India Cricket fights for world title

The India Cricket team and the Australia Cricket team meets for the decider match of their ODI series, after the two teams tied the series. During the 1st ODI, it was India who took the victory. India won by five wickets, which could have built a momentum for them. However, during the 2nd ODI, it was Australia who took the victory, as they are just too much for India. Australia then doubled those five wickets to get the victory for the 2nd ODI. The winners of this series will have the chance to fight for the title of the World’s number one ODI squad. India will host this match on March 22, 2023, at 4:00 PM (GMT+8).

During the two previous legs, these two teams have shown not just their strengths, but their weaknesses as well. As they battle in a match that will determine the winner, they need to address their issues in order to ensure a win. These two teams have played 145 ODI matches already, but there are no ties in those matches. It was the visitors who has a clear advantage when they go against each other, winning 81 matches already. The hosts on the other hand have won only 54 of those matches, while the remaining 10 has no results. Their first meeting was recorded back in 1980.

During the 2nd ODI, India’s bowling is far different from their performance in the 1st ODI, where they eventually won. Their bowling in the 2nd ODI, looks pretty weak, but this is not surprising though. On that match, they do not have much to defend, which is why they were not able to be as powerful as they were in the 1st ODI. Coming into this game, the India Cricket squad is looking to deliver the same performance during the 1st ODI. This is what they need because the 3rd ODI is already a decider match, and many needs to step-up for them. Their batting unit especially, needs to step up for their squad, for them to tame the powerful Australian team. KL Rahul is expected to lead the Indian squad, after he played a winning knock of 75 on their 1st ODI.

Australia Cricket team shocked the Indians with their performance during the 2nd ODI, which eventually resulted to a tied series. They have proved that they were able to work on their issues, and adjusted the way they play. Additionally, things are looking pretty good for them, before heading into the World Cup later this year. Their dominance in the 2nd ODI threatens the chances of India, as they showed the reason why they dominated their previous matches. The Australians smashed 121 runs in just 11 overs, eventually giving them a win by 10 wickets in the 2nd ODI. Mitchell Marsh is expected to lead Australia as he have been in an excellent form in this series. It is no longer surprising to see his dominance in this series, as he is a top-order batter.
