The sixth One Day International (ODI) between India and Australia will take place on Wednesday at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Ground in Nagpur, with India finding themselves in a must-win situation in order to avoid a series defeat. A victory for Australia will give them an unassailable lead in the series, while a victory for India would level the series with the seventh and final ODI game to decide the winner.
The weather at Nagpur forecasts partly cloudy skies and a low chance for any sort of precipitation on the day of the game.
India have played a good brand of cricket in the series but would still be reeling from the bowling performance that saw them squander the match at Mohali the previous Saturday. After the two consecutive games with no-result, first at Ranchi due to the wash-out and then at Cuttack without a ball being bowled, India suddenly find themselves in a precarious situation and would need to step-up to the challenge that lies ahead in the remaining two games. MS Dhoni was clearly disappointed after the second abandonment at Cuttack, and had this to say after the game "The weather is not in our control. To some extent you are a bit disappointed, but whatever result it was we have to accept it".
