The third ODI between India and Australia currently stands at a standstill with both sides in the game. Rohit Sharma-led India have somewhat strengthened their position in the fixture after restricting Australia to just 269 runs on the board in 49 overs, with Hardik Pandya and Kuldeep Yadav picking up three wickets each.

The Indian skipper Rohit Sharma had a great start to the innings as he started to fire off on all cylinders scoring a quick-fire 30 runs off 17 deliveries hitting 2 fours and 2 sixes in his short innings before he was dismissed by Sean Abbott. However, on the back of his 30-run knock against Australia Rohit Sharma has joined an elite list of Indian batters.

Rohit Sharma Looks To Seal The Series Against Australia

After winning the first game against Australia, India were thrashed by Australia in the second fixture of the three-match series as Australia bashed India by 10 wickets to level the series. The Indian skipper will be looking to even the odds and register the win in the fixture to clinch the series 2-1.

As of writing, India have put up 85 runs on the board in 15 overs at the loss of 2 wickets, losing both the openers in Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma in the process. Virat Kohli and KL Rahul who are up at the crease will look to get the runs flowing and get a big win for their side. On the other hand, Australia know they have done well with the ball so far in the series and will hope that their unit can provide some quick breakthroughs.
