India vs Australia 2019, 3rd ODI – Toss Report
India won the toss and decided to bowl first against Australia in third One-Day International at the JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi.
Here is what the captains said:
“We are gonna have a bowl. Looks a decent track, could be dry in the afternoon and dew could settle in later. Looks a better pitch than the previous games. Dew is basically the main factor behind chasing. This is a special cap, it’s a tribute to the Armed forces. We’re all donating our match fees of this game to the families of the martyrs. I urge everyone in the country to do the same and stick to the families of our armed forces. We’re playing the same team. It’s been a special couple of games.”
” I would have bowled first too maybe though I am not sure. Need to get stuck in batting first and post a good total. We have one change – Coulter-Nile has gone home for the birth of his child. Jhye Richardson comes in.”
The series so far has been all about the how the teams have dealt with the pressure. So far, India have handled the pressure better than the visitors and consequently they are two nil up in the five-match series. But keeping aside the results, not all has been without concern for the hosts. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan have shared partnerships of 4 and 0 in the last two games. The form of Ambati Rayudu is also a big concern. At the same time, India have several positives like the performance of Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Vijay Shankar and the bowlers.
For Australia, the series has been the case of so near yet so far. They will be looking to come up with a complete performance in the upcoming game as they look to avoid another series defeat.
