  Match Timing: 1.30 pm
  Match Venue: M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore
Expected Crowd Turnout:   35,000

India host Australia in the final match of the 3-match ODI series at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore on Sunday. After a crushing 10-wicket defeat at the hands of Australia, the Men in Blue replied with a resounding victory in the second ODI at the Rajkot. 

Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul all scored big and the bowlers finished the game as India won by 36 runs to level the series. Now with the series tied at 1-1, all eyes turn to Bangalore. Will India be able to win the series from being one down? Or will the Aussies dominate the hosts as they did at Mumbai? Whatever may be the case, a thriller surely in the outing on Sunday.

Here is complete IND vs AUS 3rd ODI Dream11 Prediction:

Key Players in form Ind- Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Kuldeep Yadav

Aus- Steve Smith, Aaron Finch, Adam Zampa

Weather Conditions Mostly Sunny.

29°C, 50% Humidity, Winds up to 14 km/hr. 10% Precipitation.

Toss Advantage Going by the statistics, there isn’t a clear toss advantage to sides. In the last 10 years, the M Chinnaswamy Stadium has hosted 8 ODI matches. Teams batting first have won 3 matches; Teams batting second have won 4 matches and one tie.

Having said that, both Virat Kohli and Aaron Finch will like bat first and put pressure on the opposition in the second innings.

Pitch Report The M Chinnaswamy Stadium pitch is considered a batting pitch. Plus with not a very long boundary, the ball tends to reach more in the crowd than in the hands of the fielders. Always expect an high-scoring encounter in Bangalore.

Fantasy Cricket League Prediction | Tips and Tricks for today’s match between IND vs AUS 3rd ODI Dream11 Prediction

Wicket-Keepers

KL Rahul is the obvious choice from the Indian team. Rahul is an occasional keeper and was called upon after Rishabh Pant was ruled out of the 2nd ODI due to concussion. In the absence of Dhawan or Rohit Sharma, KL will open the innings. 

However, against Australia, KL has been used in the number 3 and number 4 spot; excelling in both spots by scoring 47 and 80. In the 2nd ODI, KL showed no rust in wicketkeeping as he stumped Finch and caught Starc and Zampa.

Batsmen

Australian openers flourished in the first ODI, with both David Warner and Aaron Finch scoring centuries. Although they couldn’t have much of an impact in the second match, expect fireworks from these two in the small Bengaluru ground.

Steve Smith is another must in the team. The former Aussie captain almost led his team to a stunning run chase in the second ODI before falling for 98 runs.

When it comes to playing against Australia, you can always count on one player – Shikhar Dhawan. The opener, whose wife Ayesha Mukherji incidentally hails from Australia, has amassed 1145 runs against the visitors at an impressive average of 45.8. He scored 74 and 96 in the last two matches respectively and would look to go past the three figures on Sunday.

Note: Dhawan suffered a rib injury in the second match and did not field in the second innings. Although team physiotherapists have told that the opener “seems fine”, it is recommended to check the pre-match squad announcement before selecting him.

Virat Kohli is a must-have in the team considering his form. Moreover, Kohli has single-handedly won many run chases in the Chinnaswamy stadium.

Dhawan could have been paired with Rohit Sharma, especially considering his knack of scoring centuries against Australia and his knock of 42 in the 2nd ODI. But the opener suffered a freak shoulder injury during fielding that doesn’t look good. Again, wait for the squad announcement before selecting him.

All-rounders

Ravindra Jadeja is another must as he always contributes with either runs, wickets, catches and run-outs. Moreover, Jadeja is economical and can pick up the odd wicket. In the first two ODI’s Jadeja scored 25 and 20 coming in the lower end of the innings and picked up 2 wickets.

Ashton Agar is another great all-rounder to have. He picked up a wicket in the first ODI besides scoring 25 runs in the second. At 8 credits, he is a great buy. Marnus Labuschagne is another great option here. He scored 33 in the last game and has the ability to come up with useful deliveries.

Bowlers

Australian bowlers Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Pat Cummings and Adam Zampa have all been able to pick wickets despite being tossed for runs; especially in the second ODI. Starc has picked 3 wickets; Cummings has picked 2 wickets; Richardson has picked 2 wickets and Zampa has picked 4 wickets. All of them will be crucial if the Aussies want to win.

The Indian bowling side has come back with accuracy and picked crucial wickets after a dismissive performance in the first ODI. Jasprit Bumrah was very economical despite picking only one wicket in the second ODI. Mohammed Shami hit back with 3 wickets after being hit for 77 runs in his 10-over spell. 

Kuldeep’s game-changing over in which he picked both Smith and Carey was vital in turning the game in favour of India. Yuzvendra Chahal has not featured in the first two games. However, he is also a good choice considering he knows and has played on the Bangalore pitch for several years now.  

Captain & Vice-Captain Choices

Virat Kohli; Steve Smith; David Warner; A Finch.

Bangalore’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium has an out and out batting pitch. Add to it the fact that it has fast outfield and you have a batsman’s heaven. It, therefore, becomes a sensible move to choose batsmen as your captain and vice-captain.

Our personal favourite for captaincy will be Virat Kohli. He has extensive experience of playing here having been with RCB for over a decade. Steve Smith and Aaron Finch have been in red-hot form thus far and would relish striking Indian bowlers out of the park in Bangalore. They are an ideal candidate either as captain or vice-captain. David Warner is also a great choice as the vice-captain.
