The 3-match ODI series between Australia and India will conclude on Wednesday where the two sides face off at the Canberra’s Manuka Oval. Australia, fresh of their first ODI series win in three years, will be hoping to finish with yet another win and take a lead in the ODI Super League table. But they will be missing the services of David Warner in the final ODI due to an injury. The Indian team will be hoping to earn a consolation win and avoid the follow-on in this process.

Here are the key stats and numbers ahead of the final game of the ODI series in Canberra:

1 – If Australia wins the final ODI, it will be the first time Australia would have whitewashed India in the ODI format. The only bilateral ODI series against Australia where India failed to win a game was during the 5-match ODI series at home in 1984. Australia won three matches during that series while another two games ended without a result.

One the other hand, Aaron Finch struck two centuries across the four ODIs he played in Canberra scoring 273 runs at an average of 68.25.

6-0 – Australia has won all the six International matches they played at the Manuka Oval in Canberra including four ODI games. India, on the other hand, lost both the games they played at this venue during the ODI format – by 8 wickets vs SL in 2008 and by 25 runs vs AUS in 2020.
