India will be looking to clinch the win over Australia in the final ODI of the series as the game hangs in the balance with Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Shami being India’s last surviving hope. The hosts need 40 runs in 20-odd deliveries with just two wickets in hand and it seems like the game is all but lost for the hosts.
