T&Cs apply, 18+
This is the 3rd ODI from the series which will be played at Manuka Oval on 2nd December. This D/N match will be crucial for team India since they have lost both the games of the series already.
Indian bowlers were not in form at all in both previous matches. They were not able to take any single wicket in the 1st powerplay. Similarly in the 2nd ODI, at death overs, they have conceded more runs than in the 1st ODI. They will be searching for their forms in the last match of the series.
On the other side, Australia have been in great form during the first 2 matches and they are looking to continue that momentum in this 3rd match also. Due to injury, David Warner will not be a part of this last game, so there will be a new opening combination for them and Pat Cummins also rested for the rest of the tournament, so there will be a new combination in the bowling unit also.

Australia have shown brilliant teamwork at Sydney in the first 2 ODIs. They completely outplayed team India in all the fields. Australia’s opening pair is looking very strong and they have scored a hundred runs partnerships in both games. They played consistently but David Warner will not be going to play this last match of the series due to injury. D’arcy Short replaces him in the ODI squad and may open an inning in the last match of the series.
David Warner scored two fifties in two innings along with Aron Finch who scored a hundred(114) in the 1st match and fifty(60) in the 2nd match also. In the middle order, Steve Smith once again played a superb knock of 104 runs in 64 balls at a strike rate of 162.50. Marnus Labuschagne got his form and scored 70 runs in 61 balls to put 136 runs stand with Steve Smith. Glen Maxwell again handled the lower order and scored a quick knock of 63 runs in 29 balls with 4 sixes, which helped the team to finish on 389 in 50 overs.
In the bowling unit, Pat Cummins bowled a superb spell and took 3 wickets for 67 runs in 10 overs. To help him, Adam Zampa and Jost Hazlewood, both restricted team India with economical spells and took shared 2-2 wickets in the last game. Australian side have shown some class in fielding also. Moises Henriques’s superb catch of Virat Kohli, helped them to win the 2nd ODI comfortably.
Team Australia is looking like a perfect unit in all departments and they will be going to show that in the last match also.
Key players: Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood.

In the first 2 ODIs, Indian openers have given a good start for the team, scoring 50 runs partnerships in both games. But they have not managed to convert those innings into bigger ones. India’s batsmen were not able to set a big partnership in both previous games.
After the departure of the opening pair, Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer managed to settle down the innings in the middle order. Virat Kohli played some class shots and scored 89 runs in 87 balls. KL Rahul backed the lower middle order of the team and scored 76 runs from 66 balls with a strike rate of 115.15 to stay in the game.
In the bowling unit, Indian bowlers again failed to take wickets in the first powerplay. No bowler in the team managed to take more than a single wicket which caused them to chase a huge total of 390 runs in 50 overs. Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah both have taken 1 wicket each. Hardik Pandya who did not bowl a single over after his injury, tried his skills in bowling and bowled 4 overs in this 2nd ODI and took 1 wicket also.
Fielding remains the main concern for the team India again in the 2nd ODI. Indian fielders were not up to the mark and Australian batsmen took that advantage to register a huge total on the board. India will be looking forward to overcoming all these issues in the last match of the ODI series.
Key players: Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami

The 3rd D/N match from the series is going to play at Manuka Oval. The pitches here are high scoring matches and this is the only 10th game on this ground. The ground has a capacity of only 12,000 people.
In the last 9 ODI encounters at this ground, the pitch offered a huge advantage for the batsmen and the team batting first has won the 7 matches out of 9 played at the ground.
The team winning the toss should look to bat first here.
Both sides have a power-packed batting lineup. Australia’s batting order is in red hot form and able to score big partnerships down the order. India's batting is also good but has not managed to deliver some big partnerships. Australia already have won the series and they don’t have any pressure in this last match, on the other side the team India has pressure to save whitewash in the series. Pressure will play a crucial role and may help the Australian side in the last match also.
We predict that Australia will come victorious against India.
