IND vs AUS Live: Check out team India’s playing XI for the series decider

Live Update: Australia have won the toss and have opted to bat

The third and final One-Day International (ODI) between India and Australia is scheduled for Wednesday at Chennai’s Chepauk Stadium. (March 22). The hosts dominated the first game of the series, but the visitors were ruthless in the next game to exact revenge. Mitchell Starc took five wickets as Rohit Sharma’s Men in Blue were bowled out for 117 runs. Later, Travis Head and Mitchell Marsh humiliated India’s bowling attack as Australia chased their target in 11 overs with 10 wickets in hand.


Rohit Sharma: We were looking to field first. If at all there will be help for the bowlers and we are playing three spinners, in these dry conditions hopefully we can maximise our spin options. It’s an important game and the deciders are always interesting. It’s always good to put us in this situation. It’s a challenge for us to come back and play some good cricket under pressure. Hopefully we can put our best foot forward. Australia are a good team and you can always test your depth. We are playing with the same team. We were thinking of playing with four seamers but the conditions here are suitable for the spinners, so we go with three spinners.

India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma(c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, KL Rahul(w), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj
