Players Who Will Not Play India vs. Australia 3rd ODI: Today’s match at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium will presumably feature the absence of a significant number of India’s squad members from this series.
Wednesday (September 27) in Rajkot will host the third and final One-Day International of the ongoing three-match ODI series between India and Australia. The Men in Blue have already secured a 2-0 series victory over the five-time World Cup champions, having won the first two One-Day Internationals (ODIs) in Mohali and Indore. For the third ODI between India and Australia, senior players Rohit Sharma, Kuldeep Yadav, Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, and Jasprit Bumrah will return after being rested for the first two matches. Despite the return of these star players, it is anticipated that India will not deploy a fully-strength squad in the third ODI. Today’s forthcoming match at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium will feature the absence of a large number of India’s squad members from this series.
