IND vs AUS, LIVE SCORE, 3rd ODI in Chennai: AUS 138/5; Kuldeep removes Warner, Labuschagne

16:15 (IST)

IND vs AUS LIVE Cricket Score

After 34 overs,Australia 173/5 ( Alex Carey (W) 20 , Marcus Stoinis 15)

Stoinis decides to take the attack to the Indian spinners, going for the reverse sweep against Kuldeep and Axar and collecting a boundary on each occasion. Kuldeep also ends up conceding five wides in his seventh over after getting sharp turn that beats both the keeper as well as Kohli at leg slip. Jadeja, meanwhile, bowls out his quota, finishing wicketless for 34 runs, and he's replaced by Shami, who has bowled just three overs so far today.

15:58 (IST)

IND vs AUS LIVE Cricket Score

After 30 overs,Australia 149/5 ( Alex Carey (W) 12 , Marcus Stoinis 4)


Marcus Stoinis joins Alex Carey, with the Aussies having another left-right pair at the centre. Meanwhile, Rahul returns to the field after being replaced by Kishan for a few overs. The Aussies are one short of the 150-mark at the end of the 30th over with two relatively new batters at the crease.

15:50 (IST)


OUT! Another wicket for Kuldeep, and this one's not very different from the Warner dismissal, as Labuschagne ends up mishitting the ball after skipping down the track and looking to go big downtown. Gill gobbles this up at long off, redeeming himself for a dropped chance earlier. Labuschagne isn't happy with his shot selection at all, knowing he threw his wicket away when his presence would've been crucial for the team to post a sizeable total. AUS 138/5

Labuschagne c Gill b Kuldeep 28(45)

15:47 (IST)


After 28 overs,Australia 138/4 ( Marnus Labuschagne 28 , Alex Carey (W) 5)

FOUR! A welcome boundary for the Aussies as Labuschagne shuffles right early, gets down on one knee and paddles this past substitute fielder Sundar at short fine. Sundar gives the ball a chase and puts in a slide in vain. Eight-run over from Jadeja.

15:39 (IST)


After 25 overs,Australia 126/4 ( Marnus Labuschagne 20 , Alex Carey (W) 1)

Kuldeep breaks a partnership that was starting to worry the Men in Blue, with Warner perishing while attempting to go big down the ground. Kuldeep raps new batter Alex Carey the very next delivery, with the Indians appealing confidently for leg-before. The bowler himself though, isn't interested in reviewing it after Rohit strongly suggests they take it upstairs. The ball is showing to be clipping the leg stump, meaning India would've retained their review even if it went the batter's way. Australia going at a little over five-an-over at the halfway stage.

OUT! Pandya plays his part in another dismissal, this time in the outfield with a fine grab near long off after a mishit by Warner off Kuldeep. The southpaw, playing his first game of this series, will be gutted by his shot selection. End of what was turning out to be another fine partnership for the Aussies. AUS 125/4

Warner c Pandya b Kuldeep 23(31)

15:27 (IST)

Australia vs India LIVE Cricket Score

After 23 overs,Australia 121/3 ( David Warner 23 , Marnus Labuschagne 16)

Just one off Jadeja's fifth over, with Warner collecting a single off the penultimate delivery to keep the scoreboard ticking. The left-arm spinner has held his end up nicely with a tidy spell, buiding pressure on the Warner-Labuschagne pair with dot balls. Labuschagne, meanwhile, decides to target Kuldeep the following over, clearing the midwicket fence with a slog-sweep to move into double figures.

15:17 (IST)


FOUR! A welcome boundary for the Aussies, their first in six overs as Warner decides to skip down the track and loft Kuldeep over the extra cover region. AUS 111/3

15:16 (IST)


After 20 overs,Australia 106/3 ( David Warner 16 , Marnus Labuschagne 8)

Kuldeep brought into the attack in the 19th over as Rohit opts to give Hardik a breather after a superb spell. The left-arm wrist spinner appeals for a stumping against Warner after beating the left-handed batter with extra turn, but the square-leg umpire shakes his head and decides against taking this upstairs. Warner's back foot was in the air for a fraction of a second, but firmly grounded by the time substitute keeper Kishan whipped the bails off. Jadeja comes close to grabbing his first wicket in the following over, with the ball falling just short of Siraj at the deep backward square-leg region after a thick top-edge off an attempted sweep by Warner. Meanwhile, the flurry of wickets certainly has slowed the Aussies down, with 18 coming in the last five overs.

15:04 (IST)


After 17 overs,Australia 94/3 ( David Warner 8 , Marnus Labuschagne 4)

Labuschagne joins Warner at the centre and doesn't take long to get off the mark, collecting a single two balls after Marsh's dismissal. Tidy second over from Jadeja, with four coming off it. Meanwhile, substitue Kishan dons the wicketkeeping gloves in Rahul's place with the latter deciding to leave the field for a bit. Meanwhile, the Indians are a lot more pumped up after a flurry of wickets, their ground fielding absolutely electric at the moment.

