The strength of Team India lies in its batting which they have rightly proven in the first 2 matches and their weakness in the bowling lineup has been exposed by Australian top order beautifully.
see: Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh.
Captain Dhoni himself has agreed in the post-match presentation after 2nd ODI that their bowling is not strong enough to defend a total around 310 and they need to score at least 340 odd.
The main concern for team India is the form of opener S Dhawan who is running out of form from quite a time now. He would be looking to score some runs now in his second home. The ground of MCG is quite lucky for Rohit Sharma, who has scored centuries twice here in his previous 3 outings.
The visitng team will be in happy mood before getting on to the field as they will be the number 1 team in the ICC Test Rankings as South Africa have lost to England in the ongoing test series.
The hosts will look to continue their dominance in the 3rd game as well and look to seal the series. They will look to bring the star all-rounder M Marsh back in the team who was rested for the 2nd match.
India will be also looking to bring B Kumar in the team instead of I Sharma who didn’t impressed with his performance. The track at MCG is producing lots of runs, which could be witnessed in the BBL matches which were played here.
