Australia v India - Game 3

The Indian cricket team sealed the series in style as they defeated South Africa by 73 runs in the fifth ODI to take a 4-1 lead in the six match series.

They will look to further assert their dominance in the final ODI against the Proteas which will take place on February 16 in Centurion.

Having already won the series, we could expect a few changes in the side.

Here is India's predicted XI for the final ODI:

Openers:

Rohit Sharma:

After an extremely poor outing in the first 4 ODIs, Rohit Sharma finally made a mark for himself in the fifth ODI. He scored a match-winning century which helped India take clinch the series 4-1.

Despite being the man responsible for running both Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane out, Rohit made up for the mistakes by doing what he does best.

He will look to end the series on a high and silece all his critics.

Shikhar Dhawan:

Australia v India - Game 5

The 32-year-old leftie has been one of the standout batsmen in this particular series. He has given India the perfect start in every match and has made up for his partner's failure at the other end.

With one century and two half-centuries to his name, he is the second highest run-getter in the series so far.