14:50 (IST)

India vs Australia LIVE Cricket Score

BOWLED! What a spell this has turned out to be from Hardik Pandya, who now gets the prized wicket of Mitch Marsh as the in-form opener ends up falling just three short of his half-century after chopping the ball onto the middle stump, knocking it over in the process. Marsh whirls his bat in the air in disappointment after missing out on his third consecutive fifty of the series. AUS 84/3

Marsh b Pandya 47(47)

14:45 (IST)

India vs Australia LIVE Cricket Score

After 14 overs,Australia 80/2 ( Mitchell Marsh 43 , David Warner 3)

Jadeja is introduced into the attack right before the drinks interval, with one Gujarati left-arm spinner replacing another. Starts off on a tidy note, with three singles coming off his first over. Meanwhile, Warner is batting at an unfamiliar spot today, though it still is an opportunity for him to shake off his lean patch and regain his confidence with the bat in a World Cup year.

14:43 (IST)

Smith's struggles against Pandya in numbers

14:35 (IST)

India vs Australia LIVE Cricket Score

OUT! Two wickets in as many overs for Hardik Pandya, who gets opposition skipper Steve Smith caught-behind for a three-ball duck! The Indians are back in the game after bleeding runs in the powerplay! AUS 74/2

Smith c Rahul b Pandya 0(3)

14:34 (IST)

India vs Australia LIVE Cricket Score

After 12 overs,Australia 74/1 ( Mitchell Marsh 40 , Steven Smith (C) 0)

FOUR! Marsh completes 3,000 runs in ODIs with a firm square cut off Axar that also takes him to 40. Siraj tries putting in a slide in the deep, but his foot's grazing the boundary cushion. Skipper Steve Smith, meanwhile, joins Marsh at the centre after Head's dismissal, with Davey Warner to follow at No 4.

14:28 (IST)

India vs Australia LIVE Score

OUT! Gill's dropped chance doesn't cost India dearly after all as Kuldeep latches on to the ball after Head guides it straight towards him at third man while going for an uppercut. Not much of a celebration from Pandya though. AUS 68/1

Head c Kuldeep b Pandya 33(31)

14:26 (IST)

India vs Australia LIVE Score

FOUR! DROPPED! Tough chance put down by Gill at deep square leg after a pull by Head off Pandya. The ball bursts through his palms after the youngster, who had dropped a couple of chances in the slip region in Mumbai, leans forward for the low grab. To make matters worse for him, the ball rolls away to the boundary rope. AUS 66/0

14:21 (IST)

India vs Australia LIVE Score

After 10 overs,Australia 61/0 ( Travis Head 27 , Mitchell Marsh 33)

Another expensive over from Siraj, with Head collecting two boundaries off — clobbering the ball over the midwicket region in the second delivery before opening the face of his bat to guide the ball towards third man three balls later. Siraj appeals for leg-before in the last delivery, but is turned down by umpire Nitin Menon , with skipper Rohit also not interested in the review. Might have been pitching outside. Axar, meanwhile, gets plenty of grip and turn in one of his deliveries in the 10th over, surprising Marsh. End of an excellent powerplay for the Aussies, with 61 coming off it with all 10 wickets intact.

14:10 (IST)

India vs Australia LIVE Score

Fifty of the partnership comes up between Aussie openers Head and Marsh, who are carrying on from where they left off in Vizag. The opening duo was cautious against Axar in his first over. Not this time as Head clobbers the first ball over the over for a straight six. Marsh then goes for an aerial drive over extra cover to bring up the milestone. AUS 52/0

14:07 (IST)

India vs Australia LIVE Score

After 7 overs,Australia 41/0 ( Travis Head 12 , Mitchell Marsh 28)

Rohit decides to bring Axar into the attack in the sixth over to try and stem the flow of runs. And sure enough, the left-arm spinner gives away just two singles in his first over. Change of ends for Siraj in the following over and the pacer ends up collecting the first maiden of the day, peppering Marsh with a series of short and back-to-length deliveries.

13:57 (IST)

IND vs AUS LIVE Cricket Score

After 5 overs,Australia 39/0 ( Travis Head 11 , Mitchell Marsh 27)

Big over from Shami, with 11 coming off his third including a boundary to Marsh off the last delivery — a length ball going down leg that is deflected past the backward square leg fielder — after Head clears the deep square leg fence in the second ball.

13:55 (IST)


SIX! Effortlessly flicked over the square-leg region by Head off Shami! First maximum for the southpaw. AUS 34/0

13:53 (IST)


After 4 overs,Australia 28/0 ( Travis Head 4 , Mitchell Marsh 23)

Marsh moves into the 20s with a couple of boundaries in Siraj's second over, pushing the ball through the gap between midwicket and mid-on before driving the ball straight down the ground off the last delivery. Once again, it's Marsh who's powering the Aussies to a solid start today. Siraj shouts for an LBW in the fourth delivery, and the Indians decide against reviewing it after umpire Madanagopal shakes his head. 'Impact' and 'Wickets' both 'Umpire's Call' on HawkEye.

