AUS vs IND Fantasy Prediction: Australia vs India 3rd ODI – 2 December (Canberra). The hosts would aim for a clean-sweep in this game.
Hosts Australia will take on India in the 3rd ODI match of the three games ODI series. Two heavyweights are up against each other but, this has been a one-sided series so far.
Australia have already won the series and would aim for a white-wash. The likes of David Warner and Pat Cummins are going to miss the entire white-ball leg from now on. The batsmen are in a brilliant form, whereas the bowlers also have been fairly decent. This team is looking solid and, a white-wash is certainly on the cards.
India have been flat in the series so far and, they need to win this game to avoid a white-wash. The batsmen are performing decently but, the bowlers have been dreadful in the series. Bumrah and Shami have been poor in the powerplay overs whereas, Chahal has also been flat. This is not going to be an easy game for the Indians.
