3rd ODI Ground Or Venue-

Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne is the most iconic ground in the history of cricket. After a long time, since January 2015 Melbourne Cricket Ground is going to host the Indian cricket team in an ODI.

The weather condition on the ground mixed up as the temperatures have been mounting in Australia, and the heat wave may possibly carry on. Even though on Friday, 18th January 2019, it may perhaps be cloudy and there are also little chances of thunderstorms too.

Playing XI Updates-

Team India

Talking about team India, so, India would be reassured after M.S Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik’s still and composed line of attack on the way to the end of the game. From the last match on Tuesday, it was obvious that Ambati Rayudu hasn’t been in his best form and had rough innings in the previous match. In all possibility, he should recollect his spot with the supervision placing enormous confidence in Rayudu over the last few months. If any change could have made then Jadhav should be given his position with his offspin also upcoming in within reach. On the other hand, Siraj made a forgetful first appearance and should make the approach for Khaleel Ahmed.

According to us the possible XI should be Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (Captain), Ambati Rayudu/ Kedar Jadhav, M.S Dhoni(Wicket Keeper), Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik, Bhuvi, Mohammed Shami, Khaleel, and Kuldeep Yadav.

Team Australia

Talking about team Australia, so, Right-arm fast Bowler Billy Stanlake may possibly replace his fellow teammate Peter Siddle incoming match. Peter Siddle has not taken any wicket so far in the series and the performance is also average so this step might get taken. Glenn Maxwell is doing a fair role in the batting department and gave a real push to their team scores in the last ten overs. Adam Zampa could also be in conflict to substitute Nathan Lyon. Another concern for team Australia might be Aaron Finch’s form which is not helping their team but he might be beholding the opportunity to give his great contribution at his home ground.

According to us the possible XI should be Aaron Finch (Captain), Alex Carey (Wicket Keeper), Shaun Marsh, Jhye Richardson, Peter Handscomb, Marcus Stoinis, Jason Behrendorff, Usman Khawaja, Glenn Maxwell, Nathan Lyon/ Adam Zampa and Peter Siddle/ Billy Stanlake.

Fantasy Suggestions:

Wicket keeper: If we talk about wicketkeeper then, both M.S Dhoni as well as Alex Carey have done clear justice to their spot and are great options to choose for with the concluding scoring back to back the fifties too.

All-rounders: If we talk about All-rounders then, both Ravindra Jadeja and Marcus Stoinis proved their ability and talent with brilliant scores, they both are on their good form.

Bowlers: If we talk about Bowlers then, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Jhye Richardson and Jason Behrendorff are the ideal set of great bowlers to opt.

Batsmen: If we talk about batsman then, both Virat Kohli and Shaun Marsh has scored wonderful hundreds in the earlier matches. Both of them appear very certain at the crease and will be in the picture to score more runs in the next match. Other than them you can also opt for Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Aaron Finch and Peter Handscomb.

We came up with two fantasy suggestions and those are:

First Recommendation: Virat Kohli (Captain), M.S Dhoni(Wicket Keeper), Shikhar Dhawan, Shaun Marsh, Aaron Finch, Marcus Stoinis,  Peter Handscomb, Ravindra Jadeja, Jason Behrendorff, Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammad Shami.

Second Recommendation: Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), Alex Carey(Wicket Keeper), Virat Kohli, Kuldeep Yadav, Aaron Finch, Ravindra Jadeja, Shaun Marsh, Jason Behrendorff, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Jhye Richardson and Marcus Stoinis.
