The One Day International series between Australia and India heads to Canberra on Wednesday as the Aussies look to complete a series sweep at Manuka Oval.

Our Australia v India 3rd ODI Tips & Preview can be viewed below.

Australia

The Australian batsmen have been near flawless in the opening two games of this One Day International series with every playing a their role well.

The greatest batsman in the world Steve Smith has posted back to back centuries, the second of which came off just 62 balls.

The top five in the Australian batting lineup all reached 50 runs in the second ODI at the SCG as the Australians piled on its third biggest ever ODI total of 4-389.

It’s really hard to go past Steve Smith with the way he is wielding the bat at the moment.

India

Despite comprehensively losing the first two One Day Internationals at the SCG, the Indian team has not been horrible by any stretch.

The SCG wicket was very flat and to be frank, was a batting paradise, and the Indians posted two scores of over 300 runs.

That would be good enough to win the majority of One Day matches.

Virat Kohli averaged just 11 runs at the SCG before Sunday’s game but he found some form when he gave his team a glimmer of hope in the second ODI, posting 89 runs from 87 balls.

He again looks the obvious choice to lead his team from the front and top score, remembering he heads home after the short form games are over and he will want to make an impact before departing.
