The Indian and Australian teams reached in Chandigarh on Thursday from Jaipur to play the third cricket one-dayer of the seven-match series at Mohali on Saturday.

The teams checked-in at a five-star hotel in the afternoon after their arrival in Chandigarh.

According to Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Joint Secretary GS Walia, the Indian team is scheduled to hold their practice session at PCA Stadium on Friday morning.

“The Australians will hold pre-match press conference in the morning,” he said.

The Indian team will be on a high after they pulled off an incredible nine-wicket victory over Australia in the second cricket one-dayer played at Jaipur on Wednesday, achieving the second highest-ever run chase in One-Day International (ODI) history.

The hosts had lost to Australia in the opening encounter of the series.
