India vs Australia Live Score Dream 11 Predictions


IND vs AUS: The third ODI in Ranchi marks MS Dhoni’s homecoming whilst some predict it to be the last time at his home ground. Dhoni has played three ODIs at the JSCA International Stadium in Ranchi in which the side managed one win, one loss and one no result. He has batted twice in Ranchi- 10 not out vs England in October 2013 & 11 vs New Zealand in October 2016 and has accounted for three catches and a stumping in Ranchi.

Australia is trailing 2-0 in the five-match series and is standing in a must-win situation. A loss here will provide an unassailable lead to India turning the series into a dead-rubber. The visitors had nearly won the last ODI to level the series but the last over from Vijay Shankar turned the things in India’s favour. Marcus Stoinis (52), who was brilliant from the visiting side, almost took the game away from the hosts till Vijay Shankar got rid of him on the very first delivery of the last over. V Shankar trapped M Stoinis leg before and sent him back to bring the equation to 11 required of 5 deliveries with 1 wicket for Australia. Shankar then bowled a wildly-swinging yorker into the blockhole to the on-strike Adam Zampa to book Australia for 242 with three balls to spare and clinched 8 runs win for India.
