The Men in Blue are geared up for yet another decider as Virat Kohli and men made a classy comeback in the second ODI which was held at the Saurashtra Cricket Association in Rajkot. After a humiliating defeat by 10 wickets, the Indian team presented a balanced performance in the second game which led them to register a 36 run victory with five balls to spare. The match will be hosted at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Now ahead of the decider let’s have a look at the key players from both sides who could help their team register a win. India Vs Australia, Cricket Score 3rd ODI Match.
With a quick-fire of 80 runs from 52 balls, KL Rahul not only did well with the willow but also was great behind the stumps. KL Rahul stepped into the shoes of injured Rishabh Pant. His quick stumping led to Aaron Finch departure who could have been fatal for the Indian team. So far in the three-game series, KL Rahul has made 127 runs. The Karnataka batsman is surely one of the key players for the third game.
Now the battle between Virat Kohli and Adam Zampa will intensify in the third ODI. In both the games it was the spinner who walked away with the wicket of the Indian captain. This was the fifth time that Zampa dismissed Virat Kohli in the ODIs. The leggie has scalped four wickets so far with an average of 25.75. This surely makes him a key player for the Aussies.
Gabbar who just fell four runs short of getting his 18th ODI century will also be the player to watch out for. In the first match, he scored 74 runs and in the second he made 96. This makes him a player to watch out for.
The weather during the game will be ideal for cricket. The best part is that there will be no rains to play a spoilsport and the fans can enjoy the full game of cricket. The match will begin at 1.30 PM IST.
