For the last time in the ODI series, Virat Kohli & Co. are going to lock horns with the Australian Cricket Team in Nagpur on October 1. Team India already had captured the series by 3-0 after winning the games held in Chennai, Kolkata, and Indore. However, the face-off in Bangalore saw a totally different Australian team. Firstly, their openers throttled the Chinnaswamy Stadium with their batting and then shook the team India by their bowling. On the other hand, skipper Virat Kohli’s experiment with his bench strength, especially bowlers, didn’t work out properly. As a result, the highest total of this series was set by the visiting team and now the series score is 3-1.
Now, in the last ODI, Virat Kohli will surely look forward to closing the series on a winning note and make the final score 4-1.

Australia: After a 10-match overseas losing streak, the Steve Smith-led side finally won their 11th rubber in Bangalore. Ashton Agar has returned and Andrew Tye has taken his place in the team. The top order is intact and delivering well and the way bowlers performed in the last match, it will be interesting to see whether Steven Smith will go for any change in the playing XI or not.

India: Skipper Virat Kohli has to think about the playing XI once again for the final showdown. In the previous game, his experiment with his bench strength – dropping Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, and Jasprit Bumrah and picking Mohammad Shami, Umesh Yadav, and Axar Patel – wasn’t that helpful. Hence, it seems that the Team might have some changes.

India: To win the last ODI, the key bowlers – Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, back in the squad as they have gained the trick to clinch wickets when it’s needed the most. Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane are in good forms and so is Hardik Pandya. Good news for the team is Kedar Jadhav has made a good comeback in the previous game.
Australia: In Indore, Aaron Finch scored a century while in Bangalore, Warner hit a ton. Both the batters are the key for the visitors to give them a good start. In the middle-order, Glen Maxwell is the key player to watch out for. The bowling department will rely on pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, and Kane Richardson to rattle the India line-up.
India: Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Ajinkya Rahane, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (WK), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami.
