli followed through on his pre-match comments and came back up at number three, which should really settle the issue for a long time to come.
Shikhar Dhawan continued his brilliant form with 96 but got struck in the ribs and did not field. His availability, as well as that of Rohit Sharma’s, is going to be assessed on the day of the match. If for some reason, either of these batsmen cannot play then Lokesh Rahul will move back up the order.
India also needs to decide whether to continue with Manish Pandey in the side or draft in Rishab Pant if he is fit. We have a feeling that Pant will be given time to recover fully with an important tour to New Zealand in just a few days.
India’s batting showed some known strengths but seemed to founder at the end before being rescued by KL Rahul. The pressure on Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey to not let such things happen frequently is going to rise and both of them must raise their personal batting standards.
The bowlers had a difficult task in the second match on a fat pitch but responded pretty well. Jasprit Bumrah was remarkably better, Mohammad Shami cleaned up the tail, while Navdeep Saini executed his death bowling skills perfectly as well. Kuldeep Yadav picked up crucial wickets in the middle and turned the game around.
All of these bowlers have another very tough task at the high-scoring M.Chinnaswamy since the Australians are going to come hard at them from the very start.
Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, V Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Lokesh Rahul, Manish Pandey, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, NA Saini, Kuldeep Yadav, JJ Bumrah.
Australia’s bowlers were unable to stop the Indian batsmen in the second match and chasing down 341 was always going to be tough. Australia did put in a very decent effort, though, and we don’t think they were very far from where they needed to be.
Mitchell Starc suffered one of his worst matches in ODI cricket and Kane Richardson was very expensive too. Josh Hazelwood played a big role for his BBL side just before leaving for India and could be drafted in for Richardson.
Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa continue to be the most effective bowlers for Australia but Ashton Agar seems like an obvious weak link. Australia could think about strengthening its batting with the addition of Darcy Short and try and to get ten overs out from him and Labuschagne combined.
Australia’s batting seems a bit short on power in the middle order with Agar batting at number seven. Warner, Finch, Smith, and Labuschagne are in excellent form but there is a question mark over Carey, Turner, and Agar.
Bengaluru throws up some really high-scoring matches where contributions from the lower-order are essential and so Australia may be at a bit of disadvantage there. The lower-middle order may also need to be a bit more inventive against the Indian fast bowlers who have been nailing their yorkers with regularity.
David Warner, Aaron Finch, Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey, AJ Turner, Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, JR Hazlewood, Adam Zampa.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. Some amount of dew is seen during the second inning and can make batting easier. Winning the toss should be seen as a big advantage even though the stats do not agree.

The weather in Bengaluru is predicted to be a bit cloudy but free of rain for match day. There has been some rain around and that could affect the outfield a little. Overall, M.Chinnaswamy has started to resemble the batting paradise it was a couple of seasons ago. The pitch became very helpful to the spinners after being re-laid and seems to be settling in now.
Teams prefer to chase here because defending totals can be tricky on its small dimensions but there is no statistical advantage to batting first or chasing.
A total of about 320 will be the least that teams aim for batting first.

India has come back strongly in the ODI series and is going to be tough to stop. Most of its batsmen are in form and the bowling is performing brilliantly as well. Injury concerns to Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are hanging over this Indian side, though, and we advise punters to get clarity on their availability before placing bets.
Australia is not going to go down without fighting and has plenty of firepower of its own. Its batting is in great touch too and it has a world-class bowling attack. There are fine margins deciding the difference between the two sides and it may come down to a familiarity with the conditions.
Bet on India to win.
Our Favorite Bets
Kohli and Smith Both to Score 50+ Runs Each: Yes ($5.50)
Betway offers a boost on certain bets and we think this one is a great one to take advantage of. Both Kohli and Smith are in good form with 78 and 98 to their names in the previous match. Bengaluru is expected to be a great batting surface with plenty of runs once again. The returns on this bet make it an excellent proposition.
To Hit A Six
David Warner ($1.80)
KL Rahul ($2.00)
Steven Smith ($2.50)
Bengaluru is at a high altitude where the ball seems to fly a bit further with ease. The ground is also very small in size and the pitch is one where the ball comes on to the bat nicely. There are going to be plenty of sixes to be hit so take advantage.
