Ind Vs Aus 4th ODI Live Score here:
Kohli’s 41st ODI went in vain and Australia came back in series with a bang. The next match is on sunday March 10, 2019 at the PCA stadium Mohali. India is still leading the series though by a margin of 2-1 but the form their middle order should start worrying them now. It has been happening too often that India’s middle order is not coming good in crunch situations.
The form of the openers will also be a concern for Skipper Kohli but on the other side Australia will love the fact that their Skipper and opener Aaron Finch is back amongst runs. FInch and Khawaja who scored his maiden hundred in Ranchi put on a 193 run opening stand which was the difference between the sides.

Australia 313/5 (50 Overs) India 281/10 (48.2 Overs)
Khawaja – 104, Finch 93. Kuldeep Yadav 64/3
Kohli – 123, Cummins 37/3, Richardson 37/3, Zampa 70/3
Match Preview :
We are in the town of Ranchi for the third ODI between India and Australia. India are leading the series by a margin of 2-0. It was not as if Australia did not had a chance in both the ODIs but it was at the crucial moments in the game that India upstaged Australia. Virat Kohli is back to doing what he does best and that is scoring hundreds. Bumrah is someone who may not be more important but is as important to India’s bowling plans as Kohli is to India’s batting. The last couple of Overs that he bowled in the second one-dayer were the best death bowling you would have ever seen by an Indian bowler. He is doing it match after match and that proves that it is not a fluke.
On the other side Aussies will be highly disappointed by the manner they lost the second one-dayer. At one point of time, they were in need of 33 runs from 34 balls with 5 wickets in hand. They would still be getting their head around the fact that how they ended up losing the game from there. Alex Carey was bowled sweeping Kuldeep. Bumrah then took out Coulter Nile and Pat Cummins in an over. Stoinis played out Bumrah so that he can take on other bowlers but in the process, the run rate went too high for comfort.
Australia will be looking to win this match and keep the series alive. Aaron Finch will hope that runs will keep coming from his blade. India will also be thinking that the batting returns to his merrier ways.
