In the absence of Hardik Pandya, India have used a full-time seamer as their fifth bowling option both at the Sydney Cricket Ground and the Adelaide Oval. The men in blue will be eyeing their first ever ODI series win Down Under while the hosts will be looking to bounce back from their defeat in the last game and clinch their first ODI series win in nearly two years.

When is the third ODI between India and Australia?

Dhawan added that the pressure the bowlers were placing on the Australians at the top of the order meant they were not capitalising on the fielding restrictions during the first 10-over power-play. Between Khaleel Ahmed and Mohammad Siraj, the third seamer has gone for 131 runs off 18 overs. With Virat Kohli not keen on bowling Ambati Rayudu again in the series, they need to get their five-bowler attack right on the money.

Yuzvendra Chahal and Vijay Shankar sitting in the ranks could well force a case of selection in front of the skipper Virat Kohli.

Before concluding the interview, Chahal asked his captain to promote his show and once again, Kohli's humour came to the fore. Adelaide's temperature on Tuesday was soaring during the match and players looked exhausted with Dhoni being no exception.

India, on the other hand, will have some momentum going to this game, courtesy of the Adelaide win.

But then plenty has changed for India and Australia in the last 11 years. He already has a century and half-century in the first two games this series.

Pant, who made his Test debut against England past year, has cemented his place in the Test squad. The hosts have brought in leg-spinner Adam Zampa and lanky fast bowler Billy Stanlake for Nathan Lyon and Jason Behrendorff respectively. "Maybe I've been too tentative in the last couple of games, letting a bit of pressure build up", Finch said.

Australia (Final XI): Aaron Finch (c), Alex Carey (wk), Peter Handscomb, Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Peter Siddle, Billy Stanlake, Marcus Stoinis, Adam Zampa.
