Australia has made a solid comeback into the five-match series after winning the last two matches. The visitors clinched a thrilling fourth ODI by four wickets. Ashton Turner brought his best as the lanky batsman displayed his pyrotechnics. Turner batted at the top of his game to bludgeon a quickfire knock of 84 runs from 43 balls. Meanwhile, we try to decode India’s Predicted Playing XI for the decider.
Thus, the tourists were able to keep the series alive. On the other hand, India would have disappointed as they could not defend 358 runs. The hosts had a tight grip on the match but Ashton Turner was able to turn the match on its head. It was a fine effort from the visitors as they came up with the collective effort.
Here is a look at India’s Predicted Playing XI:
Rohit Sharma had scored a fine knock of 95 runs. Sharma had changed gears as he was once again at his best. Thus, the stylish batsman will like to score another good knock.
Shikhar Dhawan had struck back into form as he scored a blistering knock of 143 runs. However, Dhawan’s knock went in vain as India lost the match.
KL Rahul could not get going as he scored 26 runs from 31 balls. Rahul will get another chance and he will like to grab his opportunity with both hands.
Virat Kohli had a rare failure in the last match. Kohli will play a crucial role in the decider and his performance could be the difference between the two sides.
Kedar Jadhav could not make most of the good start which was given by Indian openers. Jadhav had played a blistering knock of 81 in the first ODI.
Rishabh Pant had provided the finishing touches as he scored 36 runs. However, he missed the stumping chance to get rid of Ashton Turner, which was the turning point of the match.
India will like to clinch the series.
Vijay Shankar has shown the right promise with the bat. However, he stills needs to work on his bowling. Shankar has been timing the ball to perfection.
Ravindra Jadeja could come back into the playing XI in place of Yuzvendra Chahal. The leg-spinner had taken the beating in the previous match as conceded 80 runs.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled his first spell with success. However, he was not at his best in the death overs as he was taken for plenty.
Kuldeep Yadav has done a good job for the India National Cricket Team. The mystery chinaman will like to deliver the goods in the all-important decider.
India’s Jasprit Bumrah took three wickets in the previous match. However, even Bumrah was on the expensive side. Hence, Bumrah will like to hit the straps.
