AUS vs IND 3rd ODI Dream11 Prediction | Match Preview | India tour of Australia 2020-21

Hello and welcome to our AUS vs IND Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Australia and India will clash against each other in the 3rd ODI of the series at Manuka Oval, Canberra.


The Australian team continues their dominance over team India as they clinch the series 2-0 with still a match left. They won the last ODI comfortably by 51 runs.

Both the openers David Warner and Aaron Finch, have continued their good form as they both scored half-centuries and put up a partnership of 142 runs for the 1st wicket in the 2nd ODI.

Steve Smith and Maxwell repeated the same performance as that of 1st ODI. Smith scored a Century in just 62 balls, and Maxwell scored 63* runs from 29 balls. Marnus Labuschagne also joined the party by playing sensibly and scored 70 runs from 61 balls.

The bowlers conceded a fair amount of runs, but at the same time, they managed to pick up wickets at the right time and did not allow the opposition to build a significant partnership. Josh Hazlewood bowled brilliantly, picking up early wickets early in the match and bowling well in the death overs.

Moises Henriques and Adam Zampa did an excellent job by picking up wickets and, at the same time controlling the flow of runs. Australia would want to continue their winning momentum in the 3rd ODI and target whitewash the series.


The Indian team once again looked clueless as their bowlers were getting hit all over the park, and the opposition posted a massive target of 389 runs in the 2nd ODI.

Only Jadeja and Hardik Pandya maintained six runs, and Pandya managed to pick up the crucial wicket of Steve Smith, but Jadeja went wicketless. Saini and Chahal were very expensive in this match also and went wicketless.

The current best Indian bowlers Mohammad Shami and Jasprit Bumrah also gave away a fair amount of runs but managed to pick up one wicket each.

Shikhar Dhawan and Mayank Agarwal once again gave a good start as they added 58 runs for the 1st wicket in just 7.4 overs, but they both got out in quick sessions, and team India was pushed on to the back foot.

Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer tried to build the innings in the middle overs and put up a decent partnership, but Iyer got out trying to play a big shot. Kohli played well, almost scoring a hundred but got out at 89 runs. KL Rahul also batted exceptionally well, and he, too, scored a half-century.

In the end, Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya tried to play big shots and gave the hope that India still had a chance of winning the match, but both of them got out in two balls, and the game was over for India.

India would want to lose three ODi’s in a row and save themselves from being whitewashed in this series.
