Ind v Aus, 5th ODI: Delhi rains may play spoilsport at decider game

ind v aus

India and Australia are all set to lock horns for the fifth and the last ODI of Australia’s tour to India series. This time, it is the national capital, Delhi which will host the last ODI. With both the teams having two matches on each side, this is the match which will decide as to who will have the last laugh and who will make several changes on their team squad after analyzing the entire series.

This match is more like a warm up for India before they head to the World Cup 2019 and Kohli and his boys will look forward to registering a perfect win on this one. There won’t be any scope for failures this time. It is a do or die situation, and Kohli, Dhoni and the other men in blue will make no mistake to win this one.

On the other side, Aaron Finch and his Aussie lads are hungry enough to take the baton in their hands. Australia is no doubt at its best form and the players both with the bat and ball have been doing well enough. Hundreds have become an easy target for the openers, the middle order is also not a disappointing lot.

Team Changes

India has already lost the toss at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium and the guests have decided to bat first giving Kohli the chance to chase and make sixes and fours rain through his bat. KL Rahul and Yazuvendra Chahal have been dropped while Sir Jadeja along with Mohammad Shami have been given a spot in the playing XI.

For this match, Australia have given off spinner Nathan Lyon a spot and dropped Jason Behrendorff while Shaun Marsh has been dropped and Marcus Stoinis has been brought on board.

Weather Forecast

While India and Australia may be ready with all guns blazing, rain gods in Delhi have different plans this time. Currently, Delhi is observing overcast sky conditions and Delhi rains may play spoilsport during the late evening hours which means some disruption is expected. There may be slight disruptions but a washout is not likely. However, if a D/L method comes into play, since India is batting second, the host nation will be the sufferer due to a specific target being set.
