Australia v India - Game 3

After taking an unassailable 3-0 lead in the 6 match ODI series, the Indian cricket team now travel to Johannesburg to look to make it 4-0 and win the series.

However, they will have their task cut out with AB de Villiers making a return to the South African side, which could turn their fortunes around.

Virat Kohli and his men have been unstoppable in the series so far and will look to put up a similar performance in the 4th ODI as they did in the first 3 ODIs.

Let's take a look at the predicted XI:

Openers:

Rohit Sharma

The 30-year-old has been in poor form since the beginning of the tour and has not had anything to show for, so far.

He got off to a decent start in the first two ODIs but was unable to convert those starts into a big score. He looked completely out of sorts in the previous ODI as he was dismissed for a duck to Kagiso Rabada in the first over of the game.

He will look to put his poor form behind him and help India put the series to bed in the 4th ODI.

Shikhar Dhawan

Australia v India - Game 5

Despite having quite an inconsistent career with the Indian cricket team, Shikhar Dhawan has always performed whenever it has mattered the most.

He has had a great series so far with the bat and has looked extremely confident against the South African bowling attack.

His dismissal in the first ODI was quite unfortunate, but he made up with consecutive half-centuries in the 2nd and 3rd ODI. He will look to better his performance in the 4th ODI and get to the century mark.
