After decimating Australia in the first two ODIs of the series, India will aim to get the job done in the final ODI to whitewash the visiting team. The likes of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Kuldeep Yadav are expected to make their return to the playing XI while Shubman Gill is likely to take a break.
When it comes to Australia, the Kangaroos have experimented with a lot of things in the series but are likely to field a full-strength squad for the final ODI. Skipper Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Marsh and Glenn Maxwell are expected to make their return to the squad. Hence, the team will be aiming to give their all with the hope of bouncing back.
Meanwhile, a lot of focus will be on Shreyas Iyer and Ravichandran Ashwin in Rajkot. The middle-order batter hit a cracking century in the last match but injured his wrist in the process. There is no update on his injury and hence, it’ll be interesting to see if the cricketer makes it to the playing XI. On the other hand, with Kuldeep Yadav set to return, Ravichandran Ashwin may lose his spot. He picked up three wickets in the last match and looked dangerous but since he is not part of the World Cup squad, the team management may not try him in the middle.
