Is your Dream11 fantasy team all set for the third ODI between India and Australia (AUS vs IND 3rd ODI)?

The India tour of Australia has its 3rd ODI on 2nd December (Wednesday) as these both teams will face each other at Manuka Oval, Canberra. While India would try to avoid their second consecutive ODI series whitewash, Australia would favour continuing its dominance. Both the teams are filled with a lot of star-studded players, and hence it is important to think wisely before choosing whom to ignore.

Since the credits of these star players are too high, you cannot include all of them in your fantasy team. There are a few players that you can afford to ignore in your fantasy team for this big encounter.

Despite the two dominating wins to seal a series victory, Australian wicket-keeper is yet to step up in this series. A possible reason could be the dominance of Aaron Finch, David Warner and Steve Smith at the top which makes him hardly come to bat. Being a lower middle-order batsman, his strike-rate of 91.8 might put a lot of pressure on the team in case the top-order fails. His contribution to the series was just 17 runs in 13 balls and 2 catches. Given the consistent domination of Australia’s top-order, he is unlikely to get a chance, and one shall not risk investing on him.

2) Yuzvendra Chahal

Considering that he conceded 180 runs in just two matches for only one wicket, he obviously won’t make a good pick. His economy rate this year was a gigantic 6.8, unaffordable in ODIs. In the first match of the series, he conceded the record highest by an Indian spinner in any ODI match. He almost did the same in the second match, thankfully bowled only nine overs to save embarrassing records again. You wouldn’t pick someone breaking the negative records in any fantasy team.

3) Shreyas Iyer

Shreyas Iyer is another player who was good in the New Zealand tour in February but did horribly bad in the ongoing series. So far in two matches this series, he scored only 40 runs in 38 balls, averaging 20. A strike-rate of nearly run-a-ball isn’t of any help in matches where both teams are crossing 300. His overall ODI record against Australia is pathetic, as he averages only 18.75 in five innings against them. With such statistics, you can’t pick him in your Dream11 team.
