India are being led by Virat Kohli in this cricket series. After being completely outplayed in the first ODI cricket game, India made a good comeback and leveled the series at Rajkot.
After batting at the fourth position in the first ODI, Kohli was back batting at the number three position. The move immediately paid the dividends as Kohli scored 78 off 76 balls. KL Rahul batted at number four in this game and played the knock of his life. He scored 80 runs off just 52 balls and helped India reach a total of 340 runs.
Our prediction is of the inclusion of Rishabh Pant in the playing eleven.
Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:
- Virat Kohli
- KL Rahul
- Rohit Sharma
- Jasprit Bumrah
- Navdeep Saini
- Rishabh Pant
- Shreyas Iyer
- Kuldeep Yadav
- Ravindra Jadeja
- Mohammad Shami
- Shikhar Dhawan
Australia are being led by Aaron Finch in this cricket series. Despite the return of Steve Smith and David Warner in the side, Finch has been trusted with the captaincy.
Australia chose to field first yet again in order to repeat the performance of the first ODI. However, this time their bowlers could not replicate the performance of the first ODI as India posted a huge total of 340 runs. In response, Australia were good in the patches especially when Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne were batting together. However, the target proved to be a bit too much in the end.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of Australia’s playing XI:
- Aaron Finch
- Steve Smith
- Pat Cummins
- David Warner
- Alex Carrey
- Mitch Starc
- Marnus Labuschagne
- Adam Zampa
- Ashton Turner
- Ashton Agar
- Kane Richardson
Expert Prediction: IND vs AUS
In the last few months, a trend has emerged in India’s home season. They have tended to lose the first cricket game only to put themselves under a lot of pressure. The good part has been the fact that they have responded well to those situations and have not lost the series. They will have another test in the next cricket game when they will get out in Bengaluru to face a very good Australian side.
KL Rahul had been given a decent run in ODI side in recent times but had not yet played a knock that would put him in the top players category. However, he played a knock of his ODI career in the previous cricket game at Rajkot. He batted out of his normal position and scored 80 runs off just 52 balls.
His wicket-keeping also came as a breath of fresh air as he rarely fumbled against the quicks and, more importantly, against the spinners. His wicket-keeping is going to give a lot of options to the Indian cricket team and it remains to be seen if they are going to stick with this option.
Australia know that they are not far off. They would like to be better with the ball in the next cricket game and allow their batsmen to take over the proceedings. While David Warner and Aaron Finch look in fine form, Steve Smith now has a score behind his back. Marnus Labuschagne got a good score as well now hence, there is not a lot of worry on the batting front.
India have shown signs of turning the things around and they would be thanking their stars that they managed to do that in the second ODI. However, despite that, our prediction is of a victory for Australia in the final ODI cricket game as they seem a bit more settled at the moment than the home side.
Toss prediction? – The cricket matches at Bengaluru tend to be a high-scoring game. Teams like to chase down the target nowadays hence, our prediction is that the team winning the toss would like to bowl first.
