India vs Australia 5th ODI: India's last chance to grab ODI series trophy
New Delhi : Australia have made a brilliant comeback in the ongoing ODI series as they levelled it 2-2 against India from 2-0, making it the last game decider on who will lift the trophy. With an aim to clinch the trophy, both the teams will meet for the one last time in the season on Wednesday to script another exciting chapter in their famed rivalry.
India had made a brilliant start in the series with two consecutive wins, including one in a low scoring game; since then Australia had been playing a responsible cricket and had not faced defeat, including one of their biggest chase against India.
The last game becomes more interesting as India will not like to lose the series and Australia is high on confidence with the last two wins.
The two teams will be playing the final game in Delhi's Kotla stadium.
At the Feroze Shah Kotla ground, the wicket is usually low and slow but the team would not like to be surprised in the key game which makes the toss crucial.
Not many runs have been scored in the last two ODI matches played here with India losing to New Zealand by six runs in October 2016 and winning against West Indies by 48 runs in October 2014. The Twenty20 games have been full of runs, though.
India: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, Rishabh Pant, Vijay Shankar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
