India sealed the series at Indore courtesy fifties from Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane and Hardik Pandya; chasing 294. They will like to keep things simple and try to demolish the Australians on Thursday as well. If India win the fourth ODI, this will be the first instance of hosts leading 4-0 versus Australia in a bilateral series. On the other hand, Virat Kohli will also surpass MS Dhoni and become the first Indian skipper to attain 10 ODI wins on trot. India remain undefeated in the format since the last ODI, of the five-match series, versus West Indies in July.

Australia have a lot to ponder upon. Their team selection has come under scrutiny, and will like to choose their XI wisely. Australia’s lower middle order has been a concern, and they will be eager to turn the tides playing freely with the series done and dusted. Ashton Agar has been ruled out due to a fractured finger, whereas India have made just one change to their squad by replacing Ravindra Jadeja with Akshar Patel.
