Australia set a decent score last time out, 289-3 was very competitive indeed but they let the Indians have too much space and subsequently the hosts swatted it all over the place. A tense finish ensued when a couple of wickets fell but the non-removal of Raina was key in India’s victory.
India are well placed at 5/6 with Betdaq to repeat that win in Margao, the Aussies a 23/20 chance at Sportingbet. Bollinger and Hussey have both departed for home for the tourists which does not bode well for the attack, which already seemed a little lacking in the 2nd ODI.
There probably wont be an issue of getting runs again for Australia, Clarke and White will see to that, the latter is 11/2 with to top score. There may however be an issue with getting the Indian order skittled and Raina is a big stumbling block.
Raina’s rapid fire performance was overshadowed by Kohli’s ton but Raina can be the main man for the hosts on Sunday, he is 6/1 at Skybet to register a top score on the way to an Indian victory.
