The three-match ODI series between India and Australia will come to a close when the two teams will square off on Wednesday. It will be the series decider with it currently standing evenly poised at 1-1. While India won the first ODI by five wickets, Australia took home the second game by ten wickets. Now, the final match will be played on 22 March which will decide the fate of the series. While India will look to put behind the defeat in the last game and turn up with full intensity, Australia will look to dominate the proceedings as they did in the last match.
The two matches played so far have seen many eye-catching performances. The top two among those came in the second ODI. Mitchell Starc’s fiery spell and Mitchell Marsh’s blistering half-century are the top two performances of this series. Also, both these players have shown great consistency in the series so far. Therefore, they must be included in the fantasy XI. The other players from the Australian camp who can be included in the fantasy XI are Travis Head, Steve Smith, and Adam Zampa (considering the Chepauk pitch).
From the Indian camp, Virat Kohli looked in control in the last game and hence can be included in the fantasy team. Ravindra Jadeja and KL Rahul are the two other good options. Mohammed Siraj and Hardik Pandya too can be included.
