India vs Australia, 4th ODI
March 10, 2019
Punjab Cricket Association - Mohali, India
After winning the first two games of the 5-match series, the Indian team faced defeat in the third game, as the Aussie openers came out all guns blazing to thwart the Indian bowling attack. Hence, with the series still in balance, both sides will go for the kill - India to seal the series and Australia to draw level.
A number of changes can be expected from the hosts though in the fourth ODI. MS Dhoni has already been rested for the last two matches, which means that Rishabh Pant is likely to be the keeper. Shami was seen limping in the third clash, and it is likely that he will be rested at Mohali, which might open the doors for Bhuvneshwar Kumar. With the Indian bowling looking lackluster at Ranchi, Chahal might be slotted in for Jadeja, while there might be a toss up between KL Rahul and Dhawan.
