Trailing 1-2 in the seven-match ODI series with another wash-out looming large, India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja on Friday said his team now faces a do-or-die situation in the remaining matches against Australia.
The Aussies are currently leading 2-1 with rain having played spoilsport in the fourth ODI at Ranchi, and it could well be a similar result on Saturday given the bad weather here as well.
If tomorrow's match also gets abandoned, there will be only two ODIs (Nagpur and Bangalore) remaining, which India will be required to win in order to clinch the series.
"We all want the match to happen as we're trailing 1-2. There's not too much pressure as such. If this match doesn't happen, then we have to win the remaining two matches," said Jadeja on the eve of the fifth One-dayer against Australia at the Barabati Stadium.
