Australia vs India 5th ODI Match Highlights Today 1st October 2017
Watch Today’s Cricket Match Highlights match played between India Vs Australia. Today Highlights of Fifth and Final ODI match played at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Jamtha, Nagpur (India) Sunday 1st October 2017.
The VCA Stadium in Jamtha has been a high-scoring venue in ODIs, with six out of seven first innings producing 290-plus scores. But the last ODI at this venue was in October 2013. Since then, the pitch here has tended to be a slow turner, as reflected by recent T20I trends: teams batting first scored 126, 122, 123 and 144 in the last four matches here, and yet only lost once. The square, however, has been relaid since the last T20I here, between India and England in March, and the curator Pravin Hingnikar has promised a “sporting pitch” that would “bring back our lost glory”. Australia left out Glenn Maxwell in Bengaluru, and, while it did not cost them unduly on that occasion, his presence could have prevented their slowdown after India broke their opening stand. They may have a difficult choice to make if they want to bring him back in place of Travis Head, who scored 29 off 38 but contributed usefully with his off-spin. India rested Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah, their two leading ODI quicks, in Bengaluru, and could give Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav another opportunity. KL Rahul has not featured in the series so far – he might get a chance as well.
Australia won the toss and elected to bat.
