India vs Australia: India look to seal series in Indore

India and Australia are all set to clash in Indore for the 3rd and final ODI in the ongoing series on Sunday.India has won both the opening games and would look to conquer the series as the third game looms up.

The new emerging duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav have made life tough for the visitors with their variations. On the other hand, India's new ball bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah have found brilliant swing to trouble Steven Smith's boys.

Kuldeep clinched a hat-trick in the 2nd ODI at Kolkata whereas Bhuvneshwar's unplayable deliveries completely flayed the Kangaroos. Skipper Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya are in majestic form and the rest of the batsmen will look to boost their averages on Sunday.

Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav and Rohit Sharma need some big scores against their name.Australia has suffered a loss in form whereas injuries have also palyed a major role in their defeats. However, Aaron Finch's return is a good news for them as they await their batsmen to fire.

David Warner and Steven Smith have fired in patches whereas Glenn Maxwell destroyed a promising start in the Chennai ODI. Australia's fast bowlers Pat Cummins and Coulter-Nile have delivered consistently whereas all-rounder Marcus Stoinis have been the bulwark of the team.

The Indore ODI promises to be entertaining as Australia will look to keep the series alive.Although rains have lashed Indore recently, Sunday's forecast is predicted to be all clear.
