India vs Australia Match Prediction, Who Will Win 5th ODI? The 5th ODI match between India vs Australia is all set to take place on Sunday, 1 October 2017 at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Ground, Nagpur. Australia bounces back in the 4th ODI and defeats India. Ausiees will look to win the 5th ODI and save their pride before going into the Ashes. Australia has failed to cross even 300 in the series before 4th and still their main concern is middle order who failed to perform on the tour so far.
India already won the series and has taken a 3-1 lead in the ODI series. Virat Kohli and co. have won their last nine ODIs while Australia, on the other hand, has lost 11 ODIs away except last ODI played in Bengaluru. All-rounder Hardik Pandya has shine in the series who did well with both ball and bat. Australia will look to bounce back strongly in the 4th ODI.
All the eyes will be on Steve Smith who will be playing his 100th ODI when he steps in Kolkata. Australia would look to bounce back in the 2nd ODI and level the series 1-1. In order to do so, Australian top order has to perform while bowling department led by Marcus Stoinis, Adam Zampa and James Faulkner needs much more consistency to restrict Indian batting below 250.
The Indian team is doing a great job under the captaincy of Virat Kohli. Team Indian would look to win the 4th ODI and whitewash the series but top-order form would be important in the fourth ODI as everything time we cannot expect Dhoni and Pandya to do this job.
