India vs Australia 3rd ODI Preview: Virat Kohli will have to do this to avoid a sixth consecutive defeat in ODIs.

The Indian cricket team, which has lost the first two matches of the three ODI series, will take on Manuka Oval on Saturday (2 December) to save the prestige in front of the Australian team. Australia defeated India by 66 runs in the first ODI and 51 runs in the second match. This year has not been good for Virat Kohli-led Team India in ODI cricket. At the beginning of the year, they suffered a 3–0 series loss to New Zealand and now the team has lost two consecutive matches on the Australian tour.

Indian team flopped badly in bowling

Team India has gone with top bowlers like Jaspreet Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Yajuvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav on this tour. The effect of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar not being in the team is visible. Indian bowlers have failed to take wickets in the powerplay. In the last 14 matches, Team India’s bowlers have been able to take wickets in powerplay on only five occasions. Navdeep Saini, who joined the team as the third fast bowler, is badly beaten. Kohli should give youngster T Natarajan a chance to debut in the third ODI. T Natarajan has taken 18 wickets in 16 matches in IPL 2020 and has thrown the most yorkers. He can curb the Australian batsmen in the death overs.

Miss rohit sharma

The Indian cricket team scored 308 runs in the first ODI and 338 runs in the second ODI. Although the team is missing opener Rohit Sharma. Mayank Agarwal, who landed for the opening in the absence of Rohit Sharma, has scored 22 and 28 but he failed to start well with Dhawan. KL Rahul, who is opening for Kings XI Punjab, is batting at number five. He has been very successful at this number in the last few innings. In such a situation, Virat Kohli can give a chance to young player Shubman Gill in the last ODI. Gill has scored more than 400 runs in IPL 2020. He is capable of a long partnership with Dhawan.

Kohli should try Kuldeep instead of Chahal

Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal looked ineffective in both the matches against Australia. Chahal, who gave 89 runs in 10 overs in the first ODI, gave 71 runs in 9 overs in the second ODI. Australian batsmen are playing Chahal’s balls easily. In such a situation, Kohli should give a chance to the Chinese bowler Kuldeep Yadav. Kuldeep, who has taken 104 wickets in 60 ODIs, has taken 22 wickets against Australia.
