THIS IS IT! It’s the final of the 5-match IND vs AUS ODI series and it’s anybody’s game. Both the teams are level after Australia won the last two ODIs despite losing the first two and keeping themselves alive in the series.

Australia are in tremendous form and despite losing the first two ODIs, they have shone in all the departments throughout this series and there is absolutely no reason as to why they’d change their winning XI.
Meanwhile, India, on the other hand, had a worrying time with their openers not performing but that all changed in the last ODI. Bhuvi was given a rare outing but he couldn’t make the most of his opportunity. We can expect a change or two but overall, both the teams will look mostly the same come tomorrow.
Here is the playing XI for both the sides:
- R. Sharma
- S. Dhawan
- V. Kohli (c)
- KM Jadhav
- R. Pant (wk)
- V. Shankar
- R. Jadeja
- Kuldeep Yadav
- B. Kumar
- M. Shami
- J. Bumrah
- A. Finch (c)
- U. Khawaja
- G. Maxwell
- P. Handscomb
- MP Stoinis
- A. Carey (wk)
- A. Turner
- P. Cummins
- J. Richardson
- NM Lyon
- A. Zampa
Players to watch out for:
Kohli is a man for the big occasions and he is surely one to watch out for in the final ODI.
Patt Cummins had a tremendous series with the ball, 5 wickets in the last ODI, and he will be hoping to replicate his fine form.
Usman Khawaja has been in monstrous form up top and India would want to remove him early if they want to increase their chances of winning.
