The Australian team defeated India in the 4th ODI and aim to win the series in the final match. The last ODI of the ongoing series will be crucial for both the teams as Aaron Finch & Co aim to win the final match ahead of the 2019 World Cup.
On the other side, the Virat Kohli-led Indian team wants to bounce back very strongly and the team management is looking forward to take revenge against the Men-in-Yellow (Australia) in the 5th 50-overs match. Let us have a look at the probable playing XI for the series decider between India and Australia.
India's Probable Playing XI
Rohit Sharma (opener), Shikhar Dhawan (opener), Virat Kohli (top- order batsman), KL Rahul (middle order batsman), Rishabh Pant (batsman/wicket-keeper), Kedar Jadhav(all-rounder), Vijay Shankar (all-rounder), Yuzvendra Chahal (spinner), Kuldeep Yadav (spinner), Bhuvneshwar Kumar (fast bowler) and Jasprit Bumrah (fast bowler).
Australia's Probable Playing XI
Aaron Finch (opener), Usman Khawaja (opener), Shaun Marsh (top order batsman), Peter Handscomb (middle-order batsman), Glenn Maxwell (middle order batsman), Ashton Turner (middle order batsman), Alex Carey (wicket-keeper), Pat Cummins (fast bowler), Jhye Richardson (fast bowler), Lyon (spinner) and Adam Zampa (spinner).
The 22-yard Feroz Shah Kotla strip seems like a good pitch for both the batsmen and bowlers, but normally Indian pitches doesn't favour for the fast bowlers too much. The average score for the first innings is 233 and the average score for the 2nd innings is 211 on this venue.
Most of the Indian players are in exceptional form except Yuzvendra Chahal and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Both the bowlers were failed to pick wickets at the regular intervals and leaked more runs in the 4th One-Day-International. Coming to the hosts, all the players are in good form as they levelled the 5-match series 2-2.
The 5th ODI match between India and Australia begins at 1:30 PM in New Delhi on March 13.
