The third ODI between India and Australia will happen in Chennai. Here, we look at the pitch report of MA Chidambaram Stadium and the weather conditions in Chennai for IND vs AUS 2023.
It will be a long time after which international cricket returns to Chennai. There have already been a lot of stories of fans struggling for tickets and therefore, we could see a lot of fans turn up for the game on Wednesday. The fans would also want a close game or an India win before the IPL season starts.
It was a big wake-up call for Team India in the second encounter. The batters could not survive against Mitchell Starc and therefore, we could see them be more aware against the Aussie pacer on Wednesday. It will be important from a confidence point of view that Team India does well with the bat. The Aussies will want to do well and win the series. This will surely help them when they come back to India later in the year for the 2023 ODI World Cup. India could have a few changes for this encounter while the Aussies are expected to remain unchanged.
