If Australia has to maintain the series's hopes against India, then Australia will have to beat India in the third ODI on Sunday. On the other hand, the eyes of India is on conquering the series by wining the match as well as making many records and history.
India is currently 2-0 ahead in the five-match series and by winning the third match, it would like to achieve an unbeatable lead. India have not lost any ODIs at the Holkar stadium in Indore and would like to win the match and want to create a history. If Team India won this match, it would be his fifth consecutive win at the Holkar stadium and this would be his first chance of winning the first five matches at a stadium.
The Indian team is not expected to change in this match. Manish Pandey has consistently failed in both the matches, so if the team management made the mood of change, then K L Rahul could get a place in his place. Apart from this, there will be no change happening.
On the other hand, the Australians, who lost both the matches, will be strengthened by Aaron Finch's return. Finch did not play in both the matches due to a shin injury. He will be included in the playing eleven instead of Hilton Cartwright. Another shocking change would be to include Peter Handscomb in place of Matthew Wade. The team will now ask Handscomb to take on the responsibility of the wicket keeping in this match. In view of the helpful pitches of batsmen at the
Holkar stadium, Adam Zampa can be dropped by Ashton Agar.
India has never won three consecutive matches in a series against Australia earlier than this. If Team India won the match on Sunday, it would make this record, because it will be the third consecutive win in this series.
India has never won four consecutive ODIs against Australia. He has so far won three or three matches against India in different series / tournaments on three separate occasions. India had defeated Australia in ODIs in Sydney in 2016 and after that they have won the first two matches in this series. If India won the third match, it would be his fourth consecutive win and history would be made.
Pitch will prove helpful to the batsmen: On Saturday, Indore's season was completely cleared, due to which there was no problem in the practice sessions of both the teams. The pitch will prove to be helpful for the batsmen and for the first time in this series, there is a possibility of a score of more than 300. According to the experts, there will be no interference due to the weather in the match.

India: Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (captain), Manish Pandey / KL Rahul, Kedar Jadhav, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yajuwendra Chahal, Jaspreet Bumrah.
