India vs Australia 2019, 3rd ODI – Statistical Preview
Here are all the key stats and numbers ahead of a do-or-die game for Australia in Ranchi.
India stands one step away from clinching their 3rd consecutive ODI series against Australia after a close 8-run win in Nagpur. Virat Kohli’s century gave India a defendable total and his bowlers did not disappoint him by pulling back the things in the last six overs. The Aaron Finch-led side now faces a must-win situation as they need to win the remaining three matches to register their maiden ODI series in the last 25 months.
