The Aussies have not been really bad so far; they stopped the sturdy Indian batting line-up from crossing the triple hundred mark, which is possible for the hosts in their own homeland. They have had troubles in playing against the spin and another problem according to the captain Steve Smith is the sudden collapse of their batting order. The Aussies should focus on consistency and need to consult Sridharan Sriram, who they chose to be their spin adviser.

Looking at the scorecards of the previous games, it can be seen that the pitches of the last two ODIs assisted the bowlers. The third ODI is going to be played at Holkar stadium’s pitch, where scores have always been high. It will be important for the Aussies to keep this fact in mind – it will help them gain confidence. India are far ahead of the Aussies psychologically, so another essential point of the game for the Aussies will be that they play with a cool mind. Having won both the previous games and only one more needed to seal the series, along with home crowd supports, the Indians will be entering the stadium with flying colors. Still, the yellow kits are unpredictable and Indians will need to display the same strength and not lose a bit of focus in this game as well.

The evergreen Indian skipper Virat Kohli was dismissed for a duck in the first one-day but he came back strongly and crushed the hopes of the Australians that he is out of form. He fell only eight runs short of a hundred and breaking the record of Ricky Ponting’s 31 one day hundreds. The opening pair is strong – Rahane and Sharma – and they both need to focus on providing a good basement for the side. India have a 100% win record in Indore and this will boost their confidence even better, providing them with a challenge to defend their winning streak.

The Aussies will be needing to focus on their batting line-up, their batsmen like Maxwell, Warner, Finch and Smith, the skipper himself, can crush their opponent when having spent enough time at the pitch. The batting order needs to focus on consistency and avoid the sudden fall of wickets.
