LIVE: Ind vs Aus 3rd ODI | Australia Innings | Live Scores, Audio Updates & Analysis
Welcome To The Cric Crak Radio Family. Presenting To You The Entire Audio Coverage Of The Third ODI Between India and Australia At The Melbourne Cricket Ground.
IND vs Aus 3rd ODI MCG Preview
Finally, the Indian tour of Australia is all set to come to an end and the fans from both sides certainly couldn’t have asked for a better grand finale. The show is being held in the biggest theater in town, the home of cricket for Australia- The Melbourne Cricket Ground also widely known as the ‘MCG’.
While the heat certainly hasn’t gone down too well with both the teams in the ongoing series- So much, that even somebody as fit as a Mahendra Singh Dhoni suffered a few cramps during the 2nd ODI in Adelaide. Having said that, there is certainly good news for cricketers from both sides as the temperature is expected to hit a maximum of 28 degrees Celsius this time around.
Having dominated the T20 ( Yes, rain saved Australia during the first game) and the Test Series, India will certainly start as favorites to win this one. Their team certainly looks stronger- Yes, both on skill and on paper! They seem to have the right resources to do so and they are the number 2 ODI ranked team in the world.
On the other hand, the Australian Cricket Team has had a miserable run in the ODI format in the recent past and a win here could certainly do their confidence a world of good before the ICC World Cup 2019. Whatever the case might be, let’s hope that in the end cricket should be the real winner! Both the teams have evenly matched each other in the ongoing ODI series and the team which wins the game will certainly deserve to win the series. Mostly numbers don’t tell you the entire story in cricket but in this case, it truly will and we will leave it to that!
For starters, it’s going to be quite hot in Adelaide as the temperatures are expected to hit 41 degrees. India would be looking to bring their ODI campaign on track after receiving a bit of a jolt during the first ODI.
Virat Kohli and his men would be keen to keep their brand equity intact after doing all the hard- work during the test series. The Australian Cricket Team, on the other hand, would know that this is their best opportunity to revive their lost pride. They have hardly won any cricket matches in this format and a win against the number 2 side in the world would do their confidence a world of good.
It’s a 3 match series and while there are a few questions about the batting order, India would be wary of changing their combination considering there is hardly any room for experiment during such a short series. The only possible change might be Kedar Jadhav coming in instead of Dinesh Karthik. The Australian Cricket Team would wish to not disturb the winning combination and is expected to go in with the same playing XI.
Both captains would want to win the toss and bat first owing to the fact that the sun will be pelting down during the first half of the game and the heat could be quite a torture for whichever team is on the field during those hours. India would expect Mahendra Singh Dhoni to strike at a better rate and it would be interesting to see his approach. Meanwhile, India will certainly start as favourites but the pressure would be on the visitors to win this one and not let the series go away.
