Preview :

India vs Australia, 3rd ODI – Live Cricket Score
  • Australia challenged India in the first two ODIs, but they just couldn’t close those matches out. In Hyderabad, the tourists had reduced India to 99 for 4 in a fairly tricky chase of 237 on a two-paced pitch, but then they couldn’t find a way past MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav.
  • Then, in Nagpur, they were in the hunt when Peter Handscomb was marshalling Australia’s chase of 251, but Marcus Stoinis came up short in the end, despite seeing off a masterful spell from Jasprit Bumrah.
  • While Australia will be buoyed by the return of Aaron Finch to form, they need to rotate the strike more frequently against spin in the middle overs. Shaun Marsh, Australia’s best ODI batsman in the past year, and Handscomb will be crucial in this regard.
  • At the other end, India, having dug deep into their reserves, will look for more of the same to seal the series in Ranchi. They have received another major boost, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar returning to the roster after being rested for the first two ODIs.
  • If India gets the series win out of the way, they might have some extra time to test out KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant ahead of the World Cup. What about Shikhar Dhawan? And what about Ambati Rayudu blowing hot and cold? Does Vijay Shankar have the game to bat at No.4? India has three ODIs to answer these questions.
  • After the five ODIs in India, Australia head to the UAE for another five-match series, but the time’s running out for them as well.

When:  India vs Australia, 3rd ODI, March 8, 2019, 1:30 PM

Where: JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi

What to expect:

  • Weather-wise, the north of India can be a little less taxing on the cricketers at this time of the year, which Bhuvneshwar Kumar reckoned was the best to play cricket in.
  • A sunny day is up ahead with gentle maximum temperatures of 26, as opposed to the ones in the early 30s in the previous two venues.
  • The teams can anticipate assistance for the spin – based on past record. India’s last two fixtures at this venue have come against Australia – a win in a rain-truncated T20I in October 2017 and a Pujara-Smith-Maxwell dominated drawn Test in March same year.

Team News:

India:

  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar spent the maximum time bowling during an optional nets session on Thursday (March 7) and pretty much confirmed his inclusion in the press conference that followed.
  • Mohammed Shami is likely to make way. Rishabh Pant too was out to train on the eve of the game, combining his keeping drills with batting that would eventually end with a round of six-hitting that he aced.

Australia: 

  • Shaun Marsh’s return may not have been in line with Australia’s expectation, but he’s been a form player in the 50-overs format and also allows the visitors to play Marcus Stoinis in the middle-order, from where he can help the side finish better.
  • Australia will continue to closely monitor Nathan Lyon’s white-ball fortunes as he bids to make it to England for the World Cup.
