Cricket News: Australia vs India, 3rd ODI Match, Preview, squads news & Pitch report
It seemed like the only way to interrupt his net session on Tuesday was for Marnus Labuschagne (December 1). But even though all the others in the Australian camp fled to cover up from the Manuka Oval’s thunderstorm, the disastrous war was slowly dragging away. Labuschagne also paused, gazing at the dark celestial heavens, and clung his arms as if he were complaining to the stars.
For around an hour and a half, Australia had been in the field of practise. Obviously, Labuschagne took over Steve Smith’s networks after the two-centurion of the series eventually left the premises. And when the Canberra weather turned drastically, he had to face some very lively downs from a sponsored staff member. Next to him was Cameron Green a handy coach from Justin Langer, who had a lively conversation with him about the hitting areas from far.
Purely because Labuschagne had just begun facing a few minutes before the storm, you wonder if he prepared himself for the chance to fight at the top of the order. And if his annoyance was unceremoniously disrupted with his routine as well. Still, given the decision by skiparer Aaron Finch to remain uncompromising, we have to wait until Wednesday (December 2) at night. David Warner’s absence could also open up the door to Matthew Wade and even Young Green. But it ensures that Labuschagne retains its middle order role.
Like the Australians, even the Indians boarded a bus from the northeastern outskirts of Mumbai, Ghatkopar in particular, to Pune on Monday morning, arrived three hours later – at the same time you can drive from.
Australia is thinking of finding the right partner with which to open skipper Finch, India should strive to take advantage of this unique opportunity to start her journey with something dead but with much in jeopardy. As with Finch, the likes of Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan also recall a lot of play in the Manuka Oval, from a narrow loss of four years ago. However a strong show with the ball is what both teams are looking for even though Canberra isn’t the ideal bowling place for the recovery. Before it even seemed to start for the indians, the show may have been lost. While Wednesday’s cliché approach may concentrate on ‘playing for pride,’ with Down Under still a month and a half ahead of them, Virat Kohli & Co is more of a chance to take the Aussies by storm and throw the gauntlet into the other two formats on tour.
Toss will be updated soon……
Match: Australia vs India
Series: India tour of Australia, 2020-21
Date: Wednesday, December 02, 2020
Time: 14:40 local / 03:40 GMT / 08:40 PST
Venue: Manuka Oval, Canberra
Weather and Pitch Conditions:
Like the thunderstorm on Tuesday, on the Manuka Oval slope, the ball comes and leaves the bat very easily. And it was the bowlers and the campers who had to chase the leather traditionally. Finch showed that the wicket’s bounce and pace could potentially support new-ball wickets, both teams struggling to produce. The weather is supposed to be fairly good for the game on the second official day of the summer, with temperatures around the mid 20s, which will ideally result in less drink breaks and a better overview of both parties.
Today’s Playing XI:
Aaron Finch (c), Matthew Wade/Cam Green, Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschange, Moises Henriques, Alex Carey (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Sean Abbott, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa
