India will face off against Australia in the 3rd and final One-day international match to be played at SCA Stadium, Rajkot on 27th September 2023. Both teams will see the return of their key bowlers as Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins will play their 3rd One-day international match.
On the other hand, India has rested Mohammed Shami for this encounter. Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, and Kuldeep Yadav will return to the playing XI and will be looking to showcase their talent before the 2023 WC warm-up games begin.
Here we look at the 3 Probable Leading Wicket Takers In the 3rd ODI Between India and Australia
- Mohammed Siraj
The number-ranked One-day international bowler Mohammed Siraj will return to the playing XI after not being included in the first matches of the series. He would high on confidence after picking 6 wickets for 21 runs during the Asia Cup finals against Sri Lanka.
Siraj will play a key role in picking early wickets putting pressure on the Australian batting lineup. His ability to swing the ball would make him a dangerous bowler to face. His performance with the new ball would ensure that he can do the damage and keep the pressure on the Australian top order.
If he proves his worth again, it will create confidence ahead of the warm-up games against England and Netherlands before the main round begins from 5th October.
- Mitchell Starc
Mitchell Starc would be eager to perform well for Australia in the 3rd One-day international. He missed the first two matches due to injuries. The left-arm pacer has a great record in One-day internationals against India.
His inclusion in the playing XI would boost the Australian bowling lineup who looked clueless in the first One-day internationals. Starc would be eager to prove his fitness with a superb bowling effort in the final match and gain confidence ahead of warm-up games.
Starc can trouble any batting lineup in the world. He would be hopeful to prove his bowling fitness before the World Cup begins.
- Kuldeep Yadav
The left-arm chinaman will also return to the Indian squad for this encounter. He was also not included in the playing XI for the first two matches of the series as Rohit Sharma did not want to expose him before World Cup 2023.
Kuldeep has a great tournament during the Asia Cup 2023 picking up 9 wickets including 5 wickets against Pakistan and 4 wickets against Sri Lanka. His bowling has improved a lot and would look to do the same in the 3rd One-day international match.
He would be looking to continue his sensational form with another superb bowling and help Team India register a whitewash over Australia in the ODI format.
