Australia – Preview
Australia are sinking in the series after losing the third ODI to India. It’s only a matter of pride now, for the team to try and conquer India in the upcoming match. Opener Aaron Finch marked his return to the Australia side with a impressive century in the third ODI, but the thrill was tempered by another loss for their side. “You have to play 100 percent to beat (India) in these conditions,” Finch said. “If you play 90 percent, it’s not good enough here. He added that “Whenever you’re losing, it’s never easy”. Maxwell continued with his poor performance with the bat, which greatly contributed to the team’s defeat.
India are in high spirits after not tasting defeat in a long time now. They look forward to defeat the visitors and continue their winning streak. While the bowling has come good for the team, the batting still remains an area of concern. The top order fails to get off to a good start while the middle order has also has been inconsistent. Virat Kohli has regained his form and hopes to keep it up in the match tomorrow. Virat Kohli equalled MS Dhoni’s captaincy record of nine successive wins. If India manages to beat Australia in the upcoming ODI, he has a chance to get the record in his name.
