India vs Australia 2019, 3rd ODI: Match details & Venue stats
After winning two ODIs on the trot, India are set to host Australia for the third ODI at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi. The hosts must be eyeing to seal the series heading into the third match while the Australian team will be hoping to bounce back with a win.
We can expect another thrilling encounter between two juggernauts in the modern-day cricket. While Australia found themselves battered and bruised after the recent defeat, the Blue Brigade is flying high ahead of the ICC World Cup.
The Indian Team has been in sensational form this year under the leadership of Virat Kohli. They have only lost a couple of games in their ten ODIs played in 2019. With the ICC World Cup in sight, the hosts will be determined to make the most of this home series.
Team India won a close game in Nagpur courtesy some brilliant bowling performance by their bowlers. Kohli was declared the Player of the Match for his sensational 40th ODI century. Having won the first two games, India would be eyeing to wrap up the series in the upcoming game.
Australia, on the other hand, will be disappointed with their sluggish performance in the first two ODIs. The Kangaroos perished under pressure as they lost two close games against the second-ranked side in the ICC ODI rankings.
After a steady inning in the second ODI, Aaron Finch would be hoping to lead his team by example in this do-or-die match. The reigning world champions have to tick many boxes if they want to defend their title in the upcoming World Cup.
