AUS tour of IND 2023 

IND vs AUS, 3rd ODI


Preview 

Team India has secured the first place in the ODI ranking after beating Australia in the second match of the 3-match ODI series. They have just handed Australia a brutal thrashing in the second ODI at Indore to clinch the series 2-0 with one game left. What’s more impressive about this series win is that it came without many of their regular players. Meanwhile, Australia have plenty of questions to answer. They have now lost five ODIs in a row and need to get things in order quickly as the World Cup is now just a couple of weeks away.

India couldn’t have asked for a better start leading to the World Cup. They just won the Asia Cup last week and have now beaten Australia at home with a second-string side. More importantly, with every game, they have checked off one key box or another.

In the second ODI at Indore, they blasted 399-5 courtesy of brilliant centuries from Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer, and a whirlwind unbeaten 72 off 37 balls by Suryakumar Yadav. A superb bowling display then saw them bowl Australia out for 217 and win the match by 99 runs (DLS method). Australia have been struggling to get going in the ODI format of late. Their main worry is the regular middle-order collapse. Even in the second ODI against India, they collapsed from 89-2 to 140-8, before the tail-enders rescued them a bit.

Both sides have faced each other in 148 matches in ODI. Out of these 148 matches, IND has won 56 whereas AUS has won on 82 occasions. 10 matches ended without a result. IND and AUS have played 69 ODI matches against each other in India, where the Hosts won 34 matches, while the Visitors won 30 while five matches ended in no result.

 

Match Details

Match: IND vs AUS, 3rd ODI, AUS tour of IND 2023

Date: Wednesday, September 27, 2023

Time: 01:30 PM

Venue: Saurashtra Cricket Association, Rajkot


Pitch and Weather Report

The average score batting first at the Madhavrao Scindia Cricket Ground is 274. The highest total posted here is 414-7 by India against Sri Lanka in 2009. This is another high-scoring venue and another huge 300-plus total by the team batting first is very much on the cards. The ball comes on nicely to the bat for the first half of the innings, and there are runs for the taking. By the middle overs, the pitch will slow down a little and the ball is expected to grip the surface a little. This is where the spinners will come on. However, that shouldn’t last long, and batters should get their chance to flex their muscles by the deaths.

Rajkot will be a little cloudy, but mostly hot and humid and is likely to be around 32 degrees Celsius during the match day. There is no rain predicted on the match day for this contest.

Match Prediction

For the third and final ODI between IND and AUS, both teams are expected to be at near full strength. India will be on a high and will start as favourites for the game. You can, however, never count Australia out. We are expecting them to put up a much stiffer fight in the last match. The two losses here would have certainly hurt them, and their main players would be itching to display their mettle. The flat pitch here would allow their batters to flex their muscles, particularly the likes of Mitchell Marsh and Glenn Maxwell. However, India looks like the more sorted side, going by overall strength and balance. Their batting unit is in crazy good form right now, and it might be too difficult for even the regular Aussie bowling attack to stop them.
