'Don't fight with Kohli', warns this former Aussie bowler

As it is said, one can not complete the chapter of India Vs Australia series without a spat, rage scenes and some utterly hateful comments.

Finch went on the back-foot and used the long handle to good effect against the spin pair of left-arm wrist spinner (chinaman) Kuldeep Yadav and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.

With an eye on the series win, India face Australia in the third One-Day International (ODI) at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore. So KL Rahul remains in argument, although India is having outstanding Pandey which is worth for the team.

Australia have gone 2-0 down in the series, losing the last match by 50 runs.

Manish Pandey fell shortly after, but Kohli and Kedar Jadhav stabilised the innings with a 55-run stand before Jadhav was dismissed by Nathan Coulter-Nile for 24. In the first two matches, they scored 28 and 7 respectively.

The third ODI between India and Australia will start at 1:30 IST and the toss will happen at 1:00 IST.

India skipper Virat Kohli and Australian wicket-keeper Matthew Wade had a lot to say to each other. The pitch could play better for the batsmen under lights, maybe it will be a little slow during the day when it is dry.

Foreseeing the biggest treat - Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, Australian vice-captain David Warner said his team has a full-proof plan against the Indian spinners.

Following Kohli's dismissal, India began to lose wickets at regular intervals, but with Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya's both scoring 20, India managed to make 252 before being bowled out on the final ball of their innings.

This time Kohli's spat included Aussies' ace bowler Marcus Stoinis and keeper Matthew Wade. Adding to that, Kanpur boy Kuldeep took a hat-trick in Kolkata, while Haryana-hailed Chahal chipped in with two wickets. They either have one match where nobody performs, and they suffer a humiliating loss, or everyone performs and they end up with 350-400 on the board.

Australia finished with 6-293 which the hosts will be confident of chasing down given the short boundaries and favourable batting conditions at Holkar Stadium on Sunday.

The pair of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jaspreet Bumrah have given Team India a lot of success in fast bowling.

For all their batting flaws, India's bowling makes up for it. Virat would like the two bowlers to get wickets in the beginning so that the team continues to dominate the match.
