2023: IND Vs. AUS: Watch Out For Three-Man Battles In The Third One-Day International

On Wednesday, India and Australia will play the third and final one-day international at Chepauk in Chennai. Both teams have lived up to their expectations of a hard-fought series, which is currently level at 1-1. In spite of Australia’s poor batting in the first ODI, the hosts lost the subsequent match, so there is still a lot at stake in Chennai, which promises to be an exciting conclusion.

After losing both games, the Indian top-tier will undoubtedly remain under scrutiny in Chennai. In any case, the Men in Blue will realize that even the guests have a nervous center request as found in Mumbai. Both teams now have some matches to look forward to.

In light of this, let’s take a look at three matches that have the potential to decide the outcome of both the Chennai ODI and the series:

#3 Suryakumar Yadav vs Mitchell Starc

Suryakumar Yadav has struggled to replicate his performance in T20Is in ODIs, particularly at No. 4. With a physical issue to Shreyas Iyer, SKY had an incredible possibility having an effect and a solid case for a World Cup spot.

That hasn’t been the case, however, as the Indian star hasn’t played a game in the series. Yadav was ruled LBW in both games after he was caught at the crease and played across the line to Mitchell Starc’s inswinger.

Australia will back Starc once more to ensure that SKY has a bad day. The right-hander has little time left, and it looks like the Chennai One-Day International could be a test of his character.

#2 Mitchell Marsh vs Kuldeep Yadav

With two half-centuries, Mitchell Marsh has arguably been Australia’s best batsman in the ODI series thus far. In the second ODI in Vizag, he was absolutely amazing at making strokes and left no room for the Indian bowlers to come back into the game.

Kuldeep Yadav will become a crucial bowler for India on the Chennai surface, which will provide spinners with more support. In ODIs, Kuldeep has bowled 15 balls to Marsh and given up 28 runs, but the wrist spinner has shown that he can learn quickly.

Marsh won’t be able to hit through the line if the pitch has enough grip, so Kuldeep will be excited about his chances of getting rid of the Australian opener.

#1 Virat Kohli vs Adam Zampa

Even Australian wrist-spinner Adam Zampa, like Kuldeep Yadav, will be looking forward to bowling on the Chennai surface because it has historically benefited spinners. In the first two games, he didn’t do much, but he might need to play a great spell to help the visitors win the series.

In the previous match, Virat Kohli scored 31, but he was unable to turn his good start into a big score. We would like to change this for Chepauk, but he will face Zampa bowling with full confidence against him.

Kohli was bowled out by Zampa five times in one-day internationals, but the former Indian captain still managed to score 214 runs off 193 deliveries. Both will be excited about their chances of winning in Chennai.
