INDIA v AUSTRALIA 5TH ODI: TIPS & SELECTIONS
India and Australia are tied 2-2 after a comeback from the toursits, making the fifth and final ODI a series decider in Delhi on Wednesday.
India won the opening two games and seemed destined to win the series, but things are still all to play for after a comeback from Australia took the series to this decider.
We pick out some of the players you should have in your selections for the 5th ODI.
Virat Kohli ($22,400)
Virat Kohli has been once again the mainstay of the India batting. The Indian captain has scored 290 runs in the series, including a century. He might be the most expensive player, but he is a must to have in your selections.
Peter Handscomb ($15,100)
Peter Handscomb has shown that his fleet-footed batting against the spinners makes him an ideal batsman for the conditions. With 184 runs in the series, the Aussie bat has shown that he is one of the best in this squad when playing against the spinners. Another good knock is in store.
Adam Zampa ($15,500)
Australian spinners have outperformed their Indian counterparts in the last two matches, and they have momentum aiding their charge. Adam Zampa has been one of the success stories with eight wickets and he has given the edge to his side in the last two games.
KL Rahul ($11,000)
KL Rahul will be eager for more game time to press his World Cup claims. Rahul got a fleeting chance in Mohali to stake a claim for the number four spot and he will be looking to make it count again in Delhi.
