India vs Australia: India succumbed to a minuscule 3-run loss to Australia in the 2nd ODI. Australia won the toss and decided to bat first. Scoring 258/8 in their 50 overs quota, it was a belligerent knock of 63 from Phoebe Litchfield, a 50 from Ellyse Perry and a late cameo of 28 from Alana King that ensured Australia had a competitive score on the board. India, in the run chase, lost Yastika Bhatia early on.

With Smriti unable to capitalise on her start, the onus fell on Richa Ghosh, who scored a scintillating 96; however, as the dot balls and wickets kept tumbling, the equation got complicated, and India slipped to a three-run loss, thereby conceding the series 0-2 to Australia with one match to go.

India will look to play for pride in the last and final ODI and end the series on an auspicious note before heading into the T20I series skated to kickstart after this series. India will have a lot of positives to take away from the series but will have some concerns to address in this format.

On the other hand, Australia will continue their scintillating run in ODIs at India by going for the final win. Having formed a solid core and a winning combination, they would want to keep up the momentum and the good form.

India vs Australia – Head-to-Head Records in ODIs

Historically, India and Australia have squared off in 51 ODIs, resulting in only 10 wins and 41 losses to show for India. Still, interestingly, at home, India’s record has been far from impressive. Having secured only four victories in 22 ODIs and enduring 19 defeats on home soil, India hasn’t emerged triumphant against Australia in their last set of home matches since February 2007 and will look to overturn this record.

Notably, the Wankhede Stadium also witnessed the last set of ODI encounters between India and Australia way back in March 2012, where the home team succumbed to a 221-run loss and a subsequent defeat by five wickets in the final two ODIs of the three-match series, respectively.

India vs Australia 3rd ODI  Match – Key Players


  • Jemimah Rodrigues: In the form of her life, riding the purple patch, the right-handed batter has scored the most runs in ODIs for India. Amassing 796 runs in international cricket overall in 2023, she has announced her arrival on the centre stage. She will look to solidify her position in the team, contributing to the best of her abilities and guiding India to crucial victories. If the first ODI, where she scored a scintillating 82 amidst all the struggles, indicates her form, it will be interesting to see how she fares in the rest of the series.
  • Richa Ghosh: The promotion to #3 in the batting order augurs well for the 20-year-old batter hailing from Bengal. Scoring an unbelievable 96 in the 2nd ODI, she batted with a lot of grit and commitment, exhibiting her importance in the batting order. It will be interesting to see if the team management will persist with her at #3 or have her bat in the lower to beef up the batting for quick runs.

Additionally, players like Yastika Bhatia, Deepti Sharma, Smriti Mandhana and Pooja Vastrakar will be players to watch out for.


  • Ellyse Perry: A veteran of Australia for almost a decade and more, Ellyse Perry showcased why she is such a crucial cog for Australia. Scoring a brilliant knock of 75 in the first ODI after losing the first wicket and stitching a partnership with Phoebe Litchfield, she lends a lot of balance to the batting and always brings her A-game against classy oppositions.
  • Tahlia McGrath: Often considered the successor to Ellyse Perry, Tahlia McGrath has given enough indicators to fans and experts that she is here to stay. Her counter-attacking knock of 68 in the 1st ODI came when Australia most needed it, and how she negotiated the Indian bowling was spectacular.

Additionally, the likes of Ashleigh Gardner, Phoebe Litchfield, Georgia Wareham and Annabel Sutherland will be ones to watch out for.
