AUS vs IND today match prediction: Australians have wrapped up the series after outplaying India in the batting department in 2 consecutive games. The first 2 one dayers are the perfect example of batting a team out of the match and Australia did that to precision. Steve Smith has been playing like a dream and he looks unstoppable at the moment. Literally, no Indian bowlers troubled him in the 2 matches except for Hardik Pandya who was the only bowler to read the pitch conditions better than any other bowler.
India don’t really have a problem of plenty to be very honest. There is nothing much a captain or a coach can do when their best available resources don’t perform to their potential. The likes of Yuzvendra Chahal and Jasprit Bumrah were clueless in the first 2 games and them not picking wickets and not being economical has cost them the game big time.
Lets take a look at the AUS vs IND dream11 prediction
In AUS vs IND today match prediction, lets take a look at the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides
The batting trio of Steve Smith, Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell after a horror IPL have found their mojo back and are thrashing the Indian bowling to all corners of the ground. It’s just a matter of time for Josh Hazelwood to enter into the top 5 rankings for ODI bowlers.
Virat Kohli played a significant knock in the 2nd ODI though it didn’t give the feel of Vintage Virat Kohli. India's lower middle order looks in good shape with both KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya in good form.
Their 5th bowling quota might backfire if their new ball bowlers don’t give them early wickets. It will also be interesting to see how they perform when chasing a target.
They are just not picking wickets in the middle overs which is giving them all the troubles in the world. The another important problem is no one except Ravindra Jadeja are economical and the pressure built by Ravindra Jadeja at one end has been released at the other end. Mayank Agarwal should really carry on after getting good starts.

Let’s point out the important players from both sides in AUS vs IND dream11 prediction section
Steve Smith: He has become a freak which is his usual self after a disappointing IPL. He has scored 2 back to back centuries in 62 balls and has left India in tatters. He should be the first name in any fantasy team
Aaron Finch: He is starting off the blocks in a slow fashion but he is making sure that he is not going to the pavilion without significant amount of runs which is all a fantasy player wants.
Virat Kohli: It seemed that Virat Kohli might break his century draught in the 2nd ODI as he looked 60% of his usual self but he got out after making a well made 89. He can be a real handy pick in fantasy teams.
Hardik Pandya: He has started bowling and that will only gradually increase. He is in good nick with the bat. He can be a value added pick
Other picks: Glenn Maxwell, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa and Shikhar Dhawan can all be very good picks for today’s game
Today match score: 300 has become a norm in ODIs and team batting first will look to aim for that.
Today match pitch report: The wicket is again expected to be good for batting.
Who won 2nd ODI: AUS won the game by 51 runs.
