Australia won a much needed toss to go on the front foot in the third ODI at Indore, opting to bat first forcing the Indian fielders to spend time under the hot sun in Madhya Pradesh.

India were unsurprisingly unchanged heading into this game on the back of an impressive run of 8 straight wins, with Virat Kohli also chasing his 6th consecutive ODI series win as Indian skipper.

Australia made two changes to their side for the game with Aaron Finch replacing Hilton Cartwright at the top of the order, while Peter Handscomb will strengthen the middle order drastically as he takes over wicketkeeping duties from Matthew Wade.

The Teams:

Australia: David Warner, Aaron Finch, Steven Smith (c), Travis Head, Peter Handscomb (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kane Richardson, Ashton Agar

India: Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah
