The fifth and final ODI in Australia’s tour of India will be held tomorrow at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Nagpur. Australia finally managed a win in India as they defeated India in the fourth ODI. The return of Aaron Finch has certainly strengthened their top order. While India had dominated the series and clinched the series by the third match, one more win for Australia will make the score line more respectable than it actually is. The Nagpur pitch could favor the Australians too. Still, India will remain favorites for cricket betting.
Preview – India
India will continue to experiment with the squad in spite of the last match’s defeat. Umesh Yadav took wickets though he conceded quite a few. Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav clearly lack the death-bowling skills of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah. But they can be more lethal with the new ball. KL Rahul could get a look-in as opener too. Ajinkya Rahane is solid at the top. But his scoring rate is not par with the normal standard these days. India appear well-placed for yet another win. You can back them confidently for Cricket betting.
Preview – Australia
Australia will look forward to repeat the performance in the last match: Bat first and score big. The arrival of Finch seems to have spurred David Warner on. Their batting is getting back to its top gear. But they must expect a better and more spirited performance from Indian bowlers for this match. Bowling is still a worry for the Aussies. India were in with a chance to win the last match almost until the 48th over. Bowling will be a cause of concern for the Australians.
