IND vs AUS 3rd ODI: Strongest Playing11 for India & Australia: Australia trounced team India in the second ODI in Vishakhapatnam to make a comeback in the three-match ODI series after going down in the first encounter in Mumbai. With the win, Australia levelled the series 1-1 and kept the ODI leg alive. The two sides will now face each other for one final time in Chennai for the series decider on 22nd March 2023.
Although the first two ODIs between IND and AUS have been low-scoring ones, there has been no shortage of entertainment for the fans. The first ODI saw the domination of Indian pacers followed by some classy innings from wicketkeeper batter KL Rahul and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja.
The second assignment in Vishakhapatnam witnessed the heroics of Mitchell Starc who blew away the Indian top order with his swinging abilities. Starc scalped five wickets in the IND vs AUS 2nd ODI and helped Australia dismiss India at a scanty total of 117 runs.
Now, the stage is all fired-up for a fitting series decider at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The three-match ODI series is at stake for both teams. While Australia would try to end their India tour on a happy note, India will be eying a solid end to the Australia tour by winning the ODI series as well. India has already bagged the 4-match Test series against Australia.
This article will lead you through IND vs AUS 3rd ODI: Strongest Playing11 for India & Australia, Possible Changes in the 3rd One Day International (ODI) in Chennai.
IND vs AUS 3rd ODI Strongest Playing11 for India
India’s Playing11: Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav/Sanju Samson, KL Rahul (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel/Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammad Shami, Mohammad Siraj.
Suryakumar Yadav hasn’t been able to replicate his T20I brilliance in the longer formats of cricket. His inclusion in the ODIs was touted as the game-changer move for India, but so far nothing has gone the way of the World’s Top T20I Batter. He can be replaced with Sanju Samson in the IND vs AUS 3rd ODI. However, chances of that being true are quite slim as Sanju Samson was earlier reported to be at the NCA, undergoing his rehabilitation.
IND vs AUS 3rd ODI Strongest Playing11 for Australia
Australia’s Playing11: Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh, Steven Smith(c), Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey(w), Cameron Green, Glenn Maxwell/Nathan Ellis, Marcus Stoinis, Sean Abbott, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa
Considering the fact that Australia won the previous game against India, they may not want to play with the winning combination. The solitary change could be in the form of all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, who missed out on the 2nd IND vs AUS ODI as he was a bit sore.
