The Indian cricket team will play the third and final match of the three-match ODI series with Australia on Wednesday at the Manuka Oval ground in the Australian capital. The Indian team is 0-2 behind in the series and aims to play the T20 series with a win, starting on Friday.
Team India lost in the first two ODIs
India have suffered a crushing defeat in the first two ODIs played in Sydney. In both the matches, Australia scored above 350 and defeated India a lot. In the first match, India lost by 66 runs, while in the second match, they had to suffer a defeat of 51 runs. Now his goal is to win at Canberra and gain the necessary strength for the upcoming matches.
Australia heavy in every department
In both the matches, the hosts have proved India to be second in every department of the game. The Indian bowler has taken only 10 wickets in both the matches while the bowlers have taken 763 runs. During this time there was a lot of pressure on the Indian batsmen. Despite all the efforts, he could score 646 runs. Australia have scored three centuries in two matches while Indian batsmen have not scored a single century.
Bowlers will have to show power
Taking advantage of the domestic situation, Australian bowlers have taken 17 wickets of India in this series so far and have been successful in playing an important role in their team’s success. On the other hand, the bowlers’ failure is overshadowing India. The first match Indian bowlers robbed 374 runs. There was hope for improvement in the second match but that match proved worse for the Indian bowlers. Australian batsmen scored 389 runs in this match. It took him a century and four half-centuries.
A new act will have to be done in a new ground
Barring Mohammed Shami in the first match and Hardik Pandya in the second match, no one else could impress. Now on Wednesday, India will have a new ground but the atmosphere will be the same. The Indian batsmen performed better in the second match than they did in the first match but they fell behind the target due to pressure from big partnerships and huge goals. Just as Steven Smith has played century innings for Australia in both matches, in the same way any batsman from India will have to execute partnerships while staying for a long time.
T20 series will start from December 4
The T20 series starts on 4 December. Its next two matches will be held on 6 and 8 December. After this, a four-match Test series is to be played from 17 December, whose first match will be in Adelaide. The match will be the first day-night Test between the two teams. The Test series is very important for India and India will have to win on Wednesday in order to muster the necessary strength for it. The third ODI will start at 9.10 am Indian time. In India, it will be broadcast live on various channels of Sony Networks.
