IND vs AUS Before the third ODI, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Pandya will join Team India in Rajkot today.


Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya will return to the team after missing the first two ODIs against Australia.

With the series won, India will play the third ODI in Rajkot on Wednesday (September 27). Even without Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya, India managed to dominate with both bat and ball. However, the big stars are certain to return for the final ODI. With the World Cup starting in 10 days, Kohli, Rohit and Pandya need game time.

Team India captain Rohit will be in the opening role in place of Ruturaj Gaikwad. CSK batsmen will join team members in China for the Asian Games. Kohli will likely replace Ishan Kishan and Pandya will replace Prasidh Krishna or Ashwin.

Talking about the second ODI, India defeated Australia by 99 runs through Duckworth-Lewis Method (DRS). Shreyas Iyer and Shubman Gill scored brilliant centuries, while spin twins Ravindra Jadeja and Ashwin took three wickets each.

As the two matches took place in Mohali and Indore, the Rajkot pitch is also expected to be a batting belter. India have been completely dominant with the bat in hand, as players like Gill, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav and Kishan have been scoring runs. Iyer’s form is a big boost for India, who are ultimately aiming to solve the No. 4 puzzle.

Rohit and Kohli are sure to be back on top, so Iyer is sure to bat at number four. However, head coach Rahul Dravid might be having some headaches as Suryakumar Yadav is back to his run-scoring ways.

The right-handed batsman has scored two explosive centuries with a strike rate of over 100. Surya’s form before the World Cup will be a huge boost for India. But for now, Dravid has to decide how to include Surya with the return of players like Rohit and Virat.
