India vs Australia 5th ODI

India vs Australia Live Cricket Score: India vs Australia 5th ODI will be played at Firoz Shah Kotla Stadium Delhi. Both teams are on equal phase with 2-2 in the series. In such a scenario, the eyes of both the teams will be on winning the last match and also over the series. At the breathtaking innings of Ashton Turner in the fourth ODI played in Mohali, Australia created a record of chasing highest score in India and with this they equaled themselves in the series. Turner debuted in the same series against India in Hyderabad in ODI. Turner, as a finisher in domestic cricket, has raised new concerns for the Indian team.

India’s strong bowling attack couldn’t defend a huge total in Mohali. It is rare to see that the Indian bowlers have got so many runs, but in the last two games, Australia has presented the status of this exception in front of Indian skipper Virat Kohli. In this finale, Kohli will have to worry that his bowlers will be able to curb Australian batsmen.

1:10 PM IST- Some Interesting Points about this match

If India lose the series, it will be their first ODI series defeat at home since losing 3-2 to South Africa in October 2015.

There have been only four previous instances of a team winning a series after being 0-2 down: SA vs Pak in 2003, Ban vs Zim in 2005, Pak vs Ind in 2005 and SA vs Eng in 2016.

Rohit Sharma needs 46 more runs to the milestone of 8000 runs. If he gets there in his next innings, he will be the joint third fastest to the landmark.

1:05 PM IST- Probable XI: Aaron Finch (c), Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell, Ashton Turner, Alex Carey (wk), Pat Cummins, Jhye Richardson, Adam Zampa, Jason Behrendorff/Nathan Lyon

1:00 PM IST- Probable XI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah

12:00 PM IST- Kohli stated in his pre-series presser that performances in the upcoming season of IPL will not influence selection for the World Cup team. At face value, that statement leaves India with this one ODI to create a mental pecking order. Rahul or Rayudu? Pant or Karthik?
