India vs Australia 3rd ODI at Melbourne: FPJ’s dream 11 prediction for India and Australia

Buoyant and self-assured in equal measure, India would be eyeing a maiden bilateral ODI series triumph on Australian soil after the path-breaking Test conquest when they take on the home team in the tour finale on Friday. The three-match series is level at 1-1 after Australia won the first ODI in Sydney by 34 runs and India won the second in Adelaide by six wickets.

Australia has added spinner Adma Zampa and pacer Billy Stanlake in their team as they announced their playing eleven for the final ODI against India. While Stanlake has been called as a replacement for Jason Behrendorff, who has been ruled out of the match due to back soreness, Zampa was included after Nathon Lyon was dropped from the team. For India, the batsmen look fine but there could be a replacement in the bowling zone. Khaleel Ahmed could be given a chance taking in consideration Mohammed Siraj’s poor performance in last match.

Here is the dream 11 for India vs Australia 3rd ODI at Melbourne.

Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Aaron Finch, Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, MS Dhoni, Glenn Maxwell, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Adam Zampa, Billy Stanlake.
