India vs Australia on March 22


A shambolic batting performance in the second ODI against Australia has left Indian skipper Rohit Sharma with plenty of headaches ahead of the series finale in Chennai on Wednesday, March 22. The visitors absolutely battered the home side in a resounding ten-wicket victory in Visakhapatnam to draw level in the three-match series. While Australian left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc was at his menacing best with the new ball, the Indian batters did not help their cause with a couple of loose shots at the top of the order. India's inability to cope with the swinging ball is the question on everybody's lips and the hosts will need to go back to the drawing board if they wish to claim the series. Meanwhile, the visitors will be eyeing a memorable series victory when they take the field in Chennai. It was a clinical outing for Steve Smith's team in the second ODI as they completed one of the most one-sided victories against their famed rivals in their own backyard. It is the swashbuckling form of the two Mitchells - Marsh and Starc, which will be pleasing the Men in Yellow in the ongoing ODI series. While Marsh is batting like a man possessed at the top of the order, Starc has been too hot to handle for the Indians. Australia will be hoping for more of the same from the influential duo in the final white-ball assignment of the tour.

Best economical pick – Mohammad Siraj is the number one ranked bowler in the ICC rankings currently. He has taken three wickets in two games at an average of 22, an economy of 7.61, and a strike rate of 17.3.

Top captains & vice captains – 23-year-old Shubman Gill scored a century in the last Test against Australia and has hit centuries in all formats of the game this year. He has been the leading run-scorer for India in ODIs since 2022 and is the only batter who has made over 1000 runs. Mitchell Starc has taken eight wickets in two games in the series at an average of 12.75, an economy of 5.71, and a strike rate of 13.3. He is the leading wicket-taker in the series.

Smart pick – Travis Head has been one of the best performers for Australia in this format in recent times. He has scored 606 runs in 11 ODI games since 2022 and is the leading run-scorer for Australia.

Cautious Pick – Adam Zampa has failed to pick a wicket so far in two games that he has played, and can be avoided for this game.

My XI – Shubman Gill (Captain), Mitchell Starc (Vice-Captain), Mohammad Siraj, Travis Head, Virat Kohli, Lokesh Rahul, Nathan Ellis, Mitchell Marsh, Josh Inglis, Glen Maxwell, Rohit Sharma
