Australia defeated India in the 2nd ODI and has already won the three-match series 2-0. With one game still to play, both teams will be looking to finish the series on a high and gain momentum ahead of the T20 series. 

Australia VS India: Match Details

  • Date – 2nd December 2020
  • Time – 9:10 AM 
  • Venue – Manuka Oval, Canberra 

Australia VS India Match Preview:

Australian batting has been in terrific form this series. Aaron Finch has found his form back, however, his opening partner David Warner has been ruled out of the limited-overs series. Marnus Labuschagne will most likely be opening the batting in this game. Glenn Maxwell has played two powerful cameos in both games and will once again play an important role at the back end of the innings. Steve Smith will be the key player in this match as well. 


Josh Hazlewood has been in great touch with the ball in the two matches this series. With no Pat Cummins in this match, Andrew Tye will mostly be added to the playing XI. 

Indian batting has done a decent job in both the matches. Mayank Agarwal has played two cameo innings while opening the batting and would want to play a long inning in this game. Virat Kohli batted well in the last match but couldn't take the team home. Hardik Pandya has done a good job with the bat and will be the key player for India. 

The bowling has been disappointing in this series. None of the bowlers have been able to put pressure on the opposition. Yuzvendra Chahal, who has had two off games, might make way for Kuldeep Yadav in this match. T Natarajan could replace Navdeep Saini to add variety to the Indian attack. 

India, having already lost the series, will be looking to play for the pride, and gain momentum before the start of the T20 series. Australia will be looking to whitewash India and finish the series on a high.
