Current match updates
Current match updates: In the third one-day international on Wednesday in Rajkot, Australian pacer Mitchell Starc and all-rounder Glenn Maxwell made their comebacks in an effort to help their team defeat India. After the visitors dropped the first two games of the three-match series before India’s World Cup next month, captain Pat Cummins won the toss and decided to bat first against India. Australia is trying to snap a five-match losing record in one-day internationals. Starc and Maxwell have recovered from their injuries. One of the five changes to the Australian XI is Cummins, who missed the prior thumping by 99 runs. The Indian team, which has numerous players on rest and a virus in the camp that caused the team to evacuate, welcomes back captain Rohit Sharma and ace batsman Virat Kohli.
Kuldeep Yadav (2/48 in 6 overs) bagged a couple of wickets while Siraj (1/68) and Prasidh Krishna (1/45 in 5 overs) got a wicket each. Earlier, Australia won the toss and opted to bat first with five changes to their side.
Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the 3rd ODI between India and Australia at Rajkot. India have already sealed the series 2-0 and with the returns of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and other key players, India will be looking to end the series on a high before they begin their ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 campaign, starting off with the practice games in two days time. A host of players including Shubman Gill, Shardul Thakur and Hardik Pandya are likely to be rested.
With the ICC ODI World Cup knocking at the door, Team India looks invincible in the 50-over format. After a resounding Asia Cup triumph, the Men in Blue have been showing their dominance in the ongoing ODI series against Australia on home soil. India, under the captaincy of KL Rahul, has already taken an unassailable lead in the three-match series by winning the first two games. Regular skipper Rohit Sharma will return to India’s leadership role when both teams square off for the third and final ODI. The match will be played at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on September 27.
India outclassed Australia in every aspect during the first two ODIs. After a comprehensive five-wicket victory in the opening game, the hosts appeared more dominant in the subsequent fixture. The Indian batting department stole the show in the second ODI, producing a mammoth 399 runs in 50 overs. Rain played a spoilsport ahead of Australia’s innings. The visitors got a revised target of 317 runs, which needed to be chased in 33 overs (as per DLS method). The Aussies faced a rare batting collapse, with three batters returning single-digit scores. They ultimately fell 99 runs short of the required total.
