IND vs AUS 3rd ODI Match Chepauk Stadium Head to Head : Now the last match of the ODI series between India and Australia will be played. This match is to be held on March 22 at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai. Two matches of the series have been done and both the teams are on par after winning one match each. It will be decided from the third match itself that which team will capture the series. Under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, Team India has not lost a single series so far this year. So the challenge for him/her will be huge. But looking at the performance of the Indian team’s batsmen in the two matches so far and the strength of Australia’s bowling, it seems that this victory is not going to be easy. The special thing is that Chepauk Stadium has not been very favorable for Team India in the last few years. Team India is looking for victory here for the last almost six years, which is not being completed.

Team India has not won a single ODI match in Chepauk, Chennai for six years.

Team India last came to Chepauk Stadium to play against the West Indies in the year 2019, but in that match the Indian team had to face a crushing defeat by eight wickets. But the last time in the year 2017, when the teams of India and Australia were face to face, when the Indian team had won, but this victory was only by 26 runs. Since then there has been no victory. In this stadium of Chennai, the Indian team has played 14 ODIs so far. Out of this, the Indian team has won seven matches and has faced defeat in the rest. That is, the winning percentage is only 50 percent. Which cannot be said to be good enough. Meanwhile, the special thing is that the first ODI match at this stadium was played between India and Australia. This year was 1987 and Australia won by defeating the Indian team by a minor margin of one run.

One of the top 3 of Team India will have to play a big innings.
The special thing about the match to be held on March 22 is that Rohit Sharma is going to play here for the first time as captain in ODIs. In such a situation, all eyes will be on him/her. We have already told you that Rohit Sharma has not lost a single ODI series in the year 2023. First, Team India defeated Sri Lanka badly in the three-match ODI series and after that, New Zealand was also cleaned up. Now, the way Australia has made a comeback in the second match and has stunned the Indian team, it seems that this match is not going to be easy. For the victory of Team India, it is necessary that any one batsman from the top 3 i.e. Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli plays a big innings.
