Ind Vs Aus 3rd Match Coverage 18th January 2019: Preview, Playing XI, & Match Prediction.

The thrilling second encounter between the two heavy-weights came to an exhilarating conclusion with India leveling the three-match series. With Kohli leading from the front with a century and Dhoni once again proving his critics wrong with an unbeaten 55, the final match ODI at Melbourne will be intense. This was a very dominant performance by India, after their dismal showing at Sydney. Both the batting and the bowling unit showed they were ready to bounce back and take home the series. So, join us for the latest team news, starting XIs, key players, and of course our match-analysis and prediction.

Australia

After opting to bat first again, Australia put up a defendable score of 298, largely thanks to a gaudy Shaun Marsh innings. The openers Alex Carey and Aaron Finch were faltered by the duo of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Mohamed Shami. Australia’s openers have been poor this series and this resulted in pressure in the middle orders. The most impressive with the bat though, has been Shaun Marsh, who once again put up a fine 131 in just 123 balls. The Aussies will once again look to their in-form Marsh to help steer the innings in Melbourne. Usman Khawaja and Peter Handscomb will also need to step up in the final match.

Betting & Bowling-line up

The inexperienced Aussie bowling line up was at the mercy of Indian batting at Adelaide. The same combination of Behrendorff and Richardson proved to be very costly this time around. This shows what a difference an experienced bowler like Strac could have made. Nathan Lyon and Peter Siddle are still ineffective. The coach would do well to field Zampa for the final match.

Shaun Marsh has been in excellent form and he will do damage with the bat if not checked early. The bowling will have to be helmed by Richardson and Behrendorff.

Predicted Playing XI

Alex Carey, Aaron Finch, Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Marc Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Adam Zampa, Peter Siddle, Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff.

India

The 299 run target might have been difficult to reach, had it not been for Virat Kohli. The skipper struck a magnificent 104 to help steer India to victory. Dhoni once again proved that age is just a number with his signature six at the end. India has perhaps the best chasing duo, the game has ever produced. Both Dhawan and Rohit Sharma started off well and the bowlers were having a hard time. Sharma in particular, was again on target but missed his half century. Kohli played an excellent innings to bring up his 39th ton and the match was later finished off by Dhoni with a splendid 55 not out. India would do well to continue on this form at Melbourne. With a nice batting surface at Melbourne, India might just have take away the series.

Bowling line-up

The Indian bowling did well to restrict Australia fewer than 300. The duo of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Mohamed Shami bagged seven wickets between them to disrupt the Aussie batting. Debutant Mohammed Siraj proved to be expensive in his first match. The main threat will be in the form of Shaun Marsh and the Indian pacers will have to keep the left hander in check early in the innings.

Betting line-up

Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni will be looking to chase down another total to bag the series. While, Bhuvi and Shami will look to keep the Aussies in check.

Predicted Playing XI

Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Amabati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammad Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed.

Australia

The Aussies are on a high roll after their first win against India at Sydney. With a decent batting show on a flat pitch, the Australian bowling line up did well to restrict the Indians. After losing the test series, Australia will be out for revenge in the ODI’s. The odds were pretty much against the Aussies in the first match and yet they managed to strife the Indian lineup. But still the team is pretty much inexperienced with some bowlers giving away cheap runs. The middle order held on their own with 50s from Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh and Peter Handscomb.

Batting

The opening partnership of Aaron Finch and Alex Carey will need to fire in the second match. We know, what happens when Finch gets going. The primary concern for the men down under will be their bowling lineup. With only Richardson and Behrendorff proving effective in the first match, Australia has a big task of stopping a prolific Indian batting lineup. With the off spin of Nathan Lyon proving futile, Australia might consider replacing him for Adam Zampa in the next match.

Players to watch

The key performers for this match would be Usman Khawaja and Peter Handscomb in the batting lineup, while India will be unsettled by the newcomers Richardson and Behrendorff.

AUS Predicted XI

Alex Carey, Aaron Finch, Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Marc Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Adam Zampa, Peter Siddle, Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff.

India

Ah! The mighty batting lineup came under fire in the very first match of the series. It was not as much as Australia’s bowling but India’s woeful batting that led to the downfall. With a better and experienced lineup, India faltered badly and ended up losing by 34 runs. The lone star in the poor performance was a flamboyant 133 run knock by Rohit Sharma. With Dhawan again failing to deliver again, the middle order fell like dominos. The in-form Virat Kohli was caught out cheaply and so was Rayudu. The biggest take away from the match though, was Dhoni’s slow performance. Although, the former captain hit a fifty, the knock came off 96 balls. The batting position of the former skipper has come under consideration with many contemplating whether he should come higher or lower. Shastri has a lot to think about, if he wants to level the series.

Bowling Line-up

India went with 5 bowlers on a flat track at Adelaide. The unit did well to restrict Australia under 300. The duo of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Kuldeep Yadav was effective against the Australian line up. Shami and Khaleel Ahmed, round off the bowling unit with Jadeja chipping in, with a few overs.

Betting Line-up

India will depend on its batting to power its way through the second match. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli will be looking to score with the bat. Bhuvi and Kuldeep will prove to be the bane in Australian’s batting line up.

India’s Predicted Playing XI

Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Amabati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammad Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed.
