In each of the three ODI’s the batting has been tremendous from both the teams, the curators of the pitches also needs to be thanked for that. Both these teams have scored 300 plus runs with ease.

Australia snatched victory from India in the 3rd ODI by chasing 304 runs. They needed 54 runs to win the match in the last three overs. Then came Ishant Sharma to bowl the 47th over in which he gave away 30 runs and the match was lost from there.
Despite of his poor form, Ishant Sharma was picked for the remaining matches of the series. Instead Zaheer Khan could have been picked.
On the weather front, there is bad news. Rain is forecast in Ranchi on Thursday afternoon with scattered rain. It could be a truncated match or a complete washout. The D/L method is going to come in play for sure. Lets hope rain keeps away on Thursday.