13:43 (IST)

IND vs AUS 3rd ODI LIVE Cricket Score

SIX! First maximum of the day, as Marsh flicks a full delivery from Shami going down leg over the midwicket fence. The Indians had a fielder on the leg side boundary but he was reduced to a mere spectator on this occasion. AUS 19/0

13:40 (IST)

IND vs AUS 3rd ODI LIVE Cricket Score

After 2 overs,Australia 13/0 ( Travis Head 4 , Mitchell Marsh 9)

Shami and Siraj open the bowling for the Indians, with the latter conceding nine off his first over, including two boundaries in three balls as Marsh decides to target the vacant deep midwicket/cow corner region. Marsh then gets off the mark with a single off the penultimate delivery.

13:37 (IST)

FOUR! And now a boundary to Mitchell Marsh as he tucks a rising delivery from Mohammed Siraj, bowling the second over, towards the vacant midwicket fence to open his account. AUS 8/0

13:36 (IST)

IND vs AUS 3rd ODI LIVE Cricket Score

FOUR! Driven down the ground by Head off Shami as the left-handed opener gets the Aussies off the mark today! AUS 4/0

13:33 (IST)

IND vs AUS 3rd ODI LIVE Cricket Score

Australia have opted to stick to their old opening combination, as Mitchell Marsh walks out to open alongside Travis Head with David Warner shifting to the unfamiliar No 4 slot today. Mohammed Shami gears up to send down the first over of the day.

13:06 (IST)

IND vs AUS 3rd ODI LIVE Score

Rohit Sharma: We were actually thinking of fielding on this wicket. If at all, there will be some help for the bowlers. In these heaty conditions, we can try and utilise the spinners. Deciders are always interesting. Always nice to be in this kind of situation. It’s important that we try and test ourselves against quality opposition. We’re playing with the same team. It’s important to give the guys a bit of a run.

India XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, KL Rahul (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami

13:04 (IST)

IND vs AUS 3rd ODI LIVE Score

Steve Smith: Looks like a pretty dry surface, pretty hot out here. It’s been good fun. We love playing in crunch games. Should be exciting. It’s dry out here. We’ve brought in Agar for Ellis, and Warner comes in for Green, who’s a bit unwell today.

Australia XI: Travis Head, David Warner, Steven Smith (c), Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey (wk), Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis, Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa

IND vs AUS 3rd ODI LIVE Score

TOSS: Australia win the toss, and skipper Steve Smith opts to bat

12:58 (IST)

Sanjay Manjrekar and Ajit Agarkar analyse the Chepauk surface:

"Bowlers have had a little bit of help. Nice, even covering of grass. Rough at the centre, don’t think it will matter latter. Roughness might come into play in the first innings. You might get a bit of two-pace, might grip, but it will become a belter of a surface later in the evening."

12:47 (IST)

"Not a bad option"

Suryakumar Yadav has had back-to-back failures in the ongoing one-day series, getting dismissed for consecutive golden ducks in identical fashion off Mitchell Starc's bowling.

Former India opener Wasim Jaffer, meanwhile, believes Sanju Samson could be a valuable addition to the Indian XI for the series decider at the No 4 spot given SKY's looking a bit shaky at the moment.

Indian top order looks to tackle Mitchell Starc and Co after wobble

If Starc is giving sleepless nights to the batters, the other ‘Mitchell — Mitchell Marsh — has sent the Indian bowlers on a leather hunt by hitting nearly a dozen sixes (11) across two games. Tackling ‘Mitchell The Menace’ will be topmost on the Indian team’s agenda.

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the third ODI between India and Australia at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, aka Chepauk, in Chennai on Wednesday with the series currently locked at 1-1.

India, incidentally, are undefeated in bilateral contests at home since March 2019, when Australia defeated them 3-2 in a five-game rubber from 0-2 down, and will hope to preseve that record at the conclusion of their home season. Australia, meanwhile, are on a high after their dominant victory in Visakhapatnam, and will be backing themselves to fly back home with a trophy in their possession after failing to regain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

India vs Australia, 3rd ODI preview: Australia will be aiming to become first the time in four years to defeat India in a bilateral series in their own backyard when they face the Men in Blue in the series decider in Chennai on Wednesday.

The Aussies, incidentally, happen to be the last team to beat India in India, having won the five-match ODI series 3-2 in 2019 after losing the first two games.

The Steve Smith-led side will be backing itself to end the tour on a high after their dominant 10-wicket thrashing of the hosts in the second ODI in Visakhapatnam, where the Indians were bundled out for 117 in 26 overs before the visitors chased the target down in just 11 overs.

For the Indians, the focus once again will be on their shaky top-order, which has suffered back-to-back collapses though they were rescued by the likes of KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja in the series opener in Mumbai.

The Indian top-four has so far struggled against some sensational swing bowling from Mitchell Starc, who has collected nine wickets in two games including a five-for in Vizag, and might want to make a change or two to their combination heading into the series decider.


India: Rohit Sharma(c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, KL Rahul(w), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Jaydev Unadkat, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shardul Thakur, Ishan Kishan, Washington Sundar, Umran Malik

Australia: Mitchell Marsh, Travis Head, Steven Smith(c), Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey(w), Cameron Green, Marcus Stoinis, Sean Abbott, Nathan Ellis, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, David Warner, Glenn Maxwell, Ashton Agar, Josh Inglis
