IND vs AUS Halaplay Prediction | India vs Australia 5th ODI Match Preview | Fantasy Team & Team News
The one day international series between India and Australia has gone right down to the wire. The 5-match series is tied 2-2 and the winner of the final game takes it all. India must be disappointed to have missed out on wrapping up the series earlier as they lead 2-0 after first two games. Their rivals, Australia, will now be hoping to win the third consecutive match to win the series.
Take nothing away from the quality of Australia, but India should be winning tournaments on their home soil. Earlier, Australia had defeated India in both the T20s to complete a clean sweep in that series. The home team showed immediate improvement by winning the first two games of the ODI series and they looked to be cruising. However, a resurgent Australia pegged India back with two consecutive wins at Ranchi and Mohali.
India will be aware of the consequences should they fail to register a win in Delhi tomorrow. Understandably, the series will be branded as a failure and it would have a negative impact on the morale of the squad so close to the ICC Cricket World cup.
Two wins on the turn have shifted the balance of the series towards the visitors. Australia have grown in the series and they showed it in the last match when they chased down a mammoth total of 358. The Aussies will now look to make the most of the momentum and win the third game and the series. They will take confidence from the fact that their batsmen and bowlers have delivered time and again.
